The Arizona Department of Transportation is hosting a major conference offering business tips and tools to owners of companies that qualify under ADOT’s Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program.

 

The DBE Central Arizona Conference, which is the largest DBE conference in Arizona, will feature 16 workshops, networking activities and one-on-one time with experts in areas such as banking, insurance and bonding, marketing and consulting to provide strategies DBE business owners can use to enhance their businesses.

 

The workshops are designed to engage women-owned, minority-owned, and socially and economically disadvantaged businesses involved in the highway construction industry. This event will provide businesses with the necessary tools to compete for contracting opportunities on Federal-aid transportation projects. Ultimately, the conference will help continue to build a framework for increased opportunities for contracting on transportation-related design and construction projects.

 

Although this conference is geared toward DBE businesses, this event is open to all small and large businesses, public agencies, vendors and community partners with an interest in the transportation industry.

 

The conference will be held in Phoenix at the Desert Willow Conference Center on Sept. 19.

 

Businesses interested in attending the conference can register online at http://centralarizonaconference.eventbrite.com/.

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.
