After a long, but productive process the Dunbar/Spring Neighborhood, working with many entities including the Pima County and the City of Tucson, has finished putting in extensive water harvesting infrastructure, native vegetation, traffic circles, chicanes, neighborhood art, and more.
We celebrated completion of the project on Saturday morning, braving cold and rain. Thank you to everyone who made it out. Special thanks to neighborhood's own Green Gourmet catering for great food and drink for the event.
Dunbar/Spring has finalized several art projects in the neighborhood. Click on this story to see a Photo Gallery of several of the finished art pieces and water harvesting bumpouts and other features.

Town West has a development proposal for the area known as the Franklin Docks, where the All Souls procession used to end. They came to the D/S mmonthly meeting in Dec. to show a preliminary idea of what they would like to put on the site. Images are from what was presented to the neighborhood at that meeting.
