TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

At the State of the City address yesterday, Mayor Rothschild mentioned how important the re-development of Downtown was to Tucson's success, and at the center of that was the renovation of the Tucson Convention Center.

It all comes down to the decisions being made later today at the Rio Nuevo Board meeting, on whether construction begins on the TCC or not.  Many board members are confident the general contractor for the multi-million dollar project will be approved and construction can begin.

Rio Nuevo officials are saying the next phase could start in the one to two weeks, with completion of the entire project by the end of the year. 

Officials are also saying that construction should not affect those attending events at the facility.
