Edgewater Civic Center Now Open
DENVER – Hundreds gathered this past weekend to celebrate the grand opening of the highly-anticipated Edgewater Civic Center.
The event included a ribbon cutting ceremony and tours of the facility.
The new Edgewater Civic Center, located in Walker Branch Park, consists of a $13 million, 55,000-square-foot facility for the City of Edgewater. The facility received $3 million in tax revenue from the city’s marijuana sales to put toward the project’s total cost.
In November of 2016, Edgewater residents voted 81 percent in favor of building a new Civic Center. The building includes a 6,000-square-foot fitness center, 8,000-square-foot gymnasium, 10,000-square-foot library, 6,000-square-foot police department and 10,000-square-foot administrative offices and public meeting space as well as entry and atrium space.
The list of attendees for Sunday’s grand opening included various members of the Edgewater City Council & Police Department, Jefferson County Public Library, Alliance Construction Solutions, Humphries Poli Architects, and numerous citizens of Edgewater, among others. The City of Edgewater, in conjunction with the Jefferson County Public Library, hosted the event.
