AUTO RESTRICTED ZONE/MULTI-USER VEHICLE SYSTEM STUDY. TECHNICAL APPENDIX: TUCSON AUTO RESTRICTED ZONE STUDY
The report examines a proposal for the preparation of an auto restricted zone (ARZ) in Tucson. In order to revitalize the downtown, the City plans include reinforcement of the public transit system, construction of a major private office building and a public library, studies for rehabilitation of in-town historic residential neighborhoods, and attempts to attract new residential development downtown. The revitalization has made considerable progress, but has not yet succeeded in the critical area of attracting people downtown or keeping workers there for other activities. The government center and the financial district are active during the work day, but are deserted in the evenings; the new Civic Center is underused; and the shopping areas are declining. In considering an ARZ for Tucson, the main questions that had to be answered were whether it could help in overcoming downtown's negative image, in attracting and keeping people there, in unifying and clarifying the new and old districts, and in creating economic activity.
