Published on February 09, 2024


ORO VALLEY, Ariz. (Feb. 8, 2024) – The Town of Oro Valley invites residents to help shape the future of the Vistoso Trails Nature Preserve by providing your input on the new VTNP Master Plan Prioritization survey.

This survey asks the community to identify the most critical projects for near and long-term improvements by providing a curated list of projects and asking the pivotal question: What do you feel are the most important?

"We are looking to our residents to help inform our strategy and ensure that the Vistoso Trails Nature Preserve continues to be a cherished asset for our community," said Parks and Recreation Director Rosalyn Epting, who emphasized the importance of community engagement in this process. "While some of these projects are very large and would likely take multiple years to complete due to limited funding, we are hopeful we can create a phased approach that reflects the values and priorities of our residents."

Let your voice be heard and join us in shaping the future of this invaluable natural resource by taking the survey today!

Participation in the survey is a unique opportunity for residents to actively contribute to the enhancement of the Vistoso Trails Nature Preserve, fostering a sense of community ownership and shared responsibility.
