Marana News: Residential housing market roaring back to life on northwest side

Article by Brad Allis

The residential housing market is booming on Tucson’s north side, with Marana and Oro Valley leading the way.

The town of Marana sits at the top of new single-family residential permits. The town issued 85 permits in May. Marana Mayor Ed Honea said that was the highest number in at least three years.

“We’re growing, people,” Honea said during the town’s groundbreaking ceremony for their new police facility. The town’s growth was a major reason they pursued the construction of a new police station.
