What is the General Plan?

The General Plan is a community-driven, 10-year plan that includes goals, policies and measurable actions for public safety, environment, parks, water, development, housing, employment and more. The first step in updating the General Plan involves creating and adopting a Community Engagement Plan to ensure that Oro Valley residents have opportunities to share their input on Oro Valley’s future.

The current Your Voice, Our Future General Plan was ratified by voters in 2016. Extensive public outreach was conducted over three years, which resulted in an action plan that resonated with the community and was ratified by 71% of the voters. There are 310 actionable items in the current General Plan and the Town formally reports progress annually. To date, 95% of those items are either finished or anticipated for completion soon. The Parks and Recreation Master Plan, ongoing protection of large Saguaros and increased transparency of Town services are just a few achievements that resulted from the current General Plan.
