Campbell Ave Enhancement Project plans have some concerned

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

People who walk, bike and live on Campbell Avenue between Fort Lowell Road and Grant Road had the chance to see the latest Campbell Avenue Enhancement Project plans at a meeting Monday night.

The construction project will repair sidewalks to make it safer for people to stroll through the area. However, the biggest concern from people at the meeting is that there is not a whole lot of enhancement in the plans to attract people to businesses in the area; that some argue was the original plan.

Residents thought there would be more trees and landscaping because of ideas discussed in the past several years. Project planners say constraints have forced them to do away with much of the landscaping plans.

The nearly one million dollar project is expected to start by mid 2014. The project is being funded by federal dollars and the Arizona Department of Transportation.
