Tucson’s Sun Tran transit service plans to launch rush-hour bus routes from Oro Valley to downtown and from Oro Valley to Raytheon near Tucson International Airport.

The transit service recently held an open house in Oro Valley to answer questions and gather public input concerning the bus routes.

About 40 people attended the event, according a Sun Tran spokesperson.

Sun Tran officials intend to begin serving Oro Valley in February 2009.

The express routes would likely make three stops each in Oro Valley en route to downtown and Raytheon.

One likely pick-up point is the planned park and ride Oro Valley officials have in store for Ranch Vistoso.

Both routes would run three morning and three evening services, Monday through Friday.

Sun Tran and Regional Transportation Authority officials surveyed nearly 800 people on the planned express routes before the meeting.

They plan to analyze the surveys to gauge support of the planned service and find additional pick-up points.

They plan to share the survey results with town officials in the coming weeks.

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.
