    The Pima County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously on July 5 to approve the sale of a County owned building at 160 N. Stone Avenue. 
    160 N. Stone bldg.
    Tucson Indian Center agreed to purchase the three-story building for $1,507,500. Payments will be made over an eight-year term. Pima County agreed to spend as much as $270,000 in building improvements and to pay for moving expenses. 

    Tucson Indian Center previously leased County owned space at 97 E. Congress. The County has since agreed to lease that building to Caterpillar, which intends to relocate its Surface Mining and Technology Division to Tucson. 

    Pima County purchased the building at 160 N. Stone in 2012 for $635,000 to house additional Justice Court courtrooms and court support services while the Public Service Center was under construction. The County has since spent about $180,000 in building improvements.

    Justice Court support services previously were housed in a leased space in La Placita Village at Church Avenue and Broadway. The annual lease costs for that space were $382,000.

    Tucson Indian Center provides programs for the youth and elderly, including education programs, cultural activities and emergency assistance. The Center was organized as a club in the 1950s and incorporated as the American Indian Association in 1963, which does business as the Tucson Indian Center.
