“Colorado Springs is in the early stages of revitalizing its core city, and we see the Auditorium project as a lynchpin of that rebirth. The Gazette is eager to chronicle every step forward in this renaissance of our city, so we are eager to shine a spotlight on the auditorium project’s varied impacts on our changing downtown.
Restoring architectural gems like the 100-year-old auditorium is also essential to historic preservation efforts in Colorado Springs, an effort akin to preserving our city’s identity and soul as we grow by leaps and bounds.
We share the vision of the auditorium as a future cultural hub for the city and believe it is essential as an arts- and community-building catalyst. With the addition of new landmarks like the Olympic Museum, the downtown soccer stadium, and the Ent Center for the Arts, Colorado Springs is coming into its own as a world-class city, and expanding its cultural offerings and opportunities is every bit as important to its evolution as new buildings and new neighborhoods.”
