Public comment sought for habitat plan in Avra Valley

The habitat conservation plan for 20,000 acres of Tucson-owned land in Avra Valley is open for public comment.

An open house is scheduled for 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday in the Javelina Room of Ryan Airfield, 9700 W. Ajo Way.

The plan is intended to ensure that the water supply and renewable energy projects the city has planned for the parcel will not endanger vulnerable plants and animals. The land provides habitat for the endangered lesser long-nosed bat, among other species.

The comment period closes May 18.

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
