“Solar Power 101: A community education series on solar energy,” comes to Marana this Tuesday, Dec. 16.

The event, put on by Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the Pima County Public Library, runs from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Wheeler Taft Abbett Branch Library, 7800 N. Schisler Road.

Space is limited. People are asked to RSVP by Monday, Dec. 15, to tamarack.little@mail.house.gov, or by calling 881-3588.

Giffords, a member of the House Science and Technology Committee, is scheduled to speak about new solar tax credits and Arizona’s solar energy potential.

Trico’s SunWatts program is being detailed. Participants can save money on photovoltaic and solar hot water systems.

Marana officials Rebecca Kunsberg and John Huntley are presenting plans for a new green building program in the community. They’ll take comments and suggestions from the audience.

A Giffords staff member is presenting the basics of financing and installing residential solar energy systems. This is the 11th Solar Power 101 course offered through Giffords’ office.

“These forums have been held throughout Southeastern Arizona and typically attract a high level of interest from a wide range of people interested in learning more about solar energy,” a Giffords staff member said.

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.
