Catalina Vista Neighborhood Association
1986, Catalina Vista Neighborhood Association is
managed by an annually elected board comprised of
neighborhood residents. Board members generally
meet on the fourth Monday of each month at the
Arizona Inn, except in summer months with changes on
holidays, as appropriate. Meeting space is courtesy
of the Inn, and is open to the public. They often
feature speakers who present useful information
about the City or County that impacts then
neighborhood. The meeting schedule for the first
half of 2015 is as follows. January 26, February 23,
March 23, April 27, May 18, June 22. The board
usually takes a break during July and August.
Board meetings are generally held on the fourth
Monday of the month at 7 pm at the Arizona Inn. No
meetings occur on July or August. If there is an
issue you would like to place on the board agenda,
please contact the board president, Dan Schnoll at
The purpose of the
neighborhood association is to preserve and protect
the quality of life for our residents. Board members
are responsible for advocating on behalf of the
neighborhood on issues that impact our future.
Examples of neighborhood issues include Grant Road
widening, the future of the commercial real estate
at the corner of Campbell including the former movie
theater and Bookman’s, traffic mitigation, street
conditions, weed mitigation, and the like.
Frequently, neighborhood activists can be seen
picking up palm fronds after a storm, or clearing
trash from Tahoe Park or street areas.
Another important function of
the board is to review rezoning requests and liquor
license applications from businesses that surround
the neighborhood. Board members carefully guard the
intent of the neighborhood’s deed restrictions to
ensure that businesses and homes respect them during
remodeling or home or business additions.
Board members represent the
neighborhood in a variety of local committees such
as the Campus Community Relations Committee, the
Grand Road Task Force and numerous City of Tucson
committees or commissions.
The Board structure is
composed of committees chaired by board members.
Committees can also include neighborhood residents
not serving on the board, but who want to become
involved in issues of interest to them. Committees
include Traffic, Social, Adopt-A-Park, and a
neighborhood Welcome Committee. Residents interested
in serving on any of the committees should contact
the Association President, or committee
