Quiet Neighborhoods

Who We Are

The City of Rio Communities is located in Valencia County just east of the Belen City limits. It is a  group of serene and tranquil neighborhoods that is a wonderful place to live and thrive.

The Rio Communities Association (RCA) was organized to support the health, safety, and well-being of these neighborhoods. Since 1963, volunteers have worked together to forward these goals.

Developed as a 501(c)4 non-profit corporation, the RCA is supported by a modest membership fee and various fund raising events.

The Current Quarterly Newsletter

The Rio Communities Association publishes a quarterly news letter that is distributed throughout the community.  We encourage you to contact your district representative or our office by phone or email if you have a news article or a letter to the editor.
