Oro Valley to hold informational open house for Prop 454: Naranja Park Bond

Naranja Park Sign

On Wednesday, September 13, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., the Town of Oro Valley will host an informational open house on Prop 454: Naranja Park Bond. The open house, which will be held in Town Hall Council Chambers (11000 N. La Cañada Drive), will begin with an overview of the project, followed by three discussion stations where members of the public can talk to executive staff about project costs, financing, amenities, construction, impact to taxpayers and voter information.

September 6, 2017

Members of the public who are unable to attend the open house but would like to learn more about Prop 454 are invited to visit us online at www.orovalleyaz.gov and click on the Naranja Park Bond banner, or email us at ask@orovalleyaz.gov.

On November 7, 2017, Oro Valley voters will decide on Prop 454, which authorizes the issuance and sale of $17 million in general obligation bonds to fund improvements at Naranja Park, 810 W. Naranja Drive. The bonds would be repaid through a secondary property tax, which sunsets after 20 years. By law, Town Council cannot impose a property tax—only the voters can.

BACKGROUND
Prop 454 – The 2017 Naranja Park Bond Project – is a partial build-out of the 2015 Council-approved Naranja Park Master Plan, and includes only the elements that the community and park user groups have identified as being in greatest demand. The community-driven plan includes: three multi-sport fields, a four-field baseball/softball complex, lighting, restrooms, shade structures, earthwork and mass grading, utility systems, parking lots, buildings and structures, pedestrian walkways, landscape and irrigation, site furnishings, a playground and an improved roadway and multi-use path from Naranja Drive to Tangerine Road.

Based on current calculations, the estimated property tax rate would be $0.22/$100 of assessed valuation. This works out to approximately $4.50 per month to an average homeowner with a home valued at $250,000. For commercial property valued at $1.2 million, that’s about $39.35 per month. The property tax would sunset after 20 years.
