Watch 22ndstreet.info; skatepark open and busy

TUCSON -- Keep an eye on 22ndstreet.info for updates on the City/RTA proposal to widen 22nd St. through south downtown.

The skatepark is done, good size and getting a lot of use. Some minor problems with graffiti and trash some days. Could be a positive long-term for the park, but not sure on wisdom of plans to extend it to east. That spot could be a good one for a nice zocalo for neighbors to gather.

Bertha Gallego has been circulating the petition to name the skatepark after her late husband Albert, who was a long-time neighborhood leader. We all signed.
