City to consider Hotel Arizona partnership

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Tucson City Council will go behind closed doors Tuesday to consider a proposal from Tucson developer Humberto Lopez regarding his Hotel Arizona property downtown.

Lopez just took over control of the La Placita Village property next to the hotel.

He has asked the city in the past to allow tax concessions to help fund renovation of the hotel property but has been denied.

The current proposal would create a partnership between the city and Lopez.
