The roads are a disaster here. The buildings look run down. There is graffiti everywhere. Tucson needs a facelift. It's no wonder why big employers skip right over this town and set up shop in Phoenix. Overall Phoenix metro looks fresh and has great roads. Why aren't we getting our fair share of dollars to fix this place up down here? Tucson has some serious potential!
What is going on with the repair of potholes? I have seen no evidence they are being repaired. You have several huge potholes on Euclid between University and Speedway in the northbound lanes - unsure about the southbound lanes. With all the students who ride bikes there someone is going to hit one and go flying into traffic! You also have BIG holes on Broadway in the downtown area that should be filled in - even while they are trying to get it fixed somewhat in time for the Gem Show - they have become intolerable and you are going to start having claims for wheel and tire damage.
