If you want to know the history of Green Valley Ranch Community Association, Rick is the person to ask.

- Increasing property values while maintaining a financially strong association

- Compatible development of the one remaining commercial parcel at the District
- Becoming more water efficient while maintaining our beautiful landscaping
- Expanding options for interaction and participation in Ranch activities
Rick has been and continues to be a strong proponent of consistent enforcement of the CC&R’s. Preserving and improving the outstanding GVR experience for all residents is his number one goal. It concerns him that many people do not read and understand the GVRCA CC&R’s they agreed to follow when purchasing property in The Ranch.
He is aware of the considerable amount of time and dedicated effort needed by so many volunteers to keep a Master Planned Community the size of Green Valley Ranch the most desirable place to live in the valley. When asked to state his favorite thing about our community, he doesn’t miss a beat when answering “Green Valley Ranch is essentially the same place I moved to 20 years ago. It’s a great place to live and a wonderful environment in which to raise a family.”
