RISMEDIA, June 13, 2008-Where else could there be a more perfect place to live than in a community Sunset Magazine voted as the Best New Community for 2004? Civano, a 180-acre premiere energy efficient, green community located in the Southwest area of Tucson, Arizona holds this title. Civano includes a mixed-use neighborhood center, a variety of energy-efficient residential homes, recreation areas, pocket parks, a community garden, pools, tennis courts, sport spark, walking and bike paths and substantial open space preservation.
At Civano, front porches invite neighbors to visit and garages are frequently located in the rear off carriage lanes. Sidewalks offer a safer place to stroll. A pedestrian-friendly neighborhood, Civano reduces the need for cars. Civano is about building community; about connecting with one another. It is the subtle blending of people, residences and the existing desert environment.
Civano also boasts its own Civano Charter School. Civano Charter School students weren’t surprised when Ellen DeGeneres announced on her show that their school was the greenest in the nation.
Civano retail amenities include a Yoga studio, Dance Studio, Massage Therapists, Bed & Breakfasts, Skin Care and Hair Care salons and its own Civano Plant Nursery.
Civano is close to all major arteries, including I-10, to ensure quick access for people who must work outside of the community. It is close to schools, shopping, food stores, recreational areas, national parks, bike trails, and major employment areas such as Raytheon and the Science and Technology Park. Civano is 25 minutes from downtown Tucson.
