Citing the Pima County Regulatory Bill of Rights, Avra Valley resident and retired activist Albert Lannon filed a formal complaint with the Board of Supervisors at their January 2 meeting alleging that County Administrator Charles Huckelberry and his staff “for at least five years have ignored, violated, mis- and re-interpreted BOS Resolution 2007-343, making new county policy not adopted by this board, without notice or public discussion, in favor of an Avra Valley route for a proposed Interstate 11.”

BOS Resolution 2007-343 expressly “opposes the construction of any new highways in or around the county that have the stated purpose by bypassing the existing Interstate 10 as it is believed that the environmental, historic, archaeological, and urban form impacts could not be adequately mitigated.” The resolution specifically discusses the Avra Valley as worthy of protection.
