Communication

  • The Town conducts yearly business surveys to collect information regarding factors that may be impacting Oro Valley businesses. This helps the Economic Development Department develop programs and locate available resources that may assist with remediation.  
  • A comprehensive email database was created during the pandemic that now helps the Town communicate with businesses about pertinent resources, upcoming events & support services.
