A Fantastic Investment Opportunity

Canoa Preserve in the community of Green Valley, Az.

You are years ahead of your competition with this 293 acres of prime Pima County Arizona land with an Approved Final Plat for 80 parcels. This includes 76 one plus acre parcels and four estate sized parcels ranging from 11 to 20 acres each. Canoa Preserve is located in the growing community of Green Valley just 25 freeway minutes south of Tucson and Tucson International Airport. The property is in the well-established custom home corridor of the city with numerous successfully completed high end developments adjacent to the land.

The process to obtain a Final Plat Approval from Pima County is very arduous, complicated and expensive. It is a two year project that the sellers of this valuable land have already completed. Finished landscape, clubhouse and entrance feature plans have also been completed. The most skilled engineers and design firms in the region created an extremely well designed finished plat complete with engineering plans. There are no off-site improvements needed and the sellers have negotiated very low impact fees for the buyers of the finished lots. They will save $15,000 or more on permits compared to most other subdivisions.

This will help immensely in the marketing of the parcels to the public. All parcels will be at least one acre in size with all utilities underground and a very generous amount of open space throughout the development. Very well composed and tasteful CCR’s and design guidelines have been recorded. Every lot within the approved plat enjoys outstanding uninterrupted views of the surrounding high desert mountains and valleys.

The site provides attractive views to the Santa Rita mountain range immediately to the east and the Santa Catalina mountain range to the north. The property is traversed by several natural washes which will be preserved as open space within the community providing scenic vista and wildlife corridors leading to the nearby mountain ranges.

Green Valley is a quiet, full service suburb of Tucson that is nationally known as one of the southwest’s premier retirement communities. Green Valley is one of the largest active adult communities in the world with a population of approximately 28,000 people. Green Valley is thought to be primarily a retirement community but recent growth patterns have transformed the housing dynamic of this area. The availability of larger and unique home sites in recent years has motivated more families to move into the Green Valley community, resulting in a more balanced demographic diversity. Because of its close proximity to metropolitan Tucson and its highly educated and well paid tech sector workforce, sales of upper end single family homes have flourished. New schools, parks and shopping centers are all in the immediate area. There is a new state of the art County Softball Park adjoining the Canoa Preserve property. This 53 acre parcel was donated to Pima County during the platting process. It is the first Pima County Park in Green Valley.

One of the main draws in the area is the climate. Green Valley is at 3,000 elevation where the days are warm and sunny throughout the year. The average high temperatures range from 61 degrees in January to 89 degrees in July. This ideal climate allows a variety of outdoor activities to be enjoyed throughout the calendar year. Eight championship golf courses are all within minutes of Canoa Preserve. A full complement of shopping and services are found in Green Valley. Residents need not travel long distances for medical care. Green Valley has a complete roster of physicians and specialists. A new hospital is under construction and is set to open in the first quarter of 2015. Canoa Preserve offers a rare opportunity to acquire a fully entitled custom home lot community in one of the southwest’s most sought after cities.

Press Release: FICO, Pima County Discussions Laying Groundwork for Anza Trail Connection

(Sahuarita, Ariz.) Farmers Investment Co. (FICO) and Pima County are engaged in discussions that will lead to 1.9 miles of a trail easement connecting the Canoa Preserve Community Park to the Anza Trail.

The easement would allow for a designated route through the FICO pecan orchards offering a safe, non-vehicular connection for hiking, cycling, and equestrian traffic between the park and the trail.

The easement, which is being developed with input from community stakeholders such as the BAJA Sporting Club and the Santa Cruz Valley Bicycle Advocate Committee, should be finalized by the end of the year, after approval of the Continental Farms Specific Plan. Continental Farms is the portion of the Sahuarita Farms Land and River Master Plan in Pima County.

“Creating healthier and safer communities is a guiding principle of our Sahuarita Farms plan,” said Dick Walden, FICO President. “This easement is but one step in meeting that commitment to the community.”

“This easement is an opportunity to provide non-motorized connection between two important community assets – the Canoa Preserve Community Park and the Anza Trail”, said Bill Adamson, Co-Chairman of the Santa Cruz Valley Bicycle Advocate Committee. “This increases our fine network of bike lanes and trails with the benefits of higher property values, a stronger economy and most importantly improves the health of the community.”

“I hope that BAJA and Pima County can be as good stewards of the land as FICO has been,” said Chuck Catino of BAJA. “The community needs this park and the whole state needs the Anza Trail. Connecting the two of them just makes sense.”

The Sahuarita Farms Land and River Master Plan will guide the long-term growth and development of FICO’s farmland as portions of it gradually transition to other uses in the next 4-5 decades. It builds upon previous planning efforts undertaken by the Town of Sahuarita, Pima County and FICO. A key component of this planning effort is the River Master Plan, a framework for long-term enhancements of the Santa Cruz River, including flood control, opportunities for recreation facilities, trails, open space and wildlife habitat.
