By removing the ginormous evergreen tree, the building in the middle of the square (bike library), and the tall strip of seating and planters, the DDA has opened up this public space – making it even more inviting than it was before.
There is now a sense of wonder and contentment in this building now. The precious way the materials in this historic building have been treated breathes out onto everyone inside.

The Big Thompson Flood, during the night of July 31, 1976, was enormously devastating with a final count of 144 casualties.
