Students at nine Oro Valley schools have additional supplies this school year thanks to an annual program offered by a local law enforcement organization.

Each year, the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 53 donates $250 to each of the nine schools within Oro Valley to be used for school supplies. The Oro Valley Target store  contributes an additional $250 per school.

This year’s shopping event took place Sept. 7.

Both private and public schools receive supplies. Private schools are BASIS Charter School, Casas Christian School, Immaculate Heart School and Pusch Ridge Christian Academy.

Public schools are Wilson K-8, Copper Creek and Painted Sky elementary, and Canyon Del Oro and Ironwood Ridge high schools.

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.
