PUEBLO WEST – A historic building blasted by March’s bomb cyclone will soon be torn down.
The Pueblo West Metro District voted to demolish the administration building. The district says it would cost about $3.5 million to build a new structure. That’s about $200,000 cheaper than rebuilding the old one.
“It is really an opportunity to kind of reestablish and rebrand what Pueblo West is and what we are becoming in our future,” said Jay-Michael Baker with the Pueblo West Metro District.
Demolishing the old building is included in the cost of the new building.
The district hopes to have answers on where the new building will be and how to fund it by June.
