The Armory Park Historic Advisory Board (APHZAB)
Important Notes: (1) Because of the pandemic, regular meetings are not being held. Some virtual meetings will take place as needed. Go to the City Clerk’s webpage to see if a meeting is scheduled. Notices will be published at least 24 hours before the meeting. (2) Updated Design Guidelines are now in a lengthy process of review. When the new version is adopted, the information on this site is likely to change significantly.
APHZAB and the Tucson/Pima County historic preservation process are major players in preserving the historic character of Armory Park. APHZAB reviews projects which propose to construct or alter the exterior of any structure in the HPZ. and makes recommendations which are then considered by the City/County board and the Planning and Development Services Department director. The Tucson Mayor and Council are the final reviewers if there is an appeal.
