Public invited to provide input into future of the City Auditorium

Share this page:

In 1923, the City Auditorium opened following a culmination of community-driven efforts to create a large, multi-purpose meeting and entertainment facility for the City of Colorado Springs. The City, envisioning that a revitalized and renovated facility is an essential asset to downtown, has sought a financially sustainable solution to address the capital needs of the auditorium immediately and for the long-term in a way that will support and foster the presentation of artistic, cultural, and/or recreational activities in Colorado Springs. 

To this end, the City has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with a new non-profit, the Community Cultural Collective, to determine the viability for pro-active operation and professional management of the 100-year-old facility. The Collective’s vision is to create a city center affording access to all residents that will assure reserving the history and public use of the auditorium for the next 100 years.  The Collective’s proposal is to provide much-needed maintenance, safety improvements, ADA compliance, interior finish, and acoustical upgrades, as well as mechanical, plumbing, electrical and structural system renovations.   

The community is invited to provide inspiration and input during a series of public meetings.
