Vista Del Oro Created
3 Canyons Ranch allows the creation of “villages” (sub-developments with their own homeowners association (HOA) and optionally their own CC&Rs) — provided the CC&Rs are not less restrictive than the overarching CC&Rs of 3 Canyons. Any construction or changes to properties must be approved by 3 Canyons, a simple and inexpensive process through 3 Canyons Master Design Committee (MDC), using that village’s Design Guidelines and CC&Rs.
Vista Del Oro (VDO) is established March 12, 1999, with its own CC&Rs, by Tucson’s Marty McGarry in conjunction with Ernie Graves.
VDO is designed as a Nature Conservation Subdivision, unique within 3 Canyons Ranch in that VDO’s Common Area B is held under a Conservation Easement, with special rules and restrictions as part of the original approval process with Cochise County. Although the minimum building lot size in 3 Canyons is four acres, this arrangement allows VDO to have one-acre lots in conjunction with the common area. (Cochise County still uses VDO’s subdivision plat as their example of a Neighborhood Conservation District.)
