    File: vaccination clinicThe Pima County Board of Supervisors on May 15 approved the acquisition of Golden Pin Lanes, 1010 W. Miracle Mile, from its current owner for $2,941,600. Purchasing the property will allow the County to establish a Northwest Pima County Community and Health Services Center that will consolidate and better coordinate public services.

    “Moving programs with compatible missions and which serve similar communities makes sense financially and from an organizational perspective,” said Chief Deputy County Administrator Jan Lesher. “Putting those operations under one roof will save the County approximately $600,000 annually and make it easier for people living on the near Northwest Side to find the assistance they need.”

    Departments slated to move into the facility include Probation, Public Health and Community Services, Employment and Training. All three currently operate programs out of separate leased locations.

    The County’s proposed budget for the 2018-2019 Fiscal Year includes $3.3 million for capital improvements to the 4.67-acre property which includes a 50,000 square-foot main building and 1,734 square-foot commercial building currently used for storage.

    The most recent appraisal of the property put the value at $2,200,000 while the owner recently made $500,000 in improvements, including the addition of a commercial kitchen.

    The agreement allows Golden Pin Lanes to remain in the property and continue to operate for up to one year after the sale closes.
