Flowing Wells Revitalization Strategy Area Plan

 

   
   

In the past Flowing Wells has partnered with Pima County in the preparation of two HUD-sponsored Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA) Plans. NRSA helps Pima County and other government agencies, as well as non-profits, understand how to serve the needs of the Flowing Wells community with services and improvements.  The original Plan was completed in 2001, followed by an update in 2007. Those two plans have guided our Neighborhood Association and Community Coalition in developing numerous projects. 

The 2020 Plan, developed by Poster Mirto McDonald (project planner, Corky Poster), builds on the successes of the previous two plans and lays out a set of Goals and Strategies/Projects to carry Flowing Wells forward into the future. Attached is the much-advanced-but-not-final Draft 4 of the Flowing Wells NRSA Update 2020. It will be the basis for the September 3 Board meeting and the September 17 on-line Community Meeting. It is intended to be a basis for additional comments from all interested parties. 

As a reminder, here are the agreed-upon next steps for the Plan.

1. Additional comments from FWNACC Steering Committee.

2. Link to final draft in FWNACC newsletter, August 28, 2020

3. FWNACC Board meeting on September 3, 2020, to review draft.

4. Slide presentation preparation, summarizing major plan items.

5. On-line slide presentation to Flowing Wells community on September 17, 2020

6. Physical draft available September 18-30, 2020 at the library or the Ellie Towne Community Center

7. Additional community/Steering Committee comments by September 30, 2020

8. Finish the Final Draft for final comments by October 13, 2020

9. Distribute to FWNACC and to Pima County for final review.

10. Complete the Final NRSA by November 5, 2020.

CITY ONCE AGAIN OFFERING ROLL-OFFS FOR NEIGHBORHOOD CLEANUPS

Roll-Offs Available in November 2020:  As you may know, with the onset of the pandemic the City Environmental and General Services Department (EGSD) suspended the provision of roll-offs for neighborhood cleanups.  So, we are excited to announce that starting in November EGSD once again will be offering roll-offs. 

Requesting Roll-Offs:  To request roll-offs for a cleanup, click here to see service details and to access the fillable application. 

Make It a Fun, Productive, and SAFE Event:  A cleanup is one way for neighbors to reconnect and get some fresh air while tidying up their neighborhood.  However, please note that if your neighborhood should decide to undertake a cleanup, we strongly encourage you to include in your event planning measures for social distancing, a request that people wear masks if near others, and provision of hand sanitizer and, of course, water.

If you have any questions about EGSD's neighborhood cleanup service, please contact:

The Images of America Flowing Wells book by Kevin and Marie Dailey is now available at local book stores. The FWNACC will donate all royalties earned from sales of this book to fund schlorships for Flowing Wells students beginning in 2021. The book is "dedicated to all Flowing Wells family and friends, past, present, and future, who share a vision of a tight-knit community bigger than any one individual and built on hard work, with the school district at its core."   

History:

In 1995, community residents concerned about safety and quality of life, joined together to form the Flowing Wells Neighborhood Association and Community Coalition (FWNACC).

Initially, FWNACC activities included installing streetlights, reducing street flooding and closing drug-houses. Much of the initial phase centered around grafitti abatement.?  More...
