Worthy Neighbors without Borders - "Vecinos" (Neighbors) Affordable Housing Neighborhood
Community Design and Development The primary consideration behind the project design was to create a tangible sense of neighborhood. What was created is a community design that provides a living, learning, working, recreating, and socializing environment unique to the area, possibly unique to all of Mexico. The Vecinos community has already fostered model citizens who have become service oriented residents or “Guardian Warriors” for the Agua Prieta community at large.

The city has a rich military history dating back to the 1800’s and the US Cavalry, Buffalo Soldiers and Camp Harry J Jones. Camp Harry J Jones was established in 1911 to deal with border troubles during the Mexican Revolution and remained an important part of the area for more than 20 years.
