Input sought on plan for 20K acres in Avra Valley

Citizen Staff Writer

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.

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
