Sabino Canyon lots overflowing, but parking laws must be obeyed

A surge in visitors at the Sabino Canyon Recreation Area sparked a parking melee, with cars lining the road outside the Northeast Side attraction.

“We’re not sure whether it’s the great weather, people taking ‘staycations’ at home, or the fact that the shuttle is operating all the way to Stop 9 for the first time in two years,” said Larry Pratt, the Coronado National Forest’s urban-developed recreation project manager.

The biggest problem is during peak visiting hours on Saturdays and Sundays. To maintain safety, parking laws will be strictly enforced, says a news release from the national forest.

An overflow parking lot is in development by the nonprofit Friends of Sabino Canyon and should be available later this year, the release said.

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.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
