Community Events are those larger events that are put on in collaboration and through partnership with other entities, such as the Town of Sahuarita. As such, these events are open to all residents of the Town of Sahuarita. Some examples of Community Events are the “Sahuarita Spooktacular” or “Fiesta Sahuarita”.

Rancho Sahuarita often partners with other entities and organizations in the Town of Sahuarita to host Community Events. They are funded through a variety of sources, including through financial partnerships, sponsorships and through the sharing of resources between the different parties involved. Therefore, a Community Event, though sometimes held on the premises of Rancho Sahuarita, is not limited to the community’s residents and instead of open to all residents of the Town of Sahuarita.

What are the monthly HOA dues in Rancho Sahuarita?

The monthly HOA dues for most neighborhoods in the community are based on one standard rate. However, there are some gated neighborhoods and Active Adult neighborhoods that have other fees in addition to the standard rate per month. Please refer to the ‘Homeowners Association’ page of this site for more details.

Who should residents contact with questions regarding payment of HOA dues, CC&Rs, or community policy compliance?

Residents who have questions regarding any of the above topics are asked to call Associa Arizona at 520-742-5674.

Is parking allowed on the streets throughout the community?

Although the streets in Rancho Sahuarita were built as part of the development, they are controlled by the Town of Sahuarita with regards to maintenance as well as parking issues. Residents should obey all posted parking laws, particularly relative to prohibited fire lane parking safety issues. Cars can be ticketed or towed when in violation of these fire lane laws.

Why are residents prohibited from holding sports practice in the green spaces throughout the community?

Per the CC&Rs, organized sports practice in community green spaces, like pocket parks, is prohibited. Our green spaces are intended for recreational use only. Many sports organizations provide the teams with practice and game fields that ensure the participants’ safety and that are covered under that organization’s insurance. In many cases, the fee that these organizations charge to participate covers that insurance and/or rental fees for sanctioned fields. Many organizations, therefore, will not cover any injuries that take place on an unsanctioned field.

In addition, the grass areas in Rancho Sahuarita were not designed to function as sports’ fields, and therefore do not have fencing around them and/or are not far enough away from public streets and homes. Therefore risks include damage to resident property and also potential danger to children and other participants, as well as damage to the park green space itself. As an alternative, Sahuarita Parks and Recreation Department oversees the use of Town parks and green spaces for use by teams and leagues. Please contact them for further information or any questions regarding this use at 520-822-8896.

What are the policies for use of the trails in the community?

The Rancho Sahuarita Community boasts over 17 miles of paved walking and biking trails. On any given day, many residents can be seen enjoying these trails and spending time in the various parks and green spaces which they connect. When using the trails, residents are asked to please observe proper etiquette and share use of these spaces.

Are my pets required to be on a leash?

According to the CC&Rs set forth by the Board of Directors, all pets, when outside of residents’ private property, must be on a leash. This regulation is set forth to promote the safety of other members of the community, as well as the safety of the pet(s) themselves.

What is the procedure for residents to follow when other residents fail to clean up after their dogs, or let them run free throughout public spaces?

All residents are encouraged to pick up after their pets and required to ensure they are on a leash. Picking up after a pet is a common courtesy, and it helps to eliminate health concerns and risks. Thousands of people are probably bitten each year by dogs that have “never bitten anyone before.” For those who choose to let them run free, it can become a legal issue if there is a problem with another resident or their pet.

Should anyone be threatened by a dog running loose, we encourage you to call 911 and/or the County Animal Control office.

What should I do if I experience an issue with neighborhood disturbance, such as loud parties or disruptions, or with illegal parking in fire lanes or on private property?

If a resident experiences any of the above issues, they are asked to contact the Sahuarita Police Department by dialing 911, which is the Pima County dispatcher. An officer(s) should be requested, and they will then respond to the call promptly.

What is the policy with regards to unruly neighbors, or unruly residents in public spaces in the community?

The Rancho Sahuarita Owner Code of Conduct restricts and prohibits inappropriate language, lude conduct, physical gestures or intimidating behavior. As stated in the CC&Rs, “Any noxious or offensive activity which in the reasonable determination of the Board tends to cause embarrassment, discomfort, annoyance, or nuisance to persons using the Common Area.”

All residents, lessee(s), occupants of a unit, and their guests are expected to conduct themselves in a mature and responsible manner while using the premises. Abusive/offensive language, fighting and/or other disruptive behavior is not tolerated and the offender will be asked to leave.

Do I have an opportunity to talk to the HOA leadership and ask questions or express my concerns?

Residents can ask questions or provide comments or concerns through a variety of ways in Rancho Sahuarita. Firstly, the HOA leadership holds a special event each quarter called “You Talk, We Listen.” This event is designed to answer residents’ inquiries and have open discussion about issues presently concerning the community. All residents are invited to attend.

Residents can visit the Rancho Sahuarita Clubhouse, and fill out a Comment Sheet for the Comment Box. These comments are reviewed and any necessary follow-up is completed by a member of the Team. In addition, residents can offer suggestions, which are reviewed, archived, and at times implemented when appropriate.
