Meeting Speaker Spotlight
Jeff started as town manager here in Oro Valley in June of 2023, after many years in similar positions in the Mid-West. Born in Indiana, Jeff is a Hoosier. (Ask John B. what a Hoosier is.) One point that was stressed by Jeff is that locating your home or business in Oro Valley is a conscious choice of many people.
     Without trying to recall all of Jeff’s points, here are a few:
  • Oro Valley is sales tax dependent for most of its funding.
  • A housing study will be conducted, as guidance in developing the next general plan.
  • Videos are available on the town’s website to help understand how OV operates.
  • The format of monthly department reports, available on the website, is being reworked to hopefully make them more understandable for the public.
  • Many improvements have been made to Naranja Park, with more to come; including a two-million-dollar project that just secured a one million dollar federal grant for funding.
  • A multiuse pathway is planned for the north side of Naranja Drive. It will be a federal project, so it is several years away.
  • Water usage of the town’s system has been down over the last several years.
  • A facility on the west side of town is being built to help OV better use and more easily distribute the town’s portion of the CAP water allowance.
  • All the wastewater that is sent to Tucson for reclamation and returned to OV for use is being used in Oro Valley.
  • Want to better understand how the town government works? There is information on the town website, including information about the “Citizen’s Academy”.
