A contest created to honor women veterans begins appropriately on Friday, Nov. 11, Veterans Day.

Rep. Terri Proud and the Arizona Department of Veterans Services are partners in the competition, which is to design a specialty license plate honoring women vets.

Rep. Proud has developed a website where Arizonans can submit their own design: http://azwomenvets.weebly.com">http://azwomenvets.weebly.com.

More information is available on the site, as well as on Facebook at AZ Women Vets.

The winning entry will become the new design for the Arizona Women Veteran's license plate.

The contest begins Nov. 11 and ends at midnight on Dec. 2.

All designs will be reviewed and selected by the Arizona Department of Veterans Services, which will announce the winner on Dec. 15. The selected winner will be presented with the first Women Veteran's License Plate once it is finalized by the Arizona Department of Transportation.

All proceeds from the Women Veteran's License Plate will go to help the homeless women veterans in the state of Arizona.

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.
