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 Flowing Wells NRSA Update 2020.

To see the complete report by Corky, which is impressive and well worth a careful reading--or even a casual reading if you are pressed for time--go to the Pages & Links page under Documents.  Comments can be sent to Corky Poster at cposter@pmm.design

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR TENANTS CONCERNED ABOUT PAYING THEIR RENT IN THESE CHALLENGING TIMES

Pima County has shared this helpful information for tenants in need of help with their rent during these challenging times. Your help in getting this information distributed to residents in your neighborhood would be greatly appreciated.

Click here for an English/Spanish flyer on rent help, which includes a link to Pima County's Eviction Prevention Program. The website includes information on:

  • The CDC moratorium, which ends on December 31, 2020. To be protected, tenants must submit a declaration form, available on the website. Note that the most recent interpretation of the moratorium allows landlords to take tenants through the eviction hearing process to get a judgment. However, they should not be evicted until the moratorium lifts.

  • Sources for rent assistance. While the County does not know how much rent assistance will be available going forward, the County is working to determine the level of need, which appears to be one of the factors that some judges are considering as to whether the moratorium will be enforced. 

  • Additional resources for tenants and landlords. 


Neighbors,

Due to the ongoing need to maintain distance during the pandemic, we have canceled the General Meeting of the Flowing Wells Neighborhood Association and Community Coalition, but we are scheduling online meetings now.  

We will be continuing to send out and posting on our web page our newsletter and some helpful information for residents from time to time. Please stay healthy and please visit our webpage for any new updates! .

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:

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...
