Pima Community College’s Governing Board has hired a new firm to assist it in the search for a chancellor, and the chair of the Board says it is “marching forward” toward filling the post in July.

At a Special Meeting Tuesday night at Community Campus, the Board voted unanimously to hire the Association of Community College Trustees as an executive search consultant.

The Board also voted to terminate its contract with R.H. Perry & Associates, which the Board hired last year to aid in the chancellor search.

“It is the Board’s plan to have a new chancellor at work by July,” Board Chair Dr. Brenda B. Even said. “We are marching forward.”

Dr. Even and David Longoria, co-chairs of a citizens’ Search Advisory Committee, last week placed the search on hold after concerns were raised about one of two chancellor finalists named last month.

The motion to extend the search included a provision to continue with the existing Search Advisory Committee, which Dr. Even said has done a “fantastic” job.

More information on the search, including an email link to comment to the Board about the search, is available at http://www.pima.edu/about-pima/chancellor-search/.

The next regularly scheduled meeting of the Board is Wednesday, Feb. 27, at the El Pueblo Liberty Learning Center, 101 W. Irvington Road.

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.
