I think our town is perfect to setup cluster gigabit internet service similar to what City of Longmont did. This facility can be used to install infrastructure required to internet network and cable TV satellite.

EXCELLENT updates. Really looks fantastic. Love the food trucks and outdoor patio spaces. The inside layout hits all the important points and feels like it will flow together nicely. Something like this would be such an asset to our community. 100% behind the board on this - please proceed!!

I continue to wonder if this is the best location for a community/family center. I understand that Superior is trying to find a use for this property but for a community space to be successful it should be more centrally located and not require most residents to access it by car. It should be in an area that’s more residential and less commercial. Additionally, I have concerns the building is too large and some areas may rarely be used. If the number of meeting rooms and the size of gathering areas were reduced, since they serve similar functions and can be used interchangeably, additional space would be available for other uses. And I have doubts a cafe of that size would ever see enough use to support it. Also, I may be wrong but I think the drawings North symbol is pointing west.

I actually like the new design a lot. I see on page three an area for "potential brewery" which I think is unnecessary and doesn't really fit with the overall feel of the design. The food truck area, OTOH, looks like a lot of fun. I would like to see the 'activity space' heavily biased towards maker-like projects, things that are more intensive than paper crafting and such.

1500 Coalton is such a cool project! As another example of private businesses operating out of public facilities, the City of Denver owns Denver Union Station. What a wonderful example of privately-held restaurants operating in a government-owned, public facility (at market rates). Can, or should, the dining experience in 1500 Coalton be expanded within the building to include more than one cafe/coffee shop/tavern/brew pub, similar to Union Station? Just another thought. These kinds of "food halls" are in high demand across the country. People want community, and experiences. https://unionstationindenver.com/dine/

Stage/Meeting room area: Is there a plan for this area to be used for film/screenings? Media is such a powerful outlet for all ages, and it would be great to have enough stage/wall space + seating to engage an audience for short films etc. Good examples of this in Boulder are the Dairy and the public library off of Arapahoe.

Kevin and team: Bravo. This is really coming together. I have questions about how the spaces will be allocated, though I'm sure it's hard to be flexible while also being specific. Overall it feels like quite a bit of meeting space - like, a lot of tables and chairs. How many meetings do people attend? Yikes! I'd like to see more space dedicated (named) as being for teens. There is a game room and I hope this includes games that get people up and participating such as pool and table tennis rather than a stack of board game boxes on a shelf. I'd like to see a lounge space that is just for teens as well. It will shock nobody to realize that teens want to be segregated from people their parents' ages and from younger children. Let's be the town that offers teens a really comfortable place to just hang out and chill. (I had a place like this growing up and it was everything.) Overall, love, love, love. I'm so glad we are making this community center happen! THANK YOU!

My initial reaction is that the cafe is much too small! I was hoping for a restaurant/bar where a substantial amount of people could gather to eat, drink and socialize (50 people). This looks like yet another coffee counter (we already have 3 Starbucks in Superior, plus Sticks -- do we need another cafe?). I was envisioning a light eats and drinks establishment (alcohol in the evenings) where both small and larger groups could gather and enjoy being in our home town. If this is just a coffee shop or cafe where there is lots of seating, I probably won't use this area much.

Hang out space for young artists, musicians and dancers is vital to retaining long-term residents. Availability of snacks is vital for those young people to spend time together in the rooms. I agree with the folks who discourage a restaurant or bar which would compete with local businesses. So please install a long wall of vending machines for the young people in the Lobby Lounge, the Flex Community Activity space, or in the Game Center. Soft drinks, candy, granola bars, ice cream, pretzels, snacks of all kinds available for purchase in machines, so kids have a feeling of control and comfort over the spaces they use.

Thank you for your continued effort on this project. While I see some improvements in identifying how space will be used, I would appreciate descriptions beyond the labels that provide more details about what the spaces will contain. For example in the "games" area -- what does that mean? Gaming? Foosball/pool? Board games? I agree with previous commenters who mentioned the hope for a maker space -- it could be utilized by all age groups. Community members have also proposed a small rentable/reservable kitchen area that would be really neat for classes/ groups.

Communities in our town are almost 30 years old thus we extremely need an excellent K-12 School, a charter school would be awesome if not possible at least good grocery store like King Soopers. Anything like cafe, restaurant or bar would be a waste of space.

I don't see any space set aside for asset intensive creative activities. I was really hoping for a dedicated Maker Space and Art Space. A place where the community can share the up-front costs of 3D printers, etc that keep so many young people from pursuing their interests in these processes. Also, re the library space, I'm hoping that this will be tied into the broader Flatirons Library Coalition where residents could make reservations online and pick up/drop off books using Amazon locker style technology so that the room doesn't have the overhead of being staffed. Saving us all trips to the Louisville Library - think of all the carbon not pumped into the atmosphere just to go get your reserved book. I would hope the town would give a local team the concession to run the cafe. Keep as much meeting space as possible for us work-from-home types that occasionally need a professional place to meet others.

I really think this is going to be such a great addition to our little town! I think you have captured everything and have really been considerate of all of the multi-uses for our many users. I can't wait to bring my family up there and hang out. I'm also looking forward to working up there during the day and having food and coffee with friends. Will dogs be allowed in the outdoor space? Thank you for all of your work on this - our family is so excited.

Is the cafe going to be a bar as well? Will there be rotating food trucks and more than just two, especially on busy weekends? How will capacity be regulated? Will the library have books to take out or will we still have to rely on the Louisville Library? I strongly think there should be a commercial kitchen space, has this been considered?

It looks great! I didn't know the building was so big. I'm thrilled to see so many meeting rooms. I hope we'll be able to check schedule availability, reserve rooms, and cancel room reservations online. I lead a Girl Scout troop, and I'm active in the Girl Scout Service Unit (all the troops in Superior) leaders' committee, and I would like to host more events that involve more than one troop. My husband is an assistant Boy Scout Scoutmaster, and is also looking forward to having meeting rooms available. Having meeting rooms available, free of cost, is a great benefit to our community organizations. Thanks!

$6.1 million so far budgeted/being spent on this purchase/proposed renovations/architecture firm.This current Town Board has so lost its way in terms of fiscal responsibility and priorities.That $6.1 million would be better spent repaving roads, infrastructure, replacing dying trees, etc.This figure is before any project cost overruns and ongoing maintenance that will be needed.The Town of Superior should not be in the restaurant business - will be showing preferential treatment, hurting other established businesses. Then there is the liability of this place. Considering allowing liquor to be served is also not responsible. How about the Town of Superior instead focus time, energy, and dollars on working to put a check on the continued growth plans of Rocky Mountain Metro Airport with 66% growth from 2014-2019 and more plans to grow aviation business there, plus a desire for commercial flights.Focus on the matters that really matter.

Thank you for all the documents. I will study further. However, on first impression, this just looks like one big meeting space. I'm not sure the community--especially kids--will use it. They might if there were a general gym and basketball court along with healthy vending machines. I also agree that the Louisville library serves our community very well and the drop box in town hall is convenient. Unless the library were devoted to kids's activities (which they do very well in Louisville) I don't think the expense makes sense.

Love all the elements of this space design. I can see going there with my family on a food truck night. Make it unique and it will become valuable. With how tiny the town hall is, I can see this as a valuable space as the Town grows. Please prioritize bike and walking connections in the exterior design, not just cars.

Are there plans for an actual library on-site? Who is going to be responsible for staffing/managing it? Or will it just be a drop off point for returning books? Are there plans to join the Louisville/Broomfield/Boulder consortium?
