Broadmoor hotel, golf course talks continue

The Broadmoor hotel, which had postponed discussions on a proposed golf course makeover that would require closing a portion of Cheyenne Mountain Boulevard, will resume public meetings on the project next month.

A community meeting will take place at 6 p.m. Aug. 12 at Colorado Hall at the hotel, 1 Lake Ave.

This spring, The Broadmoor, the 3,000-acre resort on Colorado Springs’ southwest side, said it wanted to upgrade its east and west golf courses to create a venue that could accommodate prestigious golf events, such as the U.S. Open or the PGA Championship.

To do so, the hotel says it needs to permanently close a 3,000-foot section of Cheyenne Mountain Boulevard that runs through the southern one-third of the east and west courses.

The proposal generated opposition from residents in neighborhoods near the hotel, who worried about increased traffic and the loss of an evacuation route in the event of a wildfire in the nearby foothills.

After gathering input from residents, the hotel postponed additional meetings while it considered the feedback it had received.

The hotel now plans to present a project update and an analysis of the ideas and suggestions it received in May.

The Broadmoor is owned by the Denver-based Anschutz Corp, whose Clarity Media Group owns The Gazette.
