There is a meeting in Tucson on Thursday, August 23, at Pima Community College at 410 N. Bonita Ave. at 5:30pm to hear both sides.
Public input will shape the final plan, and we encourage you to attend one of the public meetings to learn more about the draft RMP and voice your opinions and suggestions.
