Wait, the four neighborhood's worked with the developers to get the businesses at the Bridges built, bringing jobs and opportunity to the neighborhoods that had been long neglected. A process was followed under city rules, that allowed consideration of the movie sign, and was approved and was only for the one location. Two people who don't live in any of the four neighborhoods, or even remotely in the area, make allegations that the neighborhoods were bought off and special favors were granted when the rules and process were followed. So where is the story? Not in this article. In the article its states Design View Committee and Review Design Committee when there is one committee, the Design Review Committee. The rules on the city books were followed on this. The neighborhoods wanted the theater but the Tucson Weekly, trying to get any circulation, puts out yet another negative story towards the south side and tries to continue the stereotype and prejudice long and wrongly associated on the residents.
Please - sounds like another Alan Lang! Property tax exemptions need to fit within the Arizona Revised Statutes for exemptions. The Assesor doesn't have the discretion to override them. If an organization th inks they should qualify they need to draft legislation and get it passed through the State legislature. These people are asking permission for the rest of us to pay higher taxes.
i dont have a problem with a big billboard. but i agree that rules are rules and need to be followed
Great, a 100 foot sign. Just what we need to block the views of the desert. If I had asked to build a drive-in movie theater and put up a bunch of 60 foot tall screens, the screaming from the nimbys and others would drown out any comment about increased revenue and taxes.
Movie theaters are rapidly becoming dinosaurs of the entertainment industry with people streaming movies and watching on their big screen TV's at home. Who can afford to spend $20 or more for one movie and a few snacks when we can watch the same thing at home for a couple of dollars?
Technology has nearly killed the print media and the movie theater is next on the endangered list. What will we use those huge empty buildings with their huge billboard signs for in twenty years?
Sorry guys, as a character from an old TV show would say, "This does not compute."
Mr. Johnson's time within the Pima County Assessor's Office has shown a record of his abrasive, unproductive work habits. Mr. Johnson showed a complete inability to grasp the basic laws from the Arizona state legislature governing the property valuation process. His dealings with fellow employees both within and outside the Assessor's Office resulted in one of the highest number of complaints to Human Resources for any employee there in over a decade.
Mr. Johnson is not an individual suited for such a position or worthy of the support of the voting public.
My dealings with the assessor's office left a lot to be desired. I had to send a copy of my third letter to him with a cc: to my Supervisor. That got some action.
...the result of either not allocating stuffiest resources and personnel..." HUH? Sufficient?????
Mr Guide if you're still around I'd like to speak with you. At Strychninewolf@gmail.com
Where is this road? I heard about this on the news. If it can't be patrolled on a regular basis then we the public need to make a point to do this!! I can't believe that this is so well known and nothing had been done!!??
"And, even though DACAmented working youth pay taxes, they still can't get insurance through the Affordable Care Act's online marketplace and are ineligible for AHCCCS, the state's version of Medicaid."
So we'll gladly accept their tax dollars but say 'screw you' to any kind of assistance that would allow for basic medical care? It's not about liberal versus conservative...it's about basic human decency. These are young individuals who didn't make the choice to be here but are trying to make the best of their circumstances and become productive, educated members of society. The hypocrisy is maddening...they are told to earn their way just like everyone else but are never given the infrastructure to do so.
If a local business wanted to do this, they would have had to file an environmental impact statement (spending thousands) wait for years of hearings and then be turned down. Or fined.
But not PC. Once again, are they above the law?
I'm a liberal, but I still think people should require documentation to be here. As someone who travels a lot in Europe, I know you can't just sneak in and camp out anywhere without a form on documentation without being immediately deported beyond your visa.
What other country can you enter illegally and drain their resources? Why should it be allowed in this country? These people need to go home! I stopped trying to understand liberals a long time ago. Their thinking on these matters simply makes no logical sense. I guess it's true that liberalism is a mental disorder. Is there no medication available?
Meanwhile their deadbeat parents shun all responsibility for their very own children, replaced by liberals and other people's money. They came here to take and still give nothing. Taxpaying citizens will never hear a thank you.
Whine, whine, bitch, bitch. If it's so bad here, maybe their parents should've stayed home.
Misogynists to the right, victims to the left. I'm a pony. Please label the center bathroom for me.
You don't want industry because they manufacture a bulldozer to contain those Mutts in the Middle East? Go flush it down the toilet in your third bathroom.
This will be a boon for the west side. Don't let the naysayers foment resentment.
I am with Josefina on this. We will have to see what the company can do to help bring forth some of our local culture. I can see that it would be a stretch but if a Fortune 500 company can't do it then who can? I heard some arguments, in talking with neighbors, that the machines were used in offensive ways. Eg. Mining, used to mow down Palastinian housing. That doesn't make a good argument. The local mines, Rosemont, and Oak Flats aren't going to be getting free tractors. And About Palastine, how a tool is used has no bearing on the manufacturer. BTW, the color of the skin of our neighborhood representatives has no bearing either. They are all just good neighbors. Don't go there.
Where can one look for job offers from Catepillar? I know a very experienced person whom I can refer for this expansion.
