“On the forefront of the City Auditorium’s 100th anniversary, in the same way the citizens of 1923 came together, we invite our entire community to come alongside the vision for repurposing this building...a vision to reignite this building to its original mission, a place for the use by its citizens and the glory of the city in a fresh, vital, and relevant way,” said Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers. Mayor Suthers walks down memory lane and reflects on the history and the future of the Colorado Springs City Auditorium in a tribute video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wz91iEUJCzQ
Cultural Collective Vision: The City of Colorado Springs has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Cultural Collective non-profit to determine the viability of its proposal for pro-active operation and professional management of the City Auditorium. The vision of the Cultural Collective is to renovate, restore and revitalize the City Auditorium in support of a cultural city center affording access to all residents and that will assure preserving the history and public use of the auditorium for the next 100 years. The proposal will provide much-needed maintenance, safety improvements, ADA compliance, interior finish, and acoustical upgrades, as well as mechanical, plumbing, electrical and structural system renovations. The MOU does not include transfer of ownership of the City Auditorium property. A transfer of ownership would follow a successful due diligence period as part of a final award agreement and must comply with the City of Colorado Springs Procedure Manual for the Acquisition and Disposition of Real Property Interests.
