Marana Plans to Abandon Public Access TOMORROW

May 20, 2009


Late this afternoon the Town of Marana amended tomorrows Council Agenda to include the abandonment of the Recorded Public Easement which run through the Saguaro Ranch Development in the Consent Agenda. Wherein A single motion will approve the abandonment of this public access.

It has been one day since the Marana Council elections - and contrary to what the Town told the public following the February 03, Marana Town Council Meeting, it appears now that the elections are over, the Town Council has decided to abandon the recorded public easement in order to protect Mr. Phinny, by providing him the privacy and exclusivity his development lacks at the expense of the public's access to the Tortolita's.

It is crucial that we prevent this "give away" of valuable public access and recreational resources from being given solely to Mr. Phinny and his development. Public access to the Tortolita's and the Tortolita Mountain County Park and open spaces must be REPRESENTED and PROTECTED! The public owes no debt to this development!

Please join us in attending TOMORROW'S Marana Council Meeting and voce your opposition to this wrongful abandonment of valuable public recreational resources! Marana Council Meeting are held at the Marana Municipal Center: 11555 W. Civic Center Drive, Marana, Arizona, and begin at 7:00 PM. Please plan on attending!

The meeting is tomorrow- Thursday, May 21, at 7:00 PM.
