Conservation Fund Optimistic on Vistoso Acquisition

The Conservation Fund (TCF) today said that it is optimistic that the contracts for the Vistoso property will be signed in October. TCF will purchase 202 acres of the Vistoso property and convert it to a nature preserve and community trail. TCF will protect the property with a conservation easement and donate it to the Town of Oro Valley once the funds have been raised to reimburse TCF for the purchase price and closing costs.

As part of the agreement, six acres of the Vistoso property, zoned high density residential, will be sold to a local Tucson developer. This is the area near the former golf course clubhouse and VCA offices. According to TCF, details of the agreements will become public once the contracts are signed.

Preserve Vistoso will update VCA members once the contracts are signed.
