ROMSPEN FILES APPLICATION TO CHANGE THE ZONING OF THE CLOSED VISTOSO GOLF COURSE
March 30, 2020 -- Preserve Vistoso this afternoon received the preliminary filing plans from Romspen and Spectra Properties on plans for development of the former Vistoso Golf Course.

We are meeting this week with the Town of Oro Valley to discuss how it plans to have open meetings before the end of April.
Preserve Vistoso believes that the requirement for community input is seriously jeopardized by precautions in place to protect citizens from the spread of the COVID- 19. The Oro Valley Public Code indicates that public meetings should be set up to promote fair and open dialogue between stakeholders, applicants, and staff. Since the rezoning proposals would alter the 2016 citizen-approved Oro Valley General Plan and Planned Area Development, Preserve Vistoso believes that the process must include in-person meetings planned at a time when public meetings are again possible.
