We made the following specific suggestions, which we hope you’ll incorporate into your own comments:
Thank you again for your ongoing engagement in the public process for redesigning Reid Park. We are optimistic that the robust participation of Tucson Audubon and our community will result in a beautiful, accessible, multi-purpose park we can all celebrate and enjoy!
