A solid plan for court complex

Citizen Staff Writer
Our Opinion

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Tucson Municipal and Pima County Justice courts are working in cramped and outdated facilities.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.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
