Pima County goes ahead with land purchase for soccer complex

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pima County leaders are moving forward with a plan to spend money from road repair funding to build a soccer complex. 

They voted four to one in favor of the plan to buy more than 150 acres near Kino Parkway and I-10 for the complex. 

In addition to several fields, it would also have spots for restaurants and hotels.  The money for the down payment is coming from road repair funding and that sparked a debate right before the vote. 

The county will spend less than $2 million to buy the land now and it will go to voters next year in a bond election.
