Widows, widowers and individuals with disabilities who meet certain income thresholds may qualify for a property tax exemption on their primary residence within Pima County.

The application period runs from the first Monday in January until March 1.

“This exemption is really quite popular and provides some financial relief for folks out there who are dealing with challenges in their lives,” said Pima County Assessor Bill Staples.

Jennifer Walker, a senior advocate with the nonprofit Pima Council on Aging, advertises the program to 16,000 newsletter subscribers, noting just this month a client said the assistance helps her to stay in her house.

The application for the exemption must be filed in person the first time. Once qualified, the applicant is not required to file an annual affidavit unless there is a change to the original qualification requirement.

For both exemptions, applicants must have property with a full cash value that does not exceed $244,690, or an assessed value of $24,469.

For other criteria, please visit http://www.asr.pima.gov/links/exemptions.aspx or call 724- 7500.

Additionally, informational sessions for new and existing applicants will be held at library branches throughout the community.

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.
