Town of Oro Valley General Plan Land Use Map(PDF, 5MB)

The Land Use Map shows the proposed general uses of land within Oro Valley. It is the official Oro Valley policy on how land is distributed or set aside for different uses. The Land Use Map in this Plan was revised from the previous version with help from the Your Voice, Our Future Development Committee. Most of the designations on the map remain the same. During the map revision process, residents recommended changes to the map be handled through the plan amendment process, due to the robust public engagement involved in a formal application. As such, it is anticipated that changes to the map will occur during the lifespan of this Plan.
