Marana has always been a town on the move. Now, more than ever, it’s the place where people want to move.
According to statistics compiled by Bright Future Real Estate Research, more homes were constructed in Marana during the first six months of the year than anywhere else in the region. A remarkable 33.5 percent of the single-family residence permits issued from January to the end of June were for Marana homes. The Town granted 404 permits in those six months, almost topping the 526 it issued all last year. Things kept growing in July, when 74 permits were pulled.
The Dove Mountain/Tangerine Road area has been the busiest for single family residence permit activity. With a new project by Pulte Homes and a Del Webb development coming online in the near future, this area likely will continue its steady pace.
While increased housing permits aren’t the only sign of an improved economy, they are a good start. Commerce follows rooftops and people who are interested in doing business throughout the community are contacting staff more and more often.
Staff tackled several key infrastructure projects (wastewater system acquisition, Twin Peaks Interchange construction and Silverbell and Thornydale road improvements, to name a few) that put the Town in prime condition for well-planned growth.
The Town remains committed to fostering a high quality of life for residents. More people are moving here and our Town Council and staff are working with commercial interests to diversify the community’s job base so people can live and work in Marana.
Council and staff are proud to serve Marana and pleased that so many people are choosing to call it home.
