During its Shop Oro Valley Holiday Campaign, which ran Nov. 1 to Jan. 2, Oro Valley residents and visitors who spent $25 or more at an Oro Valley business were eligible to participate in a weekly gift card drawing, sponsored by more than 25 Oro Valley businesses. Due to the generosity of our participating businesses, the town was able to award 40 prizes, such as gift cards and free services.

The campaign culminated in a grand prize drawing for a $500 Oro Valley Marketplace Gift Card. Oro Valley resident Diane Dill is the grand prize winner.

“During the eight-week campaign, 962 receipts were turned in, for a total of $54,611.40 spent at Oro Valley businesses,” said Oro Valley Mayor Satish Hiremath. “We appreciate our residents and visitors shopping in Oro Valley during the holiday season, and we encourage them to shop locally throughout the year. There is a direct investment in our quality of life when we shop locally because it supports infrastructure, public safety and parks.”

The successful Shop Oro Valley Campaign is the result of a partnership with the Greater Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Explorer Newspaper.

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.
