The National Western Center Citizens Advisory Committee (NWC‐CAC) was convened in 2013 by the MOU Partners to provide an opportunity for the community to learn about the proposed National Western Center; to provide input and feedback during the master planning process; to identify potential concerns and help find workable solutions that address the needs of the community at‐large; and to ensure transparency and communication between the partners, the city and the surrounding neighborhoods.
This NWC‐CAC is a diverse group that represents many interests, including:
- Residents of Globeville, Elyria and Swansea neighborhoods
- Community and business leaders
- Community non‐profit organizations
- Riverside Cemetery
- National Western Stock Show
- City and County of Denver
- Colorado State University
- Denver Museum of Nature & Science
- History Colorado
The NWC-CAC generally meets at the National Western Stock Show, 4655 Humboldt Street, on the last Thursday of the month from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
About the National Western Center
The National Western Center represents a visionary transformation of the National Western Complex and Denver Coliseum sites into a must-see destination and regional asset, enhancing these current Denver landmarks through creative year-round activity. With a combined 130 acres of redeveloped land, the National Western Center will support Denver’s global standing as a world-class hub for the Western way of life. The master planning effort will bolster a variety of opportunities through the involvement of our partners including Colorado State University, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, History Colorado and an Advisory Committee made up of residents, business owners and other stakeholders from the surrounding Globeville, Elyria and Swansea neighborhoods. In short, the NWC can become an international model for a synergistic educational and R&D community – with those entire words writ broad and adapted to the evolving definitions of mid-21st century populations.
The National Western Center celebrates the pioneering spirit and promise of the West through year-round experiential lifelong learning, the arts, entertainment, competition and commerce.
