Proposed Development Next to Saguaro National Park
A new 20 acre commercial resort development is planned next to Saguaro National Park, just north of Escalante near Old Spanish Trail. Current plans include 29 individual casitas (seventeen of them are 32-foot high two-story buildings), a restaurant (with liquor license), outdoor lighting, with an estimated occupancy of about 200 people per night. A Conditional Use Hearing is scheduled for May 21, 2019, at the Pima County Board of Supervisors Chambers, 130 W. Congress St., Tucson.
