Shaping our communities for the future by looking at the past

When we think of Tucson and the northwest area, do we think the area has developed from the future or do we think the area has developed from the past?

If we think from the future, creative ideas, visions, success and a thriving environment can follow. If we think from the past, we focus on values of stability, community, sharing and gathering along with a pioneering spirit. Are all of these qualities shaping the present and future of northwest Pima County real estate? 

If we go back 100 years, who was migrating to the area? What did the terrain look like? After speaking with Bruce Dinges, editor of the Arizona Historical Society’s publication, The Journal of Arizona, it is my understanding that Tucson and the area was attracting a small group of World War I veterans.
