Oro Valley News Blog – Oro Valley Recall Elections Show Incumbents Winning

November 11, 2015

Oro Valley Community CenterAfter an aggressive recall effort, voters supported the incumbents. Although some of the vote tallies were close. Incumbents will retain their seats until the 2018 election. The outcome may reflect voter understanding that sometimes you need to take a risk to create the vision.

The El Conquistador County Club facility and golf courses had been purchased by the Town of Oro Valley for $1Million earlier this year. The purchase is to be funded with an increase in the Oro Valley sales tax.

The El Conquistador facility will serve as the Oro Valley Community Center. The golf courses are to be operated on a daily fees basis. Annual membership options are available.

Is it needed? Surveys have indicated the answer is YES! Is it perhaps bigger then necessary? In all likelihood YES. But the price was very good relative to the space and cost to build an all new facility.

What will the future of the new Oro Valley Community Center look like? We will just have to wait and see.
