Living in Green Valley
Green Valley, Arizona, is an unincorporated, census designated population (CDP) located 25 miles south of Tucson, Arizona, and 40 miles north of Nogales, Arizona. The major transportation corridor, Interstate-19, which joins Tucson and Nogales in Arizona and Mexico, is destined to become one of the focal points for a commercial corridor planned by Sun Corridor, Inc.
According to the US Census Bureau, the Green Valley CDP has a total area of 26.3 square miles. However, the majority of the residents are dispersed along a 10-mile-long ribbon, running parallel to I-19 and the Santa Cruz River Valley. It is flanked by the soaring Santa Rita Mountains on the East and the reclaimed talus slopes of the copper mines on the West.
