Rents Highest In Oro Valley 

"Rents were highest in the Oro Valley/Catalina submarket, at an average of $838 per unit, and the lowest average per unit of $512 was registered in the South Tucson/Airport area."   This from a recently released report by commercial realtors Cushman & Wakefield.

"Cushman & Wakefield analysts associated the slight rental gains of the past years with the lack of job growth within the region, and they expect minimal growth until significant hiring occurs in the market." (Source)

Oro Valley Police Assert That HiVE Works

"While the [accident] cases at Oracle and Magee are the highest, Oro Valley Police say the data shows a 4.5 percent drop since traffic officers began enforcing its high visibility enforcement, or HiVE, patrols in 2012. Injury-related accidents also dropped by 50 percent in the last year, police said." (Source)

The focus of the HiVE activity is on Oracle between Suffolk Road and Magee.

The data to which the police refer are they town's latest crime statistics.  Most traffic accidents in the second quarter of this year involve Oracle Road.
