Free season passes were issued by the Town of Marana on Friday, thanks to a donation.

The Town of Marana and the Foothills Optimist Club partnered with the community to provide 200 free season pool passes for low-income families in the area.

The passes were distributed to families at the Ora Mae Harn Park in Marana.

The passes were purchased through a $2,000 donation. TriSports Racing and TriSports.com also contributed toward the $2,000 donation from the club.

The contribution provides summer-long passes to qualifying children. This is the seventh year the club has supported the program, raising its overall contribution to $14,000.

The Town passed out 140 total passes last week.

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.
