TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The price estimate to continue upgrades at the Tucson Convention Center is likely more than Rio Nuevo and the city of Tucson alone can handle.
Those numbers have been made public in a cost estimate summary released by Rio Nuevo.

"But Tucson doesn't have that," McCusker says. "Phoenix does."
And that price tag does not include $18 million for a parking garage.
