How we grow is how we live: Marana prepares to update the Land Development Code


Town of Marana is getting ready to update to the Land Development Code (LDC), and is looking for input from citizens and businesses. 

Marana is experiencing one of the fastest growth rates in Arizona. In the 1990s, the Town grew in population by more than 500 percent, then another 150 percent increase since 2000. The number of single-family building permits issued annually exceeds the number issued by any of the other municipalities in the Tucson metro area. In responding to that rapid growth, we want to make sure our quality of life is preserved and that planning makes the most of new opportunities and anticipates new challenges. Since 1993, we’ve steadily amended the LDC to assure our rules enable our expectations. Now it’s time for an update that clarifies those expectations for a new era and simplifies processes that align future plans with community goals.
