Graduation for the 2021 Oro Valley Community Academy

Presentation of graduates from the 2021 Oro Valley Community Academy
The purpose of this presentation is to recognize the graduates of the Oro Valley's Community Academy- 2021 class. The Community Academy provides an opportunity to learn more about the Town and serves to inform, educate and encourage residents to be active participants in their community.

Seven classes delivered by several Town staff members or community volunteers covered a variety of topics, including:
  • Oro Valley's form of government, department structure and an overview of Town finances
  • The history of Oro Valley
  • Town growth trends and annexations
  • Roadway improvements and future planning
  • Parks and Recreation amenities and integrated strategy for the future
  • Current and future water capacity, including the drought contingency plan
  • Zoning and public participation in the development review process 
In addition to the topics listed above, participants representing various boards and commissions informed others about their respective roles and responsibilities and encouraged those interested to apply for vacancies or stay engaged in the community by attending public meetings.

This was the 23rd annual Community Academy yet the first session to be provided online. The online platform maintained the high level of engagement expected with Community Academy. It also resulted in a higher retention rate than in-person classes with 94% of participants graduating. This year, 35 residents attended Community Academy, of which, 33 graduated. The majority of the graduates attended all seven classes. The members of the 2021 graduating class are included in Attachment 1.
