The Town of Windsor will break ground on its new Public Works Service Facility at 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 10.

The new facility will help alleviate overcrowding — identified in the town’s 2014 facility operations evaluation — and will increase efficiencies with the Public Works and Parks and Open Space staff. Construction is anticipated to be complete in fall 2017.

“As one of the fastest growing towns in Colorado, it is clear that we have outgrown our existing Public Works space and need to build a new facility to better serve the community and continue to provide essential town services,” said Mayor Kristie Melendez. “The new facility will help solidify our town’s infrastructure and maintain our strategic plan performance commitments as we continue to grow.”

The new Public Works Service Facility will house the departments of Public Works (Administration, Streets, Utilities, Fleet Maintenance) and Parks and Open Space at the 24-acre site on 15th Street. The initial phase of construction will concentrate on developing 10 acres for Public Works staff by fall 2017, providing space for the departments to expand with projected growth through 2035.

The Town of Windsor will not incur new debt as a result of the $13 million project.

“With thoughtful leadership and support from the community, the Town Board set aside reserves for this project over time to provide funding without adding new debt,” Melendez said.

A $1.5 million Colorado Department of Local Affairs Energy/Mineral Impact Assistance Fund grant and a
$5,000 contribution from Great Western Oil and Gas Company will help offset costs.

Planning and design for the Public Works Service Facility was completed by Infusion Architects, Maintenance Design Group, LLC, Interwest Civil Engineers, and BHA Landscape Design, in collaboration with town staff and community members.
