Bits and Pieces

Suicide death at In-N-Out Burger Last Night
Sad but true. "Last night OVPD handled a death investigation which turned out to be an apparent suicide. The bomb squad was requested as a precaution for a package that was located with the subject. There was nothing in the package of concern once it was checked." (Source: OVPD information office)

Council focuses Vistoso Trails Nature Preserve Plan on revegetation and improving pond area 
Last week, the town council discussed the Vistoso Trails Nature Preserve draft master plan in study session. George Radnovich, a consultant from Sites Southwest, discussed changes in the master plan, survey results, proposed projects, costing, and phasing. The council reached consensus on project priorities and direction, designating funds for cart path repairs, focusing on safety signage, and enhancing the visual appeal of the pond area without reintroducing water features. The council will discuss the plan at the April 7th council meeting. (Source: Oro Valley Town Council Meeting, Study Session of March 20, 2024
