Access Tucson Extends Closure

Access Tucson has announced via e-mail that it is extending its shutdown in light of city funding cuts:

On January 27th Access Tucson announced that facilities would be closed February 10th through March 9th to save money and allow Access Tucson the time to work with the City of Tucson on a plan that keeps public access alive.

The City promised to move quickly. The City Manager's recommendation to keep Access Tucson operating was supposed to go to the Mayor and Council by February 23rd but did not; it has been put on the Council agenda for this coming Tuesday, March 9th during their study session at 11am.

The result of this two-week delay: Access Tucson will now remain closed through March 23rd.

Every week that there is a delay in resolving the problem
