Oro Valley accepting applications for committee members

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

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.

A goal of the project is to have community members identify common values, issues and solutions. The committees will advise project staff and make recommendations on policy and goal proposals. Results from the committees will be used to devise a 'General Plan' for the city, which will shape decisions about its future and quality of life.

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

Residents from all walks of life are needed. Applications are easy to fill out and submit online at www.YourVoiceOV.com.

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 6-10 times during that period.

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, please call (520) 229-4800 or email YourVoiceOV@orovalleyaz.gov.
