We created TakebackOV.com in 2017 to speak for the residents of Oro Valley. Why? Because at that time, Oro Valley’s seven council members were simply out of touch with the community.
One of our biggest concerns was the "rooftops strategy" that resulted in numerous unanimous votes of approval for new homes on small lots (including Big Wash). That construction continues today; some have still not broken ground.
With the election of a new mayor and councilmembers in 2018 and 2020, a more "sensible growth" strategy was implemented.
