New visitor complex proposal for Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs

New visitor complex proposed for Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs

The United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs may be in line for a brand new visitor complex.

If the proposal is approved, the site would offer a new Air Force Academy visitor centre, hotel, restaurants and retail shops.

Blue and Silver Development Partners presented plans to El Paso Commissioners last week.

The project is a response to falling visitor numbers. Attendance has reportedly plummeted since 9/11. One of the main reasons is thought to be the increase in security requirements.

The City for Champions project in Colorado Springs includes a $13 million dollar tax incentive for a new visitor centre.
