General Plan Amendments
The Future in Balance
The General Plan is the Town's policy document providing broad guidance in the areas of land use, circulation, public safety, water resources and other community related topics. The General Plan provides for an annual amendment process to consider changes to the document. Neighborhood meetings will be held for each amendment to gain community input on the proposed changes. The specific date and time of the neighborhood meetings (once scheduled) for each amendment can be found under the amendment heading below. Following the neighborhood meeting process, the cases will be forwarded for public hearings and recommendation for the Planning and Zoning Commission during the month of November. The Town Council will then consider the amendments and make a decision at public hearing in December. Information on the specific applications can be found below, or by contacting the project planner listed with each application. The Town of Oro Valley welcomes all comments on the proposed amendments to the General Plan.
