TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Old Tucson Studios first announced they would close in August 2020.

Now, more than a year later Pima County says they'll announce a new operator for the property soon.

The information comes from a memo by interim county administrator Jan Lesher.

The memo details the process the company went through to get to this point, but doesn't name the company itself.

The county says it started negotiating back in September of 2021, and the negotiation process is ongoing.

During the negotiations period, the proposed operator conducted two on-site visits to the Old Tucson Studios property.

They expect County Supervisors to vote on an operating agreement at a meeting in March 2022.
