On Tuesday, Sept. 14, at 12 p.m., Oro Valley police responded to the area near the bridge over the Cañada del Oro Wash at Pusch View Lane where a town employee reported seeing graffiti. Once there, the officer noted numerous spray painted words, including profanities, on areas under the bridge. The officer took evidence photos of the graffiti. The town employee estimated the cost to remove the graffiti at $1,500 to $2,000. No arrests were made.

On Monday, Sept. 13, at 11 p.m., Oro Valley police responded to the area of Red Creek Drive near Red Creek Place following a call about possible gunshots. An officer responding to the call found the remains of a plastic bottle and aluminum foil lying in the street. The officer noted in a report that the items appeared to be the remnants of a homemade explosive. While inspecting the items, the officer heard the squeal of vehicle tires and saw a small car approach the area rapidly. The officer stopped the car and spoke with two juvenile boys inside. The officer asked the youths if they knew anything about the exploded items. They confirmed to the officer that they had blown up the bottle. Both boys were placed under arrest for misconduct involving a simulated explosive device and taken to Pima County Juvenile Detention Center.

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.
