I think a big part of the problem is how close it is to the border and most of the cops are idiots. At least now Oro Valley isn't that bad. How long ago did you leave? We moved here from CA in 1991. Since then it has grown so much on the north side. (The real north side not over by the santa cruz river/river rd.) Still like I said though I am leaving as soon as I can. I am thinking about going up to NW, just not too close to the coast. Maybe Washington or Oregon.
