The Town of Oro Valley is accepting applications, now through Wednesday, April 30, for positions on one of the three Your Voice, Our Future project committees. The project’s goal is to have the community identify common values, issues and solutions. The committees will advise project staff and make recommendations on policy and goal proposals. The results will yield a community plan, often referred to as a “General Plan,” which will shape decisions about the Town’s future and quality of life.

The committees will focus on the following areas:

Development: land use, community design, cost of development, infrastructure, and transportation/circulation

Environment: open space and natural resources conservation, water resources, archaeological and historic resources, and environmental planning

Community: economic development, public facilities, services and safety, arts and culture, parks and recreation, and housing

Applications are easy to fill out and submit online at www.YourVoiceOV.com.

This plan cannot be built without Oro Valley residents. Your Voice Committee members will be tasked with turning the draft vision and guiding principles into a plan for action. The policy development and review portion of the Your Voice, Our Future project is expected to take approximately 12 months to complete. Each of the committees will meet approximately up to 10 times.

The draft vision and guiding principles are still available for comment on www.YourVoiceOV.com. The Oro Valley Planning & Zoning Commission will review them at a public meeting on April 10 at 6 p.m. in Council Chambers.

For more information about the Your Voice, Our Future project, call 229-4800 or email YourVoiceOV@orovalleyaz.gov.
