GreatWestern Depots Project Update
November 1, 2019
Update from the Save the GW Depots! Committee
During the summer Committee Chairs Sharon Danhauer and Paula Sutton worked with city staff and Loveland Historic Preservation Commissioner, Jim Cox to hire a consultant to conduct a structural assessment of the GW passenger and freight depots to see if they were structurally sound to be moved, and a rough cost estimate to move them. The report was completed mid-October and the LHS Board is reviewing it. The good news is the assessment came in $1000 below budget and stated the depots were structurally sound to be moved! When moved, the city will take over with building the foundation, hazardous material mitigation, insurance, etc. And more good news, the initial estimated figure for the project has been cut almost in half, although still an estimate, of course. The LHS Board will meet in November to determine how the LHS would like to proceed with the project and fundraising efforts.

A huge thanks to all donors so far! It’s good to know people do care about saving these iconic Loveland buildings!
