EVENT: Rio Nuevo sin Dinero: The Future of the Tucson Origins Project
DATE/TIME: Tuesday, September 1, 2009 at 6:00 p.m.
LOCATION: Casa Vicente, 375 S. Stone Avenue, Tucson, AZ.
This meeting of Archaeology Café convened on Tuesday, September 1, 2009. A panel led by Bill Doelle, Gayle Hartmann, Diana Hadley and other distinguished guests shared up-to-the-minute information about the future of the Tucson Origins Project and the Tucson Origins Heritage Park. These panelists were instrumental in conceiving the original Tucson Origins research project, which served as the intellectual basis for the now-troubled Rio Nuevo downtown redevelopment project. In spite of what you may have read about Rio Nuevo, progress has been made. Guests joined us for a frank discussion about what future options may be available at the site of Tucson’s birthplace, with or without continued support from the tax increment financing district.
