WE NEED YOU!

Ref:  Final Draft - Oro Valley Parks and Recreation Master Plan – Important Actions Requested

 

OVLC Families:  We need you to:

  • Participate in a Zoom Meeting on Tuesday April 20 – at 6:00 PM
  • Email the Mayor and Council regarding the Town’s Draft Parks and Recreation Master Plan

 

On April 14, the Town of Oro Valley issued a Draft Parks and Recreation Plan and this plan will be reviewed by the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board on Tuesday April 20. At this meeting, Board will receive public input and then make a recommendation to the Mayor and Council regarding adoption of the plan. A key element of the plan is the construction of additional fields at Naranja Park – fields that are critically important to the success of our youth and high school lacrosse programs.

 

The OV Lacrosse Club along with the Oro Valley Sports Alliance has been advocating for the build-out of Naranja Park and we’ve been successful in having this project identified in as a priority (Year 1 – 5) project. However, there are many other priority projects and we need to convey to the Advisory Board, and ultimately to the Council, that this should be priority No. 1. You can do that by participating in the 4/20 Zoom Meeting. Your comments to not need to be lengthy – just that you support the construction of four new lighted fields and related improvements at Naranja Park ---- and that this work should be given highest priority ---- and that construction of 4 new fields at Naranja Park should be completed before other park improvement projects are initiated. (A copy of the concept plan for Naranja Park is attached).

 

We also encourage you to email the Mayor and Council with the same message. These actions are important because as you’ve been getting your daughter / son to practice and games, other members of the community have been actively lobbying the Council to move in different directions.

 

Your assistance is important and appreciated.
