New Home Builders cite reasons for building outside of Tucson City Limits

If you are looking for a newly built home, you are best off moving out of the Tucson City limits according to a new statement by the Southern Arizona Home Builders Association.
The group cited crime, lack of planning, and general city bureaucracy as reasons more people are moving outside of Tucson when they seek newly built homes in safe neighborhoods.
The report expresses the personal opinions of various executives in the development industry and related businesses. They were granted anonymity since most have business ventures in the City of Tucson. Several were concerned that there could be repercussions for speaking out publicly about City operations.
The report says “Graffiti and crime challenges flourish. West of I-10, “some neighborhoods are on the edge of blight,” said a builder. At Pueblo Gardens off Kino Parkway and 36th Street, public utility crews sometimes need police escorts.
“For after-hours work, we’ll call the police to meet us there to protect the safety of our employees,” said a utility executive.”
Some codes of little benefit only add to housing costs for workforce residents and For many, the complex matrix of antiquated ordinances is a deterrent.
One alternative for those seeking newly built homes is Red Hawk at J6 Ranch, just a half hour drive from Tucson.New home builders can choose their lots that range from 2.5 to 5 acres and start at $69,000.
This Arizona land offers paved roads and underground utilities are already ready for hook-up.
It’s located 2 hours from Phoenix and 30 minutes east of downtown Tucson and offers properties with room to breathe, inspiring mountain views, and of course those cooler temperatures.

The SAHBA report is food for thought for those seeking new and safe neighborhoods. Its part of the reason Red Hawk at J6 exists, to accommodate those who want a safe and affordable new home yet still have the ability to commute to work in the greater Tucson area.
Is there a brighter future for Development in Tucson Proper?
Not according to area contractors who told the association
“The City’s shotgun approach to fixing regulations with band aids doesn’t work. There are pieces here and there, but nothing is connected,” said a member of SAHBA’s Technical Committee.
