2. All new irrigation systems for two (2) or more acres of turf must connect to the Town’s reclaimed system per Section 15-15-9(5)(b) of the Town Code. Any addition of new turf to create an aggregate area of more than two (2) acres of turf must extend the reclaimed system to their properties per Section 15-15-9(2)(1)(b) of the Town Code.
3. Provide a minimum 30 foot wide access to OVWU’s Well E-2. This access must be in the form of an access/egress easement dedicated to OVWU and when the school site is designed it must allow OVWU 24-hour access to the well site, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

1. The development includes Trail #180, known as the WAPA Line Trail in the Oro Valley Trails Task Force Report. The WAPA Trail traverses most of the center of the Town and provides an important through route for users. The proposed development area also includes Trail #331, which connects both to Trail #180 as well as (eventually) to Trails #33 and #156. Trail #33 (Honey Bee Canyon Trail) is adjacent to the eastern edge of this area. In addition to being noted in the Task Force Report, these trails are listed in the Eastern Pima County Trails Master Plan. Trail #33 is also a State Trail as designated by Arizona State Parks.
2. All three of the aforementioned trails must be identified as “non-motorized public recreation easements” and must be a minimum of 15 feet in width.
1. A new cultural resources survey must be conducted within the subject portions of Neighborhood Five at the time of PAD amendment. This new cultural resources survey would identify the current boundaries of previously recorded archaeological sites AZ BB:9:155(ASM), AZ BB:9:169(ASM), and AZ BB:9:41(ASM). If cultural resources are identified, development and implementation of a mitigation treatment plan prior to ground-disturbing construction [is required].
Public Works Conditions
The sewer main connection to the existing Sun City lift station shall be constructed according to the timelines set forth in the existing agreement with the
Public Works Submittal Requirements
Among all the standard elements set forth for the submission package (site analysis and
1. For any future rezoning of the subject property, the Department of Public Works will require at a minimum, a full hydrology report containing the following hydrologic information submitted as a part of the application/site inventory submission package:
a. Describe and map on an aerial photograph the perimeter of all off-site watersheds that affect, or are effected by, the site both upstream and downstream to their logical conclusion and note all balanced and critical basins.
b. Provide a description of any significant off-site natural features and manmade features located within the above watersheds that may affect or be affected by the site.
c. Indicate the area in acres for those upstream off-site watersheds with 100 year discharges greater than 100 cubic feet per second (cfs).
d. Describe and map the characteristics of the existing on-site hydrology. Include the following:
i. Approximate 100 year floodplains with a discharge greater than or equal to 50 cfs.
ii. Sheet flooding areas with their average depths
iii. Federally mapped floodway and floodplains
iv. Peak discharges both entering and leaving the site for 100 year events which exceed 50 cfs using approximate methods such as the regional area versus discharge graphs.
e. Provide a qualitative description of existing drainage conditions along the downstream property boundary.
f. Describe how the Tentative Development Plan responds to the hydrologic characteristics described in the Inventory and Analysis for both existing and proposed conditions. (Examples include building setbacks, density, building placement, location of open space and recreation areas).
g. Identify if any features of the development (i.e. structures, roads, lots), as shown by the Tentative Development Plan overlay, encroach on and/or modify existing site drainage patterns. Explain why this is necessary and other alternatives that have been considered.
h. Describe and map potential drainage impacts to off-site land uses both upstream and downstream due to the proposed development.
i. Describe and map approximate location of engineering and design features that will be used to mitigate drainage and erosion problems for the proposed development. (Examples include detention basins, revegetation, rip-rapping and preservation of channels in their natural state).
j. Describe how the Tentative Development Plan conforms to all applicable area plans, basin management plans and Town policies.
2. For any future rezoning of the subject property, the Department of Public Works will require at a minimum, the following traffic information submitted as a part of the application/site inventory submission package:
k. Map all existing and proposed streets on and between the development site to, and including, the nearest streets as shown on the Oro Valley Transportation Plan. Also map all arterial streets within one mile of the project site. For all streets identified, provide the following general information:
i. The existing and proposed rights-of-way widths.
ii. Whether these rights-of-way meet minimum
iii. Ownership (public or private)
iv. Whether the rights-of-way are continuous or whether they jog.
v. The number of travel lanes, theoretical capacity and design speed on existing roads.
vi. The present Average Daily Traffic (ADT) for existing streets
vii. A description of the surface conditions of the existing roadway which provides access to the site.
viii. When roadway and intersection improvements are programmed to be completed by public or private entities.
l. Map existing and proposed intersections on the arterials within one mile of the site which will likely be used by traffic generated by the development.
m. Map any existing bicycle and pedestrian ways adjacent to or on the site to their connections with arterial streets, parks and schools.
n. Provide a full traffic impact analysis report (attached as an appendix) which must include:
i. A description of the proposed internal circulation and access to/from arterial streets included in the Oro Valley Transportation Plan for the project, their location and the rationale for their placement in terms of circulation.
ii. If the tentative Development Plan depends upon future off-site road improvements for access, state which roads, the projected time frame for their completion.
iii. Discuss the projected ADT at “build-out” for the internal circulation system and the level of service to all streets and intersections as outlined within the study area. Provide a projection of traffic volumes and capacity analysis, based upon the development’s “build out”, on the arterials and at the intersections within the study area.
iv. Describe the impact to existing development abutting off-site streets listed above.
v. Provide capacity analysis for proposed internal streets and proposed off-site streets and describe the right-of-way and pavement widths, geometrics, design speeds and traffic control improvements which will be needed.

vii. A schedule listing who the applicant believes is the responsible party or agency for making said improvements.
viii. Provide evidence that proposed turning movements will meet safety standards in relationship to traffic volumes.
o. Describe proposed on-site street right-of-way, indicate their proposed ownership and show typical roadway sections.
p. Describe any proposed bicycle and pedestrian pathways within the development and indicate whether they are constructed to external pathways, arterial streets, parks and schools.
q. For proposed developments within 1 mile of a public school, describe and map safe walk/bike paths for students. Student walk/bike paths should be designed, with easements between selected lots, as required, to reduce walk/ride distances.
r. For proposed developments greater than 0.5 miles from elementary schools and greater than 0.8 miles from middle and high schools indicate safe bus stops and safe bus turnarounds, if required. Bus stops should be designed to allow residents to monitor the safety of children while at the same time minimizing the impact of waiting children on the adjacent residents.
