    The Pima County Board of Supervisors approved at its May 21 meeting a development agreement between Pima County and FHM Partners for a connection to the Chuck Huckelberry Loop from the Foothills Mall.

    The mall sits on 51 acres of land in unincorporated Pima County Cyclist on the Loopat the northwest corner of Ina Road and La Cholla Boulevard. The developer is working to transform the mall into a regional destination and living environment. Both the County and the developer want to connect the property to the Loop once the parcel is revitalized. 

    The Loop connection will run southwest along the Carmack Wash from the property to Mona Lisa, then north along Mona Lisa to the Ann Day Community Park entrance, and then through the park to the corner of Magee and Shannon.

    The path will consist of a 14-foot asphalt striped cross-section with no additional irrigation or other improvements. The preliminary cost estimate for the project is $450,000. 

    The developer will pay 100% of the cost, excluding any costs to acquire the right-of-way, of designing and constructing the portion of the Loop connection between the property and the Ann Day Community Park entrance.

    The County will pay all costs associated with acquiring the required right-of-way along the Carmack Wash between the property and Mona Lisa, and 100% of the cost of designing and constructing the portion of the Loop connection between the Ann Day Community Park entrance and the corner of Magee and Shannon. 

    Construction of the path could be anywhere from a few to several years off depending on leasing and occupancy at the property.
