As you drive or walk through Tortosa, have you noticed the littering? How easy would it be to simply place those empty water bottles, fast food bags, and any other trash in an actual trash can? Arizona imposes a fine for littering. If you witness littering, get a license plate or contact Maricopa PD and report the incident. Help keep our Community clean!
Class A misdemeanor. Fine up to $500 (§534.040). First conviction of intentional littering: fine between $500 and $1,000, and eight hours community service in a litter abatement program. Second conviction: fine between $1,000 and $2,500, and 24 hours community service.

Hello Tortosians!

I would like to take this time to talk about temporary home rentals a.k.a. Airbnb, VRBO, Home To Go, or Summer Rentals just to name a few. As tempting as it may be to rent your beautiful home out for a weekend, a week or even a month, please remember that this is not allowed in the Tortosa community. 

Per Article 4.23 of the Declaration for the Tortosa Homeowners Association, No lot may be leased for a period of less than three (3) consecutive months. Additionally, the Association is to be provided with a tenant information form certifying the tenant agrees to the Association CC&R's, Articles, Bylaws and Rules/Guidelines. Article IV, 4.23 Leasing;
Obligations of Tenants and Other Occupants.

Please help us in keeping Tortosa the family community that you know an love!
