The Oro Valley Town Council approved zoning amendments and a revised master development plan for developer Town West Companies to revitalize the Oro Valley Marketplace.The council's vote during its Nov. 10 special session is the result of a nearly three-year effort that included six neighborhood meetings, extensive technical reviews, numerous site inspections by decision makers and six public meetings.Town West CEO Jim Horvath said meeting densities and height requirements were challenging.  'The most difficult thing was to try to achieve some densities while still not exceeding the height requirements that the mayor and council wanted to keep in place,' he said, 'and we are able to come to a compromised solution that has some decent densities, but also keeps the heights (requirements) especially for the apartments.
