I'm currently in Rio Rico, don't know of any major construction going on that side other than the Loves facility at Ruby Rd exit, and you don't want to live by their.

Can you give a closer pin point?
There isn't much outside noise here, properties and such are spread out.

I feel like I'm answering my own question but just wanted some insight anyways.

I can only think the most noise sensitive person would have issue. And if there is issue in Rio Rico, then there isn't much they'll find OK. From what you posted they are all single family units on independent and large lots, likely have to strain to hear them.

I'm sort of familiar with those roads back there. Used to race bicycles in the 80's and we had a big road race on those streets every year back there. The story we were told is that those roads were initially built back there in the 1960's & 70's and was Arizona's version of selling Florida swamp land to unsuspecting folks in the Midwest. People would buy lots sight unseen and the developer built a series of roads to give a little bit of credibility to their upcoming development. The whole thing went belly up, but the roads remained unused for decades.

It was a perfect place for a bike race, unused roads out in the middle of nowhere that had zero traffic. Had it set up for a nice 10 mile loop on rolling hills and all we had to do was try to avoid hitting the occasional wayward cow.

There was a newspaper article I remember reading when I was in college in the late 80's about the area as well. Gave a story about how every once in a while some elderly couple pulls into the nearest gas station in Green Valley asking for directions to their property. They want to see the one acre plot they bought 20 years before that was worthless because no utilities were ever coming to that area.

For grins and giggles a few years ago I drove around back there and they must have figured out how to start selling those plots again, because the links to the houses you have posted are on those roads.

There is a network of odd roads here, thanks for some explanation. It looks like if they saw a hill, they carved a road. Lot's of hills here.

Still a great place to ride your bike too.

What side of the freeway do you live on? I'm curious how much military overflights there are on the east side ?

GulfAmerica Corporation. Roughly 5000 of 50,000 lots were sold. Those are county roads that are maintained as needed or not. I think the comparison to Florida swampland is pretty close. I got 3.5 acres through the tax sale from Vatere. Vatere had been created to hold the much less buildable lots..but it was adjacent to my acre with city water and electric. Pretty easy to do septic up there.

West side, I've not noticed any military flight activity. My guess activity is closer to Sierra Vista with Fort Huachuca nearby.

Do you anything about this:
https://www.nogalesinternational.com...25b8aec39.html

Is this the only industry type thing on the westside?

Also if you have time to give your opinion on the soundscape of these places:

The asphalt plant was temporary while I-19 surface work was being done. Closed down a year ago, no current talk of it opening back up. It would have no effect to anyone on the East side.



The listed properties are in quiet areas too.

One downside to the East side is there are a lot of washes and dips through the hills that fill with water during monsoon season.
