N4T Investigators: Open meetings complaint filed with Attorney General for Reid Park Zoo expansion – KVOA Tucson News

The City of Tucson and Reid Park Zoo are moving full steam ahead on an expansion of the Zoo into the public park.

The complaint alleges an open meetings violation, claiming the City did not properly advertise the planned expansion to voters going all the way back to 2017.

Wendy Sampson filed the complaint to the Attorney General in December.

The zoo expansion was approved by voters at the Nov. 7, 2017 election after being scheduled by the City Council at an August meeting that year.

Wendy Sampson said the City will be having a meeting with her and others concerned about the expansion on Tuesday.
