    Pima County officials will unveil a sign formally dedicating a northwest Tucson park in honor of former Pima County District 1 Supervisor Ann Day, who died in a traffic collision May 7. The ceremony begins at 9 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 24, at Ann Day Community Park, 7601 N. Mona Lisa Road, located at the southwest corner of Magee and Mona Lisa Roads.

    Ann DayDistrict 3 Supervisor Sharon Bronson, Chair of the Board of Supervisors, will speak along with neighborhood representatives Diana Boros, Casas Adobes West 2 Neighborhood Coalition; Donna Heidinger, La Canada/Magee Neighborhood Association; and Betsy Sandlin, Romero Neighborhood.

    On June 7, the Pima County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved renaming Northwest Community Park in Day’s honor. She represented District 1 for three terms, from 2001 to 2012. She also served in the Arizona Senate for 10 years.

    During Day’s tenure on the Board, she strongly supported Pima County parks and had significant involvement with creating the Northwest Community Park. She vigorously advocated for funding the dog park and the ramadas located at this facility. Securing funding for the covered playground equipment was one of her last actions while serving on the Board.
