Construction to Start on Civic Campus

Visitors to the Northglenn Civic Center area will notice changes when accessing the site starting the week of Sept. 30.

Construction fencing and detour signs will be installed in preparation for construction on the city’s new recreation center, theatre and senior center. Fencing will surround the entire construction area for the duration of the 18-month schedule. The construction zone includes the grassy area between City Hall and the current recreation center and much of the parking area between City Hall and Interstate 25. 

The City Hall recycling bins will move to the northeast corner of the joint parking lot for Bill Goodspeed Happy Tails Dog Park/Jaycee Park, located at Leroy Drive and Irma Drive.

Pedestrian access to the I-25 underpass near 120th Avenue will be maintained throughout the project. There will be temporary changes to pedestrian routes and parking at times during construction, but signage will be posted to help pedestrians, motorists and cyclists navigate.

The facility will be built between City Hall and I-25. It will have a 320-seat theatre, senior center, preschool area, basketball courts, lap and leisure pools, and more. Learn more at
