Our Opinion: Work begins on biosciences park

An exciting new multiuse project is coming to Tucson’s South Side, as preliminary work has started on the University of Arizona Biosciences Research Park.

A long-vacant parcel south of East 36th Street between South Kino Boulevard and South Park Avenue is being cleared.

First up is a detention system to capture and channel water. Then will come the biosciences park along with mixed-income homes and a large shopping center built by private developers.

There eventually will be a hotel and conference centers as well as research buildings as part of the UA complex. Recreation facilities will be built in the 23-acre detention basin.

The development will bring high-end jobs as well as homes and shopping to an area of town that long has done without those amenities. It is good to see the work under way.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
