Marana Police Officer Brad Clifford and Sgt. Will Hess are teaming with Pima County Deputy Sergeants Joe Knipp and Terry Staten to ride in the Police Unity Tour on May 9.

The tour is a 250-mile bicycle ride beginning in Portsmouth, Va. and ending at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington. Money raised brings about awareness for officers who have died in the line of duty and provide financial support for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

Donations for Team Marana can be made at http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/marana/police-unity-tour-viii-2013. The event’s official web site is http://www.policeunitytourviii.org/.

MPD and the Pima County Sheriff’s Department are hosting a Tip-A-Cop event at Texas Roadhouse (8450 N. Cracker Barrel Road) on March 1 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Officers assist wait staff and a portion of the proceeds goes toward funding for the Police Unity Tour.

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.
