Join MPA and AIA Southern Arizona for a joint program on the Sunshine Mile.

Over the last year, Rio Nuevo, in cooperation with the City of Tucson and RTA, engaged community members in a conversation to develop a land-use vision for future development along the Sunshine Mile. Based on community input received at these meetings, Rio Nuevo has developed a proposal for an optional Overlay Zone, which could be used for properties on and surrounding this stretch of Broadway.  

This overlay, which is being called the Sunshine Mile District or “SMD”, recognizes the distinct development characteristics along the Sunshine Mile, supports the community’s vision for mixed-use development as well as adaptive reuse of historic properties, encourages land uses that foster economic development and enhances the character of the Sunshine Mile.  

The Broadway- Euclid to Country Club- Improvement Project will have significant impacts on properties along and near the Broadway corridor, especially on the north side of Broadway Boulevard where expansions of the right-of-way were needed to accommodate the planned improvements. The expanded roadway reduced the depth and size of many parcels, thereby creating properties that would be difficult to develop under current zoning regulations.
*This event is available and free to all MPA and AIA SA Members*

The link to join the meeting will be sent out the morning of the 5th, to those who have registered. Registration ends at 5 PM on August 4, 2020.
