As many of you have learned in presentations from the Colorado Historical Society or in media reports, the Colorado History Museum is exploring relocation options stemming from the State’s need to expand its judicial facility that currently shares the block with the Colorado History Museum, as well as ongoing programmatic studies dating back to 1998, in which the Colorado Historical Society has been reviewing their existing and future programmatic and site requirements.
The State of Colorado and the Colorado Historical Society have identified and evaluated eight potential sites for a new Colorado History Museum, and one of the options involves Denver’s Civic Center Park.
The City of Denver and the State of Colorado want to get stakeholder feedback on the desirability of this collaborative opportunity and solicit input on potential issues and opportunities including the organization of additional public processes.
Denver Parks and Recreation, the Civic Center Conservancy,
the Colorado Historical Society and the Colorado Judicial Department
