Town managers, mayors to discuss Vail incorporation

vail arizonaWith the November 5th election approaching, residents of Vail will have an opportunity to learn about the proposed incorporation process as well as ask questions about Proposition #403.

A town hall meeting regarding the incorporation of Vail will be held at the Old Vail Middle School on September 19th at 6:30 p.m. Hosted by the Citizens for Vail Committee, the event will feature a panel discussion with Mayor Duane Blumberg of Sahuarita, Mayor Ed Honea of Marana, Gilbert Davidson – Town Manager of Marana, and Greg Caton – Oro Valley Town Manager. The panel will also include Tom Belshe, the Deputy Director at the League of Arizona Cities and Towns.

Scott Altherr, a member of the Citizens for Vail committee said, “The Town Hall is a great forum for the residents of the proposed Town of Vail to better understand the benefits and process of Incorporation. It is an exciting time to be a resident of one of the best communities in all of Arizona, especially knowing the future of our town will be decided on in the November election.”

Although early ballots are mailed in October, voters will still have a chance to vote at their local polling place on November 5th. Proposition #403 to Incorporate Vail will be the only measure on the ballot this election cycle.


  1. I’m for Green Valley leaving Pima County. Ally is our only representation. Chuckie just wants more and more $$$. We have county roads that have been crack sealed so many times they’re like washboards. Where’s the money Chuck?

  2. As soon as COT declares bankruptcy all pensions promised to their employees may be worth as much as ten cents on the dollar.

  3. Vail incorporating would be great. Then maybe a big business could get a license (unlike dealing with COT) and set up shop, bringing lots of high-paying jobs.

    Too bad the Foothills and Tanque Verde couldn’t get together and do the same thing.

    • Munquino says : would be great. Then maybe a big business could get a license (unlike dealing with COT) and set up shop, bringing lots of high-paying jobs. – Your kidding right? How many ” big business” jobs do you see in Tucson? Hell even “Big Box” has trouble staying open much less big business – baseball even left town – the burger places go under and another taco shop opens up… butt we do have a trolly …. .ding ding ding…

      • I think you completely missed my point. The only way we’ll improve this area is if big businesses come in here (due to tax breaks, etc) and bring high-paid employees. That isn’t going to happen with the COT (i.e. GCU, Rosemont, Intel, Motorola).

        If other areas incorporate, they could offer those incentives. I totally agree about the trolly – its a streetcar to nowhere.
