COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO. — The City of Colorado Springs, in partnership with the El Pomar Foundation, the Anschutz Foundation, and the Colorado Springs Downtown Development Authority, is submitting an application for state funding for 4 new tourism projects.
“If the state approves our proposal, that would build four new tourist attractions,” said Colorado Springs Mayor Steve Bach. “An Olympic museum downtown, a multi-sports stadium and event center downtown, a sports medicine building at UCCS, and a new visitor center at the Air Force Academy.”
Colorado Springs Convention and Visitors Bureau president and CEO Doug Price says the development would be great for Colorado Springs and the state of Colorado.
“You know this southwest urban renewal district has been designated, ‘blight’ for quite some time,” said Price. “And it’s just time. The time is now to go ahead and get the facade of our city changed. And it’ll have effects for not only residents but also visitors.”
