These attractions will draw new out-of-state visitors, extend visitor trips, and enhance the quality of life for residents, all while dramatically increasing the economic vitality of the Colorado Springs community and the great State of Colorado.
Steve Bach - Former Mayor
This is a tremendous opportunity to boost Colorado tourism simply by capitalizing on things that already make us a prime destination for visitors. With Pikes Peak, the Air Force Academy and the United States Olympic committee all here, this is an opening to invest state tourism dollars in facilities that will increase tourism and provide an economic benefit for the entire state.
Dennis Hisey - Chair of the El Paso County Board of Commissioners
I am excited that UCCS is a part of this vision. I’m so excited about what City for Champions will do for our city.
Pam Shockley-Zalabak - Former UCCS Chancellor
This is an exciting time for Colorado Springs. Communities go through cycles, and we’re beginning a new one. You can count on the trustees of the El Pomar Foundation as the city moves forward with these plans.
Bill Hybl - El Pomar
