Our Opinion: A solid plan for court complex

Chuck Huckelberry has come up with a good plan to get work started on a long-delayed downtown court complex.

Huckelberry, the Pima County administrator, has proposed that the complex be built in two phases. The first would be started next year and suit court needs until 2018. The second phase would be built before 2028.

Tucson Municipal and Pima County Justice courts are working in cramped and outdated facilities. The new complex is badly needed, but ballooning costs delayed construction.

Much of the unexpected cost came from unearthing and reburying the remains of 1,100 people interred in a cemetery dating to the earliest days of Tucson.

By erecting the complex in phases, costs can be held down and the building expanded as needed.

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.
