TOWN OF DILLON ANNOUNCES PLANS TO IMPLEMENT IMPROVEMENTS AT DILLON AMPHITHEATRE.

 

DILLON, COLO. – Dillon Town Council gave preliminary approval to move forward with construction

level drawings of the Dillon Amphitheatre Master Plan and secure financing for the improvements

through available cash, loan, grant, and capital campaign.

 

The Dillon Amphitheatre is a 25-year-old facility that hosts numerous, diverse, civic events each summer

Including; free Friday and Saturday concerts, dance nights, movie nights, Naturalization ceremonies and

other community services.

 

“The investment in the Amphitheatre is part of a long term plan to invest in public amenities in order

 to support and encourage redevelopment opportunities in the Town Center,’ said Mayor Kevin Burns.

“As part of the 2015 annual retreat, we (council) looked at our goal of driving economic redevelopment and

 determined that the best action we can take currently is to invest in aging public amenities that have a

 proven track record of providing enjoyment for residents and guests and that also contribute to the

success and sustainability of our town by driving awareness, foot traffic and spending in Dillon.”

 

Facility improvements will include:

  • Increased and improved restroom facilities
  • Improved Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility
  • Streamlined backstage loading and unloading capabilities
  • Improved grade of grass seating area
  • Wider stairways and increased walkway lighting
