So your tax bill has increased and you need to pay more for water and electricity. Is anyone worried about sustainability in Oro Valley? 

These costs are directly related to the growth of Oro Valley and we all need to know which candidates for town office support our sustainability. Population growth is manageable but those who make town decisions need to make those decisions on the cost of municipal services or the result is urban sprawl. At this date, town officials say that they do not know the average cost for municipal services but they continue to approve more building for more people who will need water, electricity, schools, police, etc... 

Communities can adopt land use plans for future growth, and we have. Abandoning or changing that plan might help investors but it destroys the sustainability of your presence in this town. Demand that your candidates support sustainable growth over the profits of business in the coming elections.
