Join In The Grandstands Groundbreaking December 17
The Town of Estes Park will host a Grandstands Groundbreaking Ceremony on Thursday, December 17 at 10:00 a.m. Community members are invited to join in the ceremony at the Fairgrounds at Stanley Park as the Town Trustees, Town staff and the Estes Park Urban Renewal Authority (EPURA) break ground at the site of the new grandstands. Guests should enter at the temporary construction entrance on Manford Avenue across from the old Estes Park Auto Mall. Hardhats will be provided as necessary. Rooftop Rodeo Committee members, Lions Club members as well as representatives from project architect Thorp and Associates and general contractor Taylor Kohrs will also be present to mark the occasion.
The new grandstands will seat nearly 2,700 people, an increase of 600 seats from the old grandstands facility. Construction of the facility will be complete in May of 2010 in order to accommodate summer events. Current project updates and photos are available at www.estes.org/events
The Town of Estes Park and EPURA have partnered to fund the construction of the new grandstands. EPURA is managing the project and the Town will assume full ownership of the facility upon completion. Local subcontractors include Rightway Electric Company, Estes Park Lumber Company and Lafarge North America.
