TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Pima County will buy a popular west-side bowling alley and turn it into office space.
The county's Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 Tuesday, May 15, to purchase Golden Pin Lanes for $2.85 million.
The county will spend $4 million to renovate the building but it does have an escape clause, which will allow it to pull out of the deal if asbestos becomes an issue.
According to this memo written by County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry, there are several advantages for the county taxpayer to consider, not the least of which is saving taxpayer dollars.
The Golden Pin Lanes at 1010 W. Miracle Mile, was built in 1959 and opened in 1960.
Huckelberry has said the bowling alley will have a year to operate before the renovations begin.
