Catalina Community Services is up and running in its new location.

The move to 3535 East Hawser Street began Aug. 17 On Aug. 23, the agency opened to the public.

CCS shares the 5,000-square-foot facility with the Pima County Health Office. CCS has about 3,000 square feet, which is used for administration, a food bank and a clothing bank.

CCS and its 105 volunteers serve anywhere from 2,500 people to 3,000 people per month. About 280 families use the food bank each month.

Eight years ago, CCS began a building fund to help purchase a new facility. The last four years had been spent working with the county, planning the details of the current project.

To fund the current project, CCS partnered with Pima County for financial assistance. CCS was able to raise through its building fund about $500,000 for the $1.3 million facility.

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.
