Nominations are due Jan. 15 for the annual Citizen of the Year award, presented by the Rotary Club of Oro Valley.

Anyone in Oro Valley is welcome and encouraged to nominate a person they believe to be a worthy recipient. Nomination forms may be downloaded from the club’s website, http://www.orovalleyrotary.org">www.orovalleyrotary.org, or obtained from any member of the Oro Valley Rotary Club.

Oro Valley Rotary established the Citizen of the Year award to “recognize an individual whose life demonstrates commitment to the Rotary ideals of Service above Self and high ethical standards,” a release said.

Last February, Oro Valley Rotary honored Jay Knapp, an 81-year-old retired real estate broker who volunteers every week at the pediatric intensive care unit at Tucson Medical Center, performing magic tricks for children.

Oro Valley Rotary’s second annual Citizen of the Year Gala is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 26.

A portion of the proceeds from the award gala go to a charity of the honoree’s choice. Other proceeds support the charitable activities of the Oro Valley Rotary Foundation.

The Rotary Club of Oro Valley Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
