"Safe Treats" are returning to the streets of Oro Valley this Halloween, which is Sunday, Oct. 31.

"Trick-or-treating" is always anticipated by children, and always a concern for parents.

This year, the Oro Valley Police Department and the Oro Valley Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #53 have partnered again to bring "Safe Treats" to many neighborhoods beginning at dusk.

Oro Valley Police Explorers have spent hours loading more than 3,000 bags of candy which will be handed out to neighborhoods all over Oro Valley. Oro Valley Police officers and civilians, OVPD Explorer Post and OVPD citizen volunteers will be patrolling in fully marked police vehicles, handing out bags of candy.

"This is a time for the Oro Valley Police employees to mingle with the Oro Valley community as well as keep the streets safe," a release said.

Safety tips to protect children include:

• Wear light clothing that's short enough to prevent tripping;

• Make sure children can see well through their masks;

• Have an adult accompany children;

• Carry a flashlight / glow sticks;

• Stay within neighborhoods that you are familiar with;

• Examine all candy;

• Beware of pets and snakes.

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.
