A total of 26 people attended the two workshops. 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 workshop results. Attendees at the January 23rd workshop were primarily from the communities surrounding Downtown Marana. Attendees at the January 24th workshop were more wide spread throughout Marana, with the majority of residing in communities along Silverbell Road, such as Continental Ranch.

The workshop began with a short presentation informing attendees of the status of the General Plan Update, as well as the results from the Transportation Planning Exercise and Scenario Planning Exercise conducted during Workshop #2. Attendees then worked individually on a Policy Alternatives Exercise. This exercise involved a worksheet listing a series of alternative policies covering 7 General Plan topics:

  • Economic Development

  • Land Use

  • Environmental

  • Arts and Culture

  • Housing

  • Downtown

  • Transportation

Participants reviewed each policy and marked “Yes” if they like the policy, “No” if they do not like the policy, or “Revise” if they want to edit the policy. Participants also had the opportunity to recommend a policy not listed on the worksheet. The results of this exercise are detailed on the following pages.
