    Until the Council and Mayor control spending on golf and the rec center, they have NO business coming to us for more money!

  2. I built a home in Oro Valley 17 years ago close to the Naranja Park site. I saw plan after plan filled with expensive promises. I got gimmicky postcards announcing the cost per resident being comparable to a meal at McDonald’s to get all kinds of park amenities. Remember the years of discussion about dog parks, shooting ranges, police training sites, a skate park, a musical amphitheater, classroom space, a community center and more. What did we get? Ball fields,a dog park, and an archery site. Then blocks away in another location Oro Valley bought an old building on a golf course that bleeds the budget dry.

    Oro Valley, don’t call us, we’ll call you. You are too late.

    I don’t have any money I trust you to spend wisely.

  3. That was a bait and switch scheme voters turned down; voters remembered the broken Marketplace promises and used their heads for once.
    As commentators above note, this town is not to be trusted with our money. A resounding “NO” to a secondary property tax for an expanded Naranja Park.

    AS I see it you can either have the golf course, or the upgrades at naranja, but not both. I do not trust the council to make a good decision about the use of our money after the marketplace promise of an upscale retail shopping place, and the purchase of a golf course in a declining market. If the golf course got to break-even I would consider funds for both, but not on the promises of break-even but after the fact

  5. wonderful post, very informative. I wonder why the other experts of this sector don’t notice this. You should continue your writing. I am sure, you’ve a great readers’ base already!
