TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Oro Valley is currently conducting an update to the Naranja Park master plan, first introduced in 2002, with the programming and concept design report being completed in 2007. According to a recent release from Oro Valley officials, an update is needed due to changed demographics and a different financial landscape and the needs of the residents. This process was approved in early 2014, and should be complete by November.

Officials with the Parks and Recreation Department have been asking residents their opinion on parks in the Oro Valley area, Naranja Park in particular, this was done via open houses and informational booths. According to the release residents are also able to comment during the 'Put me in coach' event on August 23.

Information about the project and comment forms are available on the Oro Valley website -http://www.orovalleyaz.gov/parksandrec
