Gusty wind, low relative humidities, warm temperatures, and dry fuels will all combine to produce high fire danger this afternoon and early evening. Red Flag Warning goes into effect at Noon and lasts until 8pm. Please, no outdoor burning or use of flammable materials. Head to the "Weather" Tab for more information on the forecast.
A lack of funds could mean the end of a plan to bring a new performing arts center to Colorado Springs.
Ridgeview Development donated property worth $1 million to the arts community. It's located at Powers and Dublin, on the city's northeast side. The land was for a new Rocky Mountain Performing Arts Center.
But to actually use the property, planners had to raise $2.5 million by this December. So far, only $500,000 has been donated, which means support could be dwindling.
The facility is designed to carry medium-sized events. That's something organizers believe is lacking in the Springs.
