Commission or Board Application



PLANNING COMMISSION The Marana Planning Commission is a 7-member advisory body appointed by the Marana Town Council which makes recommendations to the Council on matters relating to zoning and land development, including the Marana General Plan (Marana's future vision for development) and applications for approval of rezoning cases, subdivision plats, development plans, and conditional uses. Scheduled meetings: 6:30 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of each month in the Council Chambers.

BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT The Marana Board of Adjustment is a 7-member quasi-judicial body of citizens whose main functions are (1) to hear and decide citizen appeals from the Zoning Administrator's interpretations of the Marana zoning regulations; and (2) to consider citizen requests for variances from Marana zoning regulations. Scheduled meetings: 2:00 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month in the Council Chambers.

PUBLIC SAFETY PERSONNEL RETIREMENT SYSTEM Responsibilities include attending Board meetings which occur according to need, but a minimum of two per year. Members make decisions on employee participation in the retirement system as well as approve retirements – normal as well as disability retirements. Meetings generally are held in the afternoon.

MARANA CITIZENS’ FORUM The Marana Citizens’ Forum was established as an alternative to citizen advisory commissions to provide a timely and effective means for discussing current and relevant issues which can result in recommendations to Council for policy or procedural changes. Forum delegates are appointed for two-year terms. At-large delegates are recruited when vacancies occur. Each Forum session, comprised of four meetings, meets twice annually.

PERSONNEL ACTION REVIEW BOARD This 5-member board was created to hear employee appeals of disciplinary action to terminate, reduce in pay, demote or suspend an employee without pay for more than 40 hours in a rolling 12-month period. Interested applicants should have some background in employee relations. Terms are 4 years.

MARANA MUNICIPAL PROPERTY CORPORATION The Marana Municipal Property Corporation was created to provide a vehicle through which the Town could finance the cost of acquiring, constructing, reconstructing or improving building, equipment and other real and personal properties suitable for use by and for leasing to the Town of Marana.

IMPORTANT LEGAL INFORMATION AND REQUIREMENTS FOR BOARD AND COMMISSION MEMBERS

Anyone appointed to a Commission or Board by the Town Council is a “Public Official” per Arizona law and is obligated to adhere to related standards of conduct and ethics. In particular, the Town of Marana needs to be aware of any actual or potential conflict of interest that could occur if you are appointed to the Planning Commission or Board of Adjustment or Public Safety Personnel Retirement System

List any financial or ownership interest you have or a relative has that will create a conflict of interest for you. This includes anything that you or a relative own or have a substantial financial stake in. There are several kinds of remote interests that do not create a conflict of interest and do not need to be included. For example, it is not a conflict of interest to participate in a decision about a corporation you or a relative own stock in, as long as you and/or your relatives own less than 3% of the shares of the corporation and get less than 5% of your and/or your relative’s total annual income from it. It is also generally not a conflict of interest to participate in decisions about nonprofit corporations you volunteer for, a government entity you or a relative work for, your tenant or landlord, or a class of people that includes you. A relative includes your spouse, child, parent, grandparent, sibling, their spouses, and your spouse’s parent, sibling or child. If you have questions about whether you or a relative have a financial or ownership interest that should be listed, please contact the Town Clerk or the Town Attorney.
