What's in a Name?

The name "Civano" comes from the Hohokam Indian civilization who inhabited the area around what is Tucson today.  The Civano Phase was from the years 1300 to 1450, near the end of the Classical Period which was known as a time when human needs were balanced with natural resources.



Have you ever heard of Civano? We hadn't either until we saw an article in Sunset Magazine featuring Civano as one of the Southwest's most innovative new communities. The front porches, courtyards and other design details on Civano houses recall the distinctive architecture of early America. Drought-tolerant landscaping with native desert plants such as palo verde and mesquite reinforce Civano's unique sense of place. If the terms "new urbanism," traditional neighborhood design, and "pedestrian-friendly environment" appeal to you, you will love your visit to Civano.

From the Inn at Civano you are a three-minute walk to the north swimming pool, tennis court, and the Community Center. The Center is home to shops, a fitness center, and a multi-purpose meeting room. The neighborhood is knitted together by a system of beautifully landscaped walking paths.

Civano is conveniently located on the quiet east side of Tucson, just 25 minutes from the Tucson Airport. There is easy access to the University of Arizona and downtown Tucson. Even closer are the University of Arizona Technology Park (in Vail) and Saguaro National Park East.
