During the annual awards breakfast, the Marana Chamber of Commerce took time to honor longtime members and recognized small, mid-size and large businesses in the area.

The luncheon was held at the Highlands at Dove Mountain on Aug. 21. The annual event is held to honor local business owners, name new board members and show how the chamber continues to benefit the community year after year.

Winning the Small Business of the Year award was Mathnasium of Marana. Mathnasium has been working during the last four years to teach hundreds of children and adults realize they can learn math.

Mathnasium sponsors a Little League team each year and contributes to many other local charities and fundraisers, such as the Marana Food Bank and the Marana Broncos 5K run. It hosts the TriMathlon at their center each year, and also offer scholarships to the schools in the Marana Unified School District.

Winning the Mid-Size Business of the Year award was Spectrum Ina Road Auto Collision. Spectrum Ina Road Auto Collision is a family-owned, customer-oriented company focused on service and innovative technology.  The company is also dedicated to giving back to the community, according to the nomination.

Partnering with local high schools, Spectrum owner Javier Avalos gives students a “real life” glimpse of the dangers of texting or drinking while driving by showing them actual automobiles that have been destroyed in texting- or alcohol-related accidents.

Winning the Large Business of the Year award was Rosemont Copper. Since 2007, Rosemont Copper has spent $250 million across the Southern Arizona region in contributions, donations, sponsorships, and business interests. Rosemont Copper is one of the primary sponsors of the Town of Marana’s annual State of the Town event, along with sponsoring many other local programs.

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.
