The second and final set of open houses for the Make Marana 2040 General Plan were held on June 19 and 20, 2019 at 6:00 PM. The June 19th open houses was held at the Marana Municipal Complex and the open house on the 20th was held at the Wheeler Taft Abbett Sr. Library. The objectives for this set of open houses were to:
Provide an update on the General Plan process and themes;
Present some of the major updates from the 2010 General Plan; and
Receive feedback on the draft goals and policies.
A total of 60 people attended the two open houses. Upon arriving, each attendee was asked to identify on a map, generally, where they live or work in Marana. This was done to see what areas of the town were represented in the open house. Attendees at the June 19th open house were widespread, but primarily reside in the area within and surrounding Downtown, including the Gladden Farms and San Lucas subdivisions. Attendees at the June 20th open house were mostly from communities along Silverbell Road, such as Continental Ranch.
The open house began with a short presentation informing attendees of the status of the General Plan Update, the organization of the General Plan, and the results from the first three workshops, and some of the important updates from the 2010 General Plan. After the presentation, the meeting concluded with an open house format in which attendees could view banners related to the three General Plan themes, as well as the draft Future Land Use Map, Circulation Map, and goals and policies. Comment cards were made available for any comments that attendees had throughout the open house.
