At its regular meeting on Jan. 15, the Oro Valley Town Council voted to extend the temporary use of A-frame signs, non-profit signs and outdoor displays for Oro Valley businesses until Feb. 1, 2016.
“Although our economy is beginning to recover, we are still on the mend,” said Oro Valley Mayor Satish I. Hiremath. “The two-year extension of the temporary relief program ensures continuity of this strategy as the economy continues to recover from the recession.”
The program, which began September 21, 2011, was expanded February 1, 2012, to include non-profit organizations. It charges a one-time $50 fee for users of A-frame signs, and an over-the-counter (or walk-in) review is completed prior to permit issuance. Fees and administrative reviews are waived for non-profit organizations and outdoor displays.
The Development & Infrastructure Services Department and Economic Development Division will be informing all businesses of the extension, and an educational forum will be held in February by the Greater Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce.
