About Our HOA
Desert Hills 3 East is located below the Santa Rita Mountains in Green Valley Arizona with easy access to I-19, shopping centers, and the city of Tucson. This friendly community of 91 homes enjoys picturesque views as it is bordered on three sides by large arroyos and many areas of nature space with mature trees, wide variety of shrubs and cacti.  We are also lucky to be bordered by Canoa Hills Trails Park. This 130-acre open space trails park with is complete with walking paths. The property was assumed by Regional Flood Control District (RFCD) in late 2019. It is a joint partnership between RFCD and Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation (NRPR) to maintain the park.  Click here to read more about the park and get a trail map for exploring.
Our Association was registered as a corporation with the Arizona Corporation Commission on December 20, 1978.  Our key objective is to maintain the integrity of our neighborhood and maintain the value of our properties. Our active board and members work together on committees continuously improving the community and landscape. The HOA hosts themed parties and events like a Bon Voyage Party, Welcome Back Social and monthly luncheons, where neighbors can get to know each other. Since we are a smaller HOA, it is possible to find a true sense of community. Neighbors wave as they walk or drive by welcoming you to the neighborhood.
Wildlife sightings are frequent and sunsets over the Santa Rita Mountains are vivid. Ninety-one attached and unattached single level homes of approximately 1400 to 1800 square feet feature low-maintenance stucco exteriors and main-level living with either garages or carports and some golf cart garages as well.
