The SMVE community encompasses about 240 acres (zoned 1 lot/acre) in Pima County. With residential properties accounting for about one third of the acreage (85 acres), the SMVE homeowners are unique in Tucson enjoying quite a lovely open green space in the Catalina Foothills. The governing documents of the SMVE planned community entrust the fiduciary oversight and organizational management of our Commons to the elected Board of Directors. Such common areas of about 150 acres include all recreational amenities, private streets, drainage throughways, utility easements, guest parking areas, plus about 50 acres of trimmed, irrigated, and beautifully maintained common areas we all enjoy daily.
Individual home owners are responsible for landscaping their own lot. See the Yard Rules and Regulations below for some helpful information.
