CHAMBER CONNECTION A history of service

Chamber has helped community grow and prosper TUCSON METRO CHAMBER HISTORICAL TIMELINE For more than 120 years, the Tucson Metro Chamber has been a champion for local businesses and the community. Here is a look at the Chamber’s vital role in the growth of the region.

á 1890-99 The Chamber began as the Tucson Grocer’s Association in 1896, changing its name to the Tucson Traders’ National Protection Association and the Tucson Board of Trade in the next couple of years. The organization played a key role in establishing a post office and urging Pima County to improve roads to mining camps.

• The Chamber endorsed a Pima County bond election to raise funds for construction of the Mt. Lemmon Highway, the Casa Grande Highway and the Borderland Route. • The Chamber spearheaded a drive to establish the first municipal airport at the Tucson Rodeo Grounds.

á 1920-29 á 1900-09 Known as the Tucson Chamber of Commerce starting in 1902, the organization incorporated six years later. By that time, there were 105 individual members and 65 firm and corporation members. In 1907, Chairman Albert Steinfeld said the Chamber played an important role in Tucson’s population growth and in the multitude of construction projects in the area, resulting in an increase in property values.

á 1910-19 Transportation infrastructure was a priority during this time: • A Chamber committee worked on a project to build a gravel road from Tucson to Casa Grande. TUCSON METRO CHAMBER

AZ-TUC-CW-20 Design.indd 8

• Tackling legislative and regulatory issues such as taxation, highway financing, annexation and the continuation of an excise tax on foreign produced copper. • Developing industrial land sites. • Encouraging the state to loan the city $500,000 for 20 miles of street paving. • Advocating for an air base.

In 1924, the Chamber advocated for a government landing field that eventually became Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. In 1925, the Chamber sponsored the first “Fiesta de los Vaqueros” rodeo. That same year, the Chamber assisted in a survey about the need for a new tourist hotel. The project resulted in the construction of the El Conquistador Hotel. The Chamber’s building at 115 N. Stone was lost to a fire in May 1929.

á 1930-39 The Chamber became involved in several projects important to the growth of Tucson, including: • Successfully advocating for expanded air mail service.

á1940-49 The Chamber asked the telephone company to install a dial telephone system in Tucson after World War II. Also, in 1948, the Chamber brought together 15 business leaders to charter the Tucson Airport Authority.

á 1950-59 The Chamber focused on annexation, flood control, obtaining additional water supplies for the city and dust control. Also, in 1954, the Chamber helped plan a multi-purpose auditorium for the city, eventually selecting Randolph Park for its location. A year later, the Chamber moved into its new location at 420 W. Congress.

á 1990-99 á 1960-69 Priorities included agriculture, aviation, urban renewal and cleaning the environment. The Chamber’s Caballeros del Sol committee traveled to Mexico City to inaugurate Aero Mexico service between Tucson and Mexico. The Chamber also assisted in the opening and dedication of Tucson International Airport. In 1965, the mayor and city council announced the Chamber would be the primary agency to promote industrial development in the Tucson area.

á 1970-79 The Chamber changed its name to the Tucson Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce to reflect its increased service area and also decided to stop accepting funding from public entities. It also helped establish the Metropolitan Tucson Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Development Authority for Tucson’s Economy, which eventually became the Greater Tucson Economic Council.

á 1980-89 The Chamber became more politically active with the formation of the Committee for Responsive Government in 1980 and established its Candidate Evaluation Committee to interview candidates for public office. Also that year, the Chamber established the Leadership Tucson program, now known as Greater Tucson Leadership, and raised funds for its own building at St. Mary’s and Granada. About 500 people attended the ceremonies to dedicate the 10,000-square-foot location. In 1986, Gladys Sarlat, owner of Gladys Sarlat Public Relations, was elected the first female chair of the board of directors. Also, in 1988, the Chamber organized the first Arizona World Trade Fair, bringing together businesses and officials from around the world to encourage international business.

In 1992, the Chamber helped coordinate a trade delegation to the national assembly of Mexican Chambers of Commerce and exposition in Guadalajara, Mexico and received the U.S. Department of Commerce Outstanding international Services Award for facilitating international trade. A year later, the Chamber signed a historic cross-border statement of international support on the North American Free Trade agreement with chambers of commerce in Sonora, Mexico. Also that year, the Chamber formed the Business Education Partnership, which put volunteers from member businesses in the classroom to help prepare them for the world of work. In 1994, the Chamber participated in a delegation to inaugurate Arizona Airways service to Ciudad Obregon and open a Tucson economic development office in the Mexican city. In 1997, the Business Development Response Team was established to assist in retaining and expanding high-tech and high-paying jobs in Tucson.

á 2000-09 In 2001, the Tucson Center for Cultural Enrichment, a nonprofit foundation scholarship program, was established to develop a qualified workforce within the Tucson area by financially assisting deserving high school seniors to continue their education and establish a career in Tucson. In 2007, the Chamber was one of the first in the country to adopt an immigration policy based on extensive research and discussions with elected officials, the U.S. Border Patrol, numerous businesses and others affected by immigration issues.

á 2010-19 In 2011, the Chamber rebranded with a new logo and modified name, the “Tucson Metro Chamber.” 9

AZ-TUC-CW-20 Design.indd 9

The organization also launched several groundbreaking programs, including: • Developing the Business Bill of Rights (Joint Business Objectives) platform with Pima County and the City of Tucson to improve business-friendly service delivery. • Partnering with the University of Arizona Eller College on projects that assist member businesses in solving marketing challenges and creating business plans. • Working with Paragon Space Development Corporation to craft legislation, find a legislative sponsor and work to pass legislation opening up Arizona to commercial space travel. • Releasing findings of a survey conducted by a Chamber volunteer group, the Business Expansion and Retention Task Force, which detailed what local business said they like about doing business in Southern Arizona and what challenges they face as they try to grow their companies, expand their operations and create more jobs. • Creating the Community Quality Report Card, a data-driven summary of research from a Chamber volunteer group, to quantify and describe how the Tucson Metropolitan Statistical Area and Pima County are doing in key areas of community performance. • Raising $360,000 to fund the First Impressions Project, which features a section on Tucson Boulevard between Tucson International Airport and Valencia Road that was transformed into an art and cultural experience for visitors leaving the airport. • Spearheading a successful drive to secure nonstop air service between Tucson and New York City’s JFK International Airport with American Airlines through the $3 million raised by the Chamber’s Air Service Task Force. • Partnering with Tucson United School District to develop a highly successful, paid summer internship program for incoming high school seniors to address one of the biggest challenges facing local businesses—finding qualified workers. w tucsonchamber.org

IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD Diverse landscapes Housing choices abound for all buyers

The geographic diversity of the Tucson region is matched by the variety of housing available in and around the city. From large ranches on the edge of town to compact condos near downtown, there are options for everyone. Not only that, but the price per square foot is also likely much less than you’d find in many large metro areas around the country such as New York, Boston, Chicago and in much of California. “We’re just booming all over Tucson, and it’s been that way for about eight years,” said Jeff Murtaugh, CEO and designated broker of Realty Executives Tucson Elite. “We don’t see anything slowing it down in 2020. The prices are still extremely attractive versus other places in the country.” In recent years, the downtown area has boomed, thanks to a much-needed revitalization. Now there are shops, TUCSON METRO CHAMBER

AZ-TUC-CW-20 Design.indd 14

restaurants and residential developments, plus better transportation.

“They completely changed the taste and flavor of downtown with great bars, restaurants and an assortment of entertainment,” Murtaugh said. “It’s good to see what they’ve done and continue to do, as well as the plans for the future.” As part of this economic boost—primarily due to the Rio Nuevo project—there are condominium and townhome projects going up downtown with more on the way. Also, neighborhoods in or near downtown continue to benefit from the positive change: á Armory Park, which is on the National

Register of Historic Places, features more than a century’s worth of architectural styles. Near the center of Tucson’s art and culture epicenter, the area includes restaurants and a variety of activities, from a children’s museum to a senior center. Home prices range from about $250,000 to over $1 million.

á El Presidio Historic District: Includes a

variety of homes, with some that are large and architecturally relevant. Museums and other historical sites can be found in the area as well.

á Dunbar Spring: A small, diverse

neighborhood that has seen a recent surge of restoration inspired by the downtown improvements.

á Barrio Historico: This diverse neighborhood

that has a strong Hispanic influence is just south of the downtown area.

One of the most distinctive Tucson neighborhoods is Sam Hughes, which is just east of the University of Arizona and features nearby shops, restaurants and recreation areas. It has a mix of new construction and beautiful homes from the early to mid-1900s on its tree-lined streets. “Sam Hughes is one of my favorite areas of town to show,” Murtaugh said. “Every time I show a house there, it’s like having a history lesson.”

To the North, Catalina Foothills is a highly desirable neighborhood that’s next to the Santa Catalina 10 district, Mountains.

These homes are popular with people who relocate from other, more expensive areas of the U.S. who are used to paying much more per square foot, he said.

BUSINESS Small but mighty Tucson Metro Chamber celebrates small businesses

Small businesses are the backbone of a community, and the Tucson Metro Chamber’s annual Copper Cactus Awards are an ideal way to celebrate the accomplishments and successes of those businesses. In 2019, the Chamber recognized 55 finalists from about 400 nominations from locally owned and operated businesses for outstanding achievements in company

culture, workforce development, technological innovation, growth and leadership. A panel of 12 independent judges reviewed and scored the applications and the highest scores in each category were selected as finalists. There were 14 winners in all, as some categories have more than one winner based on the size of the business.

master planned community about 20 minutes south of Downtown Tucson. The development opened in 2001 and has more than 5,700 homes, 18,000 residents and various commercial and mixed-use spaces. When it is fully built out, the development will have more than 10,000 homes and 30,000 residents.

“More than 70% of our members are small businesses, and they have made enormous contributions to our community,” said Amber Smith, President & CEO of the Tucson Metro Chamber. “We appreciate the opportunity to recognize them for creating cultures of excellence and doing their part—through innovation, disruption and perseverance—to make the city the special place that it is.”

The company has more than 100 employees year-round, which increases by 60 during the summer because of seasonal hiring. The development is focused on its mission of “Creating a Better Life” for residents, with more than 220 events and special programs each year, 30 free fitness classes each week and an extensive Health and Wellness program.

Two businesses were recognized as finalists for the 2019 Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona Best Place to Work: Health Information Management Systems and Rancho Sahuarita Management Company. Nominees were judged on their work environment and the morale of their employees. The Chamber judges found that both companies placed a high value on employee engagement and have a family-oriented and family-centric focus.

The company takes a similar approach to its team through advancement opportunities, work flexibility, and the support of a team in a family-oriented atmosphere, said Rancho Sahuarita CEO Jeremy Sharpe.

Rancho Sahuarita develops, sells, leases and manages all aspects of the Rancho Sahuarita community, which is a thriving TUCSON METRO CHAMBER

“We believe that we won the award because at the heart of our company is family,” Sharpe said. “Our team members work hard and push themselves each day to meet objectives and goals, but can experience a flexibility and balance when life warrants the need. Those who work for the company are encouraged to get to know one another beyond the daily requirements of the job.”

Employees are encouraged to participate in family activities, whether it’s taking care of loved ones or seeing their kids’ school plays or athletic events. “This has led to excellent employee retention, a high internal promotion rate, and a culture under which employees thrive,” Sharpe said. For the Nextrio Innovation Award, nominees were judged based on their creative use of innovative processes or products to pioneer change in their industry. The two finalists were Modern Studios and Snell & Wilmer. Modern Studios is a state-of-the-art production facility based in Southern Arizona. It offers studio and equipment rentals, as well as a full range of production and creative services. The 12,000-square-foot facility is designed to make Tucson a national and regional hub for video and audio production, innovative creative commercials and film production. “Being selected as a Copper Cactus recipient has helped showcase our facilities to the Tucson business community and spread the word that we have a full-service production studio here in Tucson,” said Eric Larsen, general manager at Modern Studios. Here is a look at other Copper Cactus winners from 2019: á Arizona Complete Health Workforce

Development: Nominees were judged on workforce training, advancing, promoting people from within; or providing special job-training or exploration opportunities for individuals with special needs. Finalists were JobPath, Inc. and Old Pueblo Community Services.

á CopperPoint Small Business Leader of the

Year: Nominees were judged on productivity in relation to sales, creativity and innovation in the workplace and their activity in the community. The winner was Barry Chasse of Chasse Building Team.

á Cox Business Growth: Nominees were judged

on their gross revenue, employee growth and compensation expenditure growth. Finalists were Hotsy Industrial Systems and Pain Institute of Southern Arizona.

á Tucson Electric Power Charitable Non-Profit

“We’re always impressed with the entrepreneurial spirit, follow through and success business leaders have in our area,” Smith said. “It’s an honor for all of us at the Tucson Metro Chamber to recognize our region’s small businesses at the Copper Cactus Awards for the positive impact they make in our community.” w

SEASONS OF TUCSON RECREATION C’mon get active

Explore the great outdoors by cycling, hiking, climbing, riding or skiing

If you are an outdoor enthusiast, Tucson is the place for you! It’s almost always warm enough to enjoy activities such as biking, hiking and bird watching. After all, the average temperature is about 71 degrees and it’s usually sunny and dry. You can also escape the heat at one of five nearby mountain ranges. In fact, one mountain within an hour of Tucson offers something you might not expect in Southern Arizona—downhill skiing during the winter! Here is a look at some of the most popular outdoor activities in the Tucson area.

CYCLING It’s no wonder Tucson is considered a top cycling destination. One of the most famous bike trails in the country is the Chuck Huckelberry Loop, which links the Rillito, Santa Cruz and Pantano River Parks with the Julian Wash and Harrison Road Greenways. The Loop runs 120 miles on paved pathways and bike lanes through Tucson, South Tucson, Pima County, Marana and Oro Valley. The Loop connects restaurants, hotels,

TUCSON METRO CHAMBER

AZ-TUC-CW-20 Design.indd 20

Also consider the Arizona National Scenic Trail, which stretches 800 miles across Arizona from Mexico to Utah. You can travel through deserts, mountains, canyons, forests and communities on the trail, which crosses the area in the nearby Rincon Mountains, Rincon Valley, Redington Pass and the Santa Catalina Mountains.

parks, trails, shopping areas and sports and entertainment venues, and there are also dozens of public works of art along the route. For those who enjoy off-road biking, there are plenty of excellent trails nearby, including in nearby mountainous areas.

HIKING There are hundreds of trails, from easy to rugged, in the Tucson area. Some of the top local options include Saguaro National Park, Tucson Mountain Park and Roy P Drachman—Agua Caliente Regional Park. For example, there are more than 100 trails in the Tucson area at the moderate skill level that range from 0.7 to 59.4 miles and from 2,214 to 9,107 feet above sea level, according to AllTrails.com.

HORSEBACK RIDING Tucson has plenty of places for you to saddle up and enjoy a traditional Arizona activity. There are several private stables, some public ones and also opportunities at guest ranches and resorts. Beginners can get riding lessons for an enjoyable first time on the saddle, while more experienced riders might opt for longer group excursions. You’ll never forget experiencing the Sonoran Desert by horseback for a sunrise, sunset or moonlight ride.

ROCK CLIMBING

view the night sky, including directions for using binoculars with sky charts and a 32-inch telescope that is the largest public observing telescope in the state.

You can get out and enjoy wildlife while climbing in one of the mountain ranges that surround Tucson. There are opportunities for climbers of every skill level.

á Kitt Peak National Observatory

The observatory offers a four-hour program that helps participants find constellations and view the sky through research-class telescopes.

Mt. Lemmon is a popular spot, with more than 2,700 climbing routes. It reaches more than 9,000 feet above the Sonoran Desert in the nearby Santa Catalina Mountains. You can also climb unaided up the boulders in the foothills that surround Tucson, which can provide training for novices or practice for more experienced climbers. At Rocks & Ropes and The BLOC, experts teach rock climbing techniques at these indoor climbing gyms.

BIRDWATCHING There are 45 birding sites in the Tucson area where people have viewed more than 350 species of birds. The sites are in nearby natural areas as well as in the city itself. There is a map available that was developed by the Tucson Audubon Society and Tucson Parks and Recreation. Birders are encouraged to track their sightings, especially rare ones.

ASTRONOMY Tucson has about 350 nights of sky viewing a year, so it’s no surprise Southern Arizona is considered by some to be the “astronomy capital of the world.” Some of the best places to check out the skies include: á University of Arizona

Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter You can participate in a five-hour program at the center to learn the best way to 21

AZ-TUC-CW-20 Design.indd 21

DOWNHILL SKIING You can get your winter kicks at the Coronado National Forest, about a half-hour north of Tucson, where Mt. Lemmon Ski Valley—the southernmost ski resort in the country— offers 21 runs and three lifts. The ski area covers more than 200 acres and offers trails for every skill level. You can stay in nearby Summerhaven if you’d like to make a weekend of it.

CAVE EXPLORING Another possibly unexpected activity in the Tucson area is exploring caverns and caves. There are several in the Tucson area, including multiple ones at Colossal Cave Mountain Park near Vail and Kartchner Caverns State Park. w tucsonchamber.org

DISCOVER AMPHI: Excellence Amphitheater Public Schools is celebrating 125 years of excellence, dating back to 1893 when the District was founded in a five-room adobe schoolhouse and named after the five mountain ranges that surround the city of Tucson like a “beautiful natural amphitheater.” Today we have grown to 21 schools, nearly 14,000 students, and more than 2,000 employees. We offer a comprehensive and demanding curriculum aligned with current state standards and teach the skills students need for the future, including creativity, innovation, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration. We know that educating a child is not a one-size-fits-all undertaking.

in Education

Career and work-based learning through Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses • Outstanding athletic programs and extracurricular activities • Preschool instruction to build a solid foundation for learning during ages 3-5 Our district is fortunate to enjoy wonderful support from the Tucson community. These connections are a critical role in supporting the work in the classroom and we have developed many partnerships and programs that enhance our academic offerings. We also offer a great working environment and have a legacy of strong Amphi traditions. We are proud of our dedicated support staff, teachers, and administrators that are committed to student learning and excellence in education. Most importantly, what sets our district apart is “The Amphi Family” – a climate and culture built, like any family, on collaboration, caring, and a child-centered environment.

More ways to explore! CAVES AND CAVERNS You can check out a couple of notable natural wonders within an hour of Tucson: á Colossal Cave Mountain Park, which is about a

half-hour southeast in Vail, includes hiking, biking, horseback riding and plenty of cave exploring for different skill levels.

á Kartchner Caverns State Park, about an hour

southeast in Benson, offers guided tours each day. There are plenty of hiking trails in the area, as well as opportunities to view wildlife.

WINE TRAILS á The Sonoita/Elgin Wine Trail is about an hour

southeast, in an area ideal for growing grapes that is a cool break from the usual intense heat in other areas of the state. There are plenty of opportunities to explore the wilderness while hiking or biking as well.

á The Willcox Wine Country is about an hour and a half

east and features many tasting rooms and multiple festivals throughout the year.

Travel to mines, orchards, a ballpark, a beach or celebrate Christmas year-round in nearby towns Tucson has plenty to offer, but sometimes a day trip out of town is just what you need to shake things up a bit. Whether you want to pick your own peaches and apples, check out an art show in one of the coolest small towns in the country or visit the ocean in Mexico, there are plenty of quick escapes near Tucson.

BISBEE When a small town has one of the country’s oldest ballparks, a vibrant arts and culture community and an area notoriously known as Brewery Gulch, you know it’s worth a look. Bisbee was once the largest community between St. Louis and San Francisco for one main reason—mining. Copper ore was discovered in the Mule Mountains in 1877 and the area eventually produced nearly 3 million ounces of gold, 8 billion pounds of copper and some silver, lead and zinc. Today, the town 95 miles southeast from Tucson recognizes its one-time status as one of the richest mineral sites in the world while showcasing its creative community,

entertainment and dining options and natural beauty. Each year, the town welcomes visitors for the Bisbee Pride Festival and Bisbee 1000, along with the monthly Bisbee After Five artwalk and weekly farmers market. You can enjoy plenty of coffee shops, cafes, restaurants and saloons, including ones that retain their historical character. There are also plenty of shops and galleries to browse.

31 AZ-TUC-CW-20 Design.indd 31

If you’re interested in area history, visit the Smithsonian-affiliated Bisbee Mining and Historical Museum, which has played host to more than a half-million visitors and offers the world-renowned Queen Mine Tour. You can also check out the Victorian architecture, enjoy the annual Historic Home Tour, visit vintage Warren Ballpark, and see the state’s first golf course (Turquoise Valley) and community library (Copper Queen). › tucsonchamber.org

TUBAC

WILLCOX

Your day will fly by when you visit this one-of-a-kind destination that has a strong arts community and rich history, just 45 miles south of Tucson.

If you want to take a day to pick fruit and enjoy some fresh homemade treats, travel about an hour and a half east on Interstate 10 to Willcox, where Apple Annie’s Orchard is a must-visit stop.

Tubac features more than 100 shops and world-glass galleries on streets that are populated with comfortable bed and breakfasts, and locally owned restaurants and bars. Check out the sculpture, photography and ceramics and shop the crafts, antiques and regional fashion.

The elevation of the Sulphur Springs Valley makes it ideal for this family farming operation to grow fruits and vegetables, including pumpkins, sweet corn, melons and many vegetables.

The event highlight is the Tubac Festival of the Arts, the longest running arts festival in Southern Arizona that takes place each February. There are associated events and special meals all around town during the event. Other highlights include the Art Walk in March, Anza Days in October and Art Experience in November.

The pick-your-own season for apples, peaches and pears begins in July—look to Apple Annie’s Orchard’s social media for daily updates or call ahead to (520) 3822084. During harvest season you can also purchase already picked produce. In the fall there is a Fall Pumpkin Celebration, a pumpkin patch and a 20-acre corn maze.

Tubac was established as a Spanish Presidio in 1752, and you can check out local artists’ studios near what used to be the parade grounds. Also, take in the town’s history at the Tubac Presidio State Historic Park in Old Town.
