On January 5, 2013, a series of BEYOND events will be held throughout Pima County to remember those who lost their lives in the January 8, 2011 shootings, as well as those whose lives have been changed forever. BEYOND was launched by the Zimmerman family in honor of their son Gabe Zimmerman, who lost his life that day.

The Town of Oro Valley will participate in BEYOND by hosting two family-friendly hikes in Catalina State Park on Saturday, January 5, 2013 at 8:30 a.m. Hikers may choose from the Canyon Loop Trail (3-mile loop) or the Sutherland Trail to Sutherland Wash (5.2 miles round-trip). Both hikes have minimal elevation gain. Participants should meet at the Chase Bank parking lot across from the Catalina State Park entrance to receive a wristband good for discounted admission into the park.

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.
