The City, Library District, and PSD Partner on New Southeast Innovation Center

Oct 16, 2023 | Chamber News

The City of Fort Collins, Poudre River Public Library District, and Poudre School District (PSD) are proud to announce a commitment among the three organizations to open a new community innovation center in southeast Fort Collins.

In the spirit of true collaboration, each partner is contributing assets to this project. PSD is providing the land needed for the facility. The City of Fort Collins will build the innovation center with an outdoor aquatic facility and the potential for an indoor 10-lane lap pool plus indoor leisure aquatics amenities on the land in the future. Poudre Libraries is also contributing to the construction cost of the facility and will open a new full-service library inside that expands core library services in the southeast area and activates new, multipurpose spaces. Once the new community center opens, the existing Council Tree Library will be closed. Construction on this project is anticipated to begin as early as 2025.

The attached press release (PDF) provides additional details about the partnership and the project’s next steps. If you would like to speak to any of the agencies involved, please reach out to the individual media contacts listed in the announcement.
