Re: “Ruling: Mini-Dorms Are Not Single Family Residences

maybe if you lived next door or in close proximity to a mini dorm you would understand. most of us are working people. students for the most part are not. I live in a historic neighborhood which is quite nice. houses are expensive and i think much nicer than goodmans mini dorms. these students party anytime of the day or night they want to.
i have had hundreds of students partying next door on a Tues, Wed, Thursday night.
I mean partying until 3:00 am. If you think that is fair for a residential neighborhood, than i say GROW UP. No one is jealous of Goodmans homes. That is ridiculous.
Yes there are other rentals in the area, and many to students. If they party into the night they are also distrupting the peace and subject to red tagging and fines. We have talked to some of these students and have asked them to limit their parties to weekends and decent hours and we have been told to xxxx off. Dorms are for schools not residential neighborhoods. As far as the tax the city would loose - thats also a joke. These homes will not sit empty.
It is one thing to support the U of A and the Wildcats and another to have to live in a neighborhood where SOME students think they can do as they please,day or night.
Yes Tucson is a college town and has the Air Force also. I have NEVER heard of a complaint against a military person. They have more sense than to annoy their neighbors and disrupt the peace. These are historic neighborhoods that in any other city are cherished. I have lived in other college towns and do not find this issue to be a problem like it is in Tucson. I went to the University of Miami / Coral Gables. Coral Gables had student rentals. What they did not have was offensive students thinking they can dominate a neighborhood, do as they please, and offend the other neighbors who might be workers, retirees, families.
Why live so close to the University ? Because this is central Tucson, where the heart of the historic properties are. This is close to many conveniences, not just the University.
Yes, I went to school, I rented a home in Coral Gables. NO I did nor party into the night or disturb my neighbors in any way. That is just good common sense and decency.
