What we've been up to...

Business Summit

Pima Community College, in partnership with the City of Tucson Economic Initiatives, is a key partner for Thrive in the 05 efforts.  Pima Community College brings innovative Workforce & Economic Development solutions and opportunities to the Thrive in the 05 area through outreach, education and training opportunities for local businesses and residents in the area.

Recent Engagement:  Thrive in the 05 Business Forum on the topic of “Building on the Area’s History” held on September 9, 2019 at PCC Downtown Campus.  This event was co-sponsored by City of Tucson Economic Initiatives, Pima Community College Workforce Development, and Tucson Metro Chamber of Commerce.  Nearly 40 local business owners and key stakeholders attended and learned about the Oracle Road / Miracle Mile area’s rich history and how to build on the area's past to enhance its identity and help ensure a dynamic future.  The presentation featured historic photos and maps and traced the history from the original northern automotive gateway to Tucson to its present status as the Miracle Mile Historic District.

Wait. What is THRIVE in the 05?

Building on over a decade of work on projects like the Oracle Area Revitalization Plan (OARP), The Oracle Project (TOP), and the Oracle Area Task Force, three current initiatives are teaming up to build community and invest resources in this area. Together, these projects are called THRIVE in the 05! 

  1. Community-Based Crime Reduction is a comprehensive public safety initiative which seeks to work with the community to identify and address drivers of crime to help build sustainable communities of opportunity. Grant funded from the US Department of Justice (DOJ) through the Tucson based ASU School of Social Work.
  2. Choice Neighborhoods leverages significant public and private dollars to support locally driven strategies that address struggling neighborhoods with distressed public or HUD-assisted housing through a comprehensive approach to neighborhood transformation. Grant funded from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the City of Tucson's Housing and Community Development Department (HCD).
  3. Pima Community College in partnership with City of Tucson's Economic Initiatives Office is working to connect local residents and businesses to job training, business incentives, and resources. This collaboration on economic and workforce development inclusion arose through the 2018 Daniel Rose Fellowship and Oracle Area Task Force.
This monthly newsletter will provide you with important updates on the projects, invitations to meetings, and opportunities to provide feedback and drive the change you want to see in your neighborhoods. Read more about the effort in the Arizona Daily Star.
