Public Meeting Set: The Future of the Arvada Center

Please join us on Wednesday, October 30 from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. to hear about the exciting news from the Arvada Center!

As many of you know, thirty-seven years ago the citizens of Arvada created a “crown jewel” for the community: the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities. 

As a department of the City of Arvada, the Arvada Center has received significant financial and service support from the City over the years. As the Center has grown and matured into a regional facility, City Council has made the commitment to examine the structure of the Center and determine how to best maintain the mission and values of this important institution. This commitment included a study in 2012 that made recommendations to restructure the Arvada Center in order to maintain and ensure its long-term sustainability. 

To further examine these recommendations, the City Council established the Arvada Center Ad Hoc Task Force. Its purpose was to assess and further develop the recommendations of the study and, if it recommended restructuring, to create a roadmap for the City Council to follow in order to achieve the best possible outcome for the City and the Arvada Center. The recommendations were presented to City Council during a workshop in August and the Task Force received approval to continue moving forward with the proposed restructuring. 

We want to share these recommendations with the citizens of Arvada and surrounding communities at a special meeting on Wednesday, October 30 from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m., in the Arvada Center History Museum. The meeting will provide the opportunity for you to hear more about our plans for the future and will allow you to ask questions as we move ahead with this important initiative.
