Introducing our New Executive Director: Dawn Tucker


Dear F3 Supporter,

The F3 Board of Directors is excited to announce that Dawn Tucker will be our next Executive Director.  She will start her new job August 1st.   Dawn currently serves on the F3 board, regularly attends and speaks at City Council meetings, has thoroughly studied the transact zoning code, the regional planning code, and Prop 207.  She passionately advocates for policy changes that will make and keep Flagstaff more livable.  This includes policies related to land use and growth, historic preservation, economic prosperity, affordable housing and other livability concerns in neighbors like the Southside where trash, noise, parking and street safety are concerns.  We are thrilled she will be our next Executive Director.

Dawn was raised in the Southside, lives in the Southside today, and is fairly well-known in town for saving Agnes’s house from The Hub property.  Agnes was her babysitter and that historic house would have been demolished if Dawn didn’t have it moved to her property.

Before stepping down from teaching at the end of this school year, Dawn had spent the past six years teaching English, Literature, Speech and Debate, Drama, and Poetry at three Arizona schools.  She founded and is the current Executive Director of the non-profit Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival.   Dawn has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Wisconsin and a Master of Letters in Shakespeare and Renaissance Literature from Mary Baldwin University in partnership with The American Shakespeare Center.

You will be hearing more from Dawn about F3 projects that will change city policies to make Flagstaff more livable.

Please join us in welcoming her:
