Tubac is place of beauty. Any one who thinks less can go to hell. Look at the dump rio rico a "so called" planned community. Every other house has a semi truck parked in the yard. rio rico residents are filthy drug using pigs. Only real people live in tubac. So what if we are rich your just jeolous.

Oh my goodness Castro ... where is this "hostility" coming from?... My husband and i just returned from a trip to Rio Rico and we visited Tubac for the very first time ... i totally agree with you, TUBAC is a beautiful area of Santa Cruz ... but in all fairness to the residents of Rio Rico ... i must come to their defense ... may i ask if you have been up to the Northeast Quadrant of Rio Rico lately?... it is so beautiful up there ... gorgeous large custom homes, are being constructed with views that would knock your socks off ... i can only speak of what we have seen ... our 6.5 acre lot on a Mesa is pure heaven ... and we have every intention of making it our little slice of paradise ... we are real people, not "pretenders" nor are we drug users ... quite professional in our own right ... from what i have heard, the development near Tubac will be in a planned form ... thus weeding out "riff-raff" so to speak ... there should be some conformity ... and i believe a good, firm HOA should take care of any potential problems ... it's just my opinion, but i would think that residential growth can only mean great things for an area's prosperity ... maybe i am unaware of this, but has there been problems in the past between the residents of Rio Rico and those of Tubac ...???... since we are not living there i am truly clueless of what goes on ... in my heart, i had to say what i feel though ... sorry if i offend anyone ...

Castro - You sure are painting with a broad brush.

My best friend lives in Tubac. Yes, Tubac is beautiful but I don't see how the new - very upscale developments are going to hurt Tubac at all. One of them is going to be on 4 acre lots with an equestrian center. Utilities will be underground and it will bring more people to the area that are looking to retire. If anything, it will improve the area and bring more money to the local businesses as well as jobs.

As to Rio Rico. One day you will eat your words. Many people are discovering Rio Rico that can't afford the highly inflated prices of Tubac. The east side of Rio Rico is beautiful and if you are careful, you can find land and build amazing homes with wonderful views without being next to a house with 15 dogs and trailers etc.. What it has is character. Sure I'll have to drive by some ugly houses (although it is a matter of taste - I do think some of the homes are ugly) but once I get deeper into the mountain area - it is pure heaven.

We're from Virginia. We are not drug users ;-) My husband is a well paid (contractor for the government) retired Air Force Colonel... We're also not pigs ;-) We just bought 2.38 acres on a Mesa and plan to build there. The plans for Tubac are way more controlled than Rio Rico and will have strict HOA's - so there is no comparison.

Have a good day.
