Episode 156: Working To Keep Teens Out of Lockup

Also, upgrades to wastewater facilities, an Oro Valley tax to develop a park, and the Kino Sports Complex.

In an effort to reduce the number of kids in detention, the Pima County Court opened its Alternative Community Engagement Services (ACES) Center last year. We take a visit and interview Division Director for Juvenile Probation Services Christopher Vogler.

Oro Valley residents are being asked if they want to adopt a secondary property tax to pay for development of the Naranja Park. We chat with Mayor Satish Hiremath and opponent Jim Horn about proposition 454.

Upgrades to two wastewater treatment plants have had a rejuvenating effect on one stretch of the Santa Cruz River that flows year-round. A conversation with the Sonoran Institute’s Claire Zugmeyer and Pima County’s Evan Canfield about progress that’s been made and what’s in store for the river.

Eight years after Major League Baseball left Tucson, the Kino Sports Complex is thriving. We ask director Reenie Ochoa about what’s going on at the center.
