Mayor’s Update – April 23, 2015

Final Week to Pledge to Save Water in National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation

April 30th is the last day to pledge to save water in the National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation. Currently, Tucson is in 2nd place for our size and region. If we take 1st place, we’ll be entered into a drawing for a pocket park landscape makeover, including a water-smart irrigation system. Tucsonans who pledge will be entered into prize drawings too, including for the grand prize: a Toyota Prius.


Take the pledge at and help Tucson retake the lead!
