Neighborhood Meetings/Community Academy
The Town of Oro Valley has an extensive Public Participation requirement for all new development applications which is intended to:
- Build trust through effective public outreach
- Promote fair and open dialogue
- Inform and educate stakeholders
- Provide stakeholders an opportunity to ask question, identify issues and forge solutions
- Promote consistent implementation of agreed upon solutions
The Public Participation provisions require a minimum of two (2) neighborhood meetings for most development applications. The first meeting is an education session to discuss the process and applicable regulations. The second meeting is an opportunity for the applicant to present the project, solicit feedback, and address issues and concerns. A complete listing of the Town’s Public Participation process can be found in Section 22.15 of the Zoning Code.
Community Academy is a program offered by the Town of Oro Valley Planning Department that provides citizens an opportunity to learn more about the Town. The program serves to inform, educate and engage residents to be active participants in building and sustaining their community by discussiing a range of development topics. The program is conducted annually in the fall and is open to all Town residents.
Please check back soon as enrollment for the 2016 Community Academy is expected to begin in the summer.
