Vail residents will vote — for the third time — in the November General Election to decide whether the unincorporated Pima County community south of Tucson should be allowed to incorporate.

The Pima County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Monday to put the incorporation of Vail on the ballot for the Nov. 7 election. This will be the third time community members have tried to incorporate, with the most recent effort in 2013.

Incorporate Vail Arizona, a group of Vail business owners and residents who want to incorporate their community, collected enough signatures to put incorporation on the ballot. They had to collect at least 1,537 signatures of qualified electors within the proposed boundaries. The petitioners collected 2,542 signatures, and 2,058 were considered valid.

Reasons for disqualification of signatures ranged from missing addresses, signature on file did not match the signature on the petition, some signatures had missing dates, or multiples of the same signatures were found, among others.

For subscribers:These are some of the best public schools in Ariz.; Vail Unified District schools among them

Residents against the incorporation addressed the board during a public comment portion of the meeting, asking the board to not approve the petition to proceed to an election. However, county staff said the board was required to add the petition because petitioners collected the required number of signatures.

“The role of the board is essentially ministerial to call the election after a review is conducted of signature, the role of the Recorder and Election Department is to conduct that review,” said Chief Civil Deputy County Attorney Samuel Brown. “Once the review is conducted, it is the board’s duty to call the election.

Supervisor Rex Scott said the board heard numerous complaints about Vail residents who thought their area should not have been included in the boundary.

County staff explained the issue would be for the courts to decide and was not in the purview of the board.

According to the county, if the election is successful and Vail is incorporated, that will result in additional revenue to the county.

About 20,000 residents live in Vail which is just 23 miles southeast of Tucson. Those in support of incorporation said it would allow residents to have more control over the growth and development of their town and have access to state funds.

TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — In just under two weeks Vail will vote on what the future of the town between the tracks is.

Incorporation is on the ballot once again, and neighborhoods outside of the main housing developments are concerned about becoming part of a city.

Karen Bazinet lives in Whetstone Ranch and loves hanging out with her horses.

“This is our mare Sadie, and that’s our gelding Zeke,” she said.

She fears incorporation could change zoning laws.

"We’re not the city, we are rural," Bazinet said.

She lives seven miles away from the growing developments north of the highway.

“If they want to incorporate go for it. But leave us alone," Bazinet said.

While incorporation includes her, she fears it could exclude the horses.

“We’re zoned to be rural, we’re allowed to have livestock, we’re allowed to have horses. They could change all of that," Bazinet said.

She’s one of many in southern Vail who oppose incorporation.

Her neighbor Dennis Luebbert is also voting no on Prop 402.

He says previous incorporation props have failed twice before and he doesn’t get why it’s back on the ballot again.

“I would like to see limitations on this so we don’t have to keep fighting this every few years," Luebbert said.

This neighborhood isn’t the only one on the outskirts of Vail which was added to the incorporation map.

The Pistol Hill community also ended up on the map.

Katie Breeding and John Sargent have lived here for decades, claiming they never agreed to be part of the new city.

Cacti and dirt roads surround their properties.

“They’ve never given us a reason why they want to incorporate this area," Sargent said.

Breeding also doesn’t believe her property can be legally incorporated.

“So there’s a statute, ARS 9-101 and section 'F' on that says 'an area to be incorporated should be urban in nature, it should not include uninhabited, rural, or farm lands,'" Breeding said.

Read ARS 101-9 here.

“We out here thought we're pretty rural. There’s land north were they have farmland and run cattle. They have us on their incorporation map and we believe it’s against state statutes," She said.

MaRico Tippett is the Vice President of Incorporate Vail Arizona (IVA).

He says becoming a city will give the community local control.

“Anytime you have a government closest to you, that’s the one that will be more responsive and have the most effect on the lives of the residents," Tippett said.

He says the board has no plans to exclude Sadie and Zeke from incorporation.

“We have to create a general plan, and in that general plan the idea would be that all current zoning would be grandfathered," Tippett said. "So there wouldn’t be a change.”

As for Breeding’s complaint that her property can’t be incorporated, Tippett says they considered all laws when drawing the map.

“We have kept in lines with the intent and letter of the law when it comes to urban versus rural.”

Lastly, adding he recognizes the new divide in the town between the tracks and hopes everyone can get along after the election.

“Whether we decide to incorporate or now, we’re all going to have to come together and decide how to govern our community," Tippett said.

The election is November 7.

Vail School District attracting teachers with tiny homes

(KGUN) — When Mikayla Edris comes home, she gets to breathe a sigh of relief that she’s living somewhere she can afford.“I really struggled looking around, trying to find a place to live.

TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — When Mikayla Edris comes home, she gets to breathe a sigh of relief that she’s living somewhere she can afford.

“I really struggled looking around, trying to find a place to live. All of the apartments and houses have huge, either rent or mortgages,” Edris said.

She only pays $775 a month for rent and utilities. Her home is part of a program that the Vail School District started in 2018. It provides teachers and staff with a tiny home.

It’s much smaller, but has all the amenities a regular home has like air conditioning, a kitchen and a living room.

Edris said the only difference is a smaller closet.

Everything, including a table in the home, was built by students in the building trades instruction class at Cienega High School. Each of the houses take about 9 to 12 months to build.

Edris’ house is one of the four they’ve built.

The district is hoping to attract teachers and staff with the tiny homes because some of their positions are experiencing a shortage. The district is putting staff and teachers on a wait list to live in them, but are prioritizing teachers.

“There are all other teachers and staff members who live around here which is really fun to have that community,” Edris said.

The school district said they’re going to be building about one home a year and are hoping to build a total of 24. They said they also provide other options for affordable housing including giving staff free land and utilities. Staff just have to buy the mobile home.

Edris is enjoying the benefits of being a apart of the district and has been a part of the Vail community for years, going to school there from kindergarten to high school.

“I really love what Vail stands for. It’s very inclusive and it’s a family,” she said.

It’s a family Edris will continue to be a part of, in a house built by students from the very same high school she went to.

“I think they did a really great job and they learned a lot of valuable skills that they can continue to build on for the rest of their lives,” she said.

Vail gets Tucson area's first big monsoon storm this year

The eastern edges of the Tucson metro area had the season’s first monsoon storm, with parts of the Vail area recording about 1½ inches of rainfall Tuesday night.

But the little bit of relief from the especially hot and dry summer here so far will be fleeting.

“Isolated storms have made it to the south and east side of Tucson,” the National Weather Service posted on Twitter shortly before 10 p.m. Tuesday.

But no rain was recorded at Tucson International Airport, site of the official rain gauge. And that means Tucson’s official rainfall for Tuesday: zilch.

In fact, the last time rain has fallen at the airport was May 19 (assuming it stays dry there overnight Wednesday).

To put the rainfall amounts close to 2 inches, some Vail residents were tweeting about into perspective, the total official precipitation for Tucson since Jan. 1 is 3.60 inches.

Tucson’s immediate future will be more about the heat and humidity than thunderstorms, Carl Cerniglia, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Tucson, said on Wednesday.

Cerniglia said Tuesday night’s rain “was probably the high point, for now.”

“It looks like we’re going to back off a bit on storm chances, and unfortunately that’s going to cause our temperatures to rise,” Cerniglia said. “We’re looking at being in another excessive heat warning in the Saturday-Sunday-Monday timeframe.”

He said storm activity is expected to ramp up next week.

While rain might be in the cards, Cerniglia said Tucsonans need to be mindful of the high temperatures in the coming days.

“We’ve had plenty of hikers rescued here, there and everywhere due to heat exhaustion,” Cerniglia said.

“This weekend we’re going to see similar temperatures to what we did in the previous heat episode, however humidity levels will be higher, which only makes the heat worse.”

An excessive heat warning is on tap for Pima County from Saturday through Monday evening. High temperatures could be about 112 degrees.

Should Vail be incorporated?

VAIL, Ariz. (KGUN) — For the first time in a decade, there’s a push to make Vail an incorporated town or city.It’s a move that could be beneficial, but also complicated for the quickly-growing suburban community southeast of Tucson.“A lot of people move out to Vail because they like the rural nature out here.

VAIL, Ariz. (KGUN) — For the first time in a decade, there’s a push to make Vail an incorporated town or city.

It’s a move that could be beneficial, but also complicated for the quickly-growing suburban community southeast of Tucson.

“A lot of people move out to Vail because they like the rural nature out here. And I love it too,” said Pima County Planning and Zoning Commission chair David Hook, who lives in Vail. “It’s a very rural. But when I was growing up in Phoenix, there were a lot of rural areas that are now cities and towns.”

Hook leads a committee called “Incorporate Vail, AZ?” The name, much like the idea itself, still has a question mark.

“It’s the voters of Vail that would make this decision,” Hook said. “It’s not my decision. It’s not the committee’s decision. We’ve got a great committee, great team. But ultimately it’s Vail that will make the decision.”

In fact, voters did make a decision in 2013. The same question was asked then, with about 55 percent of voters saying ‘No,’ keeping Vail unincorporated.

Now there’s a renewed incorporation effort.

Hook says if there’s enough support this fall, the goal would be to put the question on the ballot in Fall 2023.

While he says the end result doesn’t matter to him and he just wants voters to be informed, Hook personally believes the community would be better off incorporated, largely because it would have more autonomy.

“In 2013, I don’t think the temperature was right yet for people to vote to incorporate,” he recalled. “As Tucson continues to grow, Vail will either be their own community, or maybe get subsumed by Tucson. So we have to—Now’s the time to determine ‘Do we want to direct our own future, or do we want to be part of somebody else’s future?’”

As a city or town, Vail would also be entitled to money from the state of Arizona, such as a share of state sales tax revenue.

But it also opens the door to new taxes for those who live in Vail, like sales or property taxes.

“When you do become a town, there is a cost involved,” Hook said.

That cost goes toward establishing departments to handle utilities, roads and more.

Vail currently partners with Pima County Sheriff’s Department and Rincon Valley Fire. But as a town or city, it would have to decide whether to establish its own public safety departments.

“You have to have an attorney, you have to have an administration, you have to have a council, you have to have a mayor. All of those things. But that’s the bare minimum,” Hook advised.

For some, that could be a dealbreaker.

“People do not want another layer of government,” said Hook. “People don’t trust government. Government is a bad word today. And you tell people we’re gonna have another layer of government and people get scared about that.”

After already hosting hundreds in local meetings on the topic, there are six additional neighborhood discussions scheduled for September.
