Your Neighborhood Needs Help!
May we call on you?
Who will help?
The nominating committee for the Jefferson Park Neighborhood Assn is seeking your help!!  Four of the five officers have come to their term limits. A healthy neighborhood shares the board seats and responsibilities--the board expands, everyone shares the work!  An all inclusive board is why Jefferson Park has an Historic District, street signs that declare it an historic district, NR-1 zoning and the clarification of the R-1 zoning in Tucson to prohibit  group dwellings under the R-1 zoning.  Consider volunteering to join the group.  Think about it for a moment.  It is likely that every home in our neighborhood, including yours, has benefited from at least one of these efforts of your board.  All welcome. Click here. Print the flyer, look over the positions which need filling, and scan or mail your info.  The nominating committee will follow up with you.  Thanks for caring about our neighborhood.
