The Marana Parks and Recreation Department is starting its spring schedule for the popular Movie in the Park series. The monthly event returns in February, giving families the opportunity to explore parks around Town while enjoying a movie together.

Since 2007, Marana Parks and Recreation has offered these free events to the community and is excited about the new season. Movies will play the third Saturday every month through May and return in the fall after a summer of Dive-In Movies at the Marana Pool.

All features are rated G or PG and are open to the public. Moviegoers are encouraged to bring families, friends, picnics and pets to the park and enjoy these outdoor movies under the stars.

Spring schedule:

• Feb. 16: “Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax,” San Lucas Park at 6:30 p.m.

• March 16: “Madagascar 3,” Continental Ranch Neighborhood Park at 7 p.m.

• April 20: “Over the Hedge,” Ora Mae Harn Park at 7 p.m.

• May 18: “The Little Rascals,” Dove Mountain Park at 7:30 p.m.

These are free, fun family nights out. Grab your blankets or lawn chairs and enjoy the show. Additional information, including park addresses and event flyer, is available at www.marana.com.

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.
