TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Oro Valley is making it easier for the community to stay connected.

The town launched its first mobile app to serve as a convenient gateway to the Oro Valley website for Oro Valley news, events, contact information and online services.

“The OV App is part of Oro Valley’s commitment to improve access to accurate, timely and relevant town information,” Town Manager Greg Caton said. “Additionally, developing the app in-house saved the town approximately $10,000 in start-up costs and an additional $2,500 in annual maintenance fees.”

Some of the most requested information on the town website is linked on the app, including:

· Aquatic Center fees, hours and rental information

· Parks, archery range, hiking, biking and trails

· Department phone numbers, email and web links

· Links to online services including bill payment, permit search, and Town Council meetings

· Interactive maps of parcels, zoning, street maintenance, town services, parks and trails

For more information, visit the OV App page on the town’s website.

Oro Valley launched its new website, also developed in house, one year ago. It is a “responsive” site, meaning the development allows it to be viewed on any computer or mobile device.

The Oro Valley Police Department also implemented a free mobile app, called MyPD, to send the public notifications and important information related to crime, wanted persons and events. It will also serve as another avenue for residents to submit tips to the department in ongoing investigations. Other aspects of the app include information from FEMA, the National Weather Service and the National Terror Advisory System.

Only four police departments in Arizona have a similar app. MyPD can be downloaded through iTunes or Google Play.
