The Sahuarita Times

News and Updates

Rancho Sahuarita is a dynamic community – one where things are constantly growing, changing, and moving. These changes are important to our residents, and we want them to continue to play a vital part in all that makes our community so great. This is the place where you can find information regarding news and updates that affect the community, whether it is local and related only to Rancho Sahuarita, or if it involves the community or the Town of Sahuarita in an even bigger way. Take a look at all we’ve been up to.

Rancho Sahuarita also uses Southern Arizona’s Community Newspaper, The Sahuarita Times, to keep residents informed and up-to-date on issues that impact the community. This newspaper covers the areas of Sahuarita, Green Valley, and Southern Arizona.

Founded in 1999 and published monthly, the Sahuarita Times is dedicated to enlightening and informing Southern Arizona about the positive impact people and events are making in our communities, schools, major issues, and residents’ lives. In addition to News and Updates, you can also find the online versions of current Sahuarita Times issues here.
