The JPNA long ago created a "Land Use Committee".  That group spearheaded the Neighborhood Preservation Zone for Jefferson Park.  There are only two neighborhoods in Tucson that have this protection - Feldman's and JP.  That committee got the R-1 zoning redefined to exclude mini-dorms and all Tucson neighborhoods benefited. Today it continues to meet to review and give input to the city on proposals for remodels and building in Jefferson Park.  It is not anti-building.  It helps neighbors understand and retain the contributing status of their properties. To see the processes for that committee, find a link to the historic nomination, and find a list of the contributing properties by address go to the Jefferson Park web-site under the "Building in JP" tab:

This committee meets monthly, receives notice of permits and oversees the plans.  It might invite the developer to meet to discuss the project before sending the neighborhood determination to the city.  This committee welcomes new members.  If you are interested in understanding city web-sites and processes and want to help protect your neighbor- hood, contact the e-mails listed on the web-site.
