The Windsor Downtown Development Authority hosted a Town Hall meeting on Tuesday, July 29, 2014 at 6 p.m. at which the preliminary findings of the Historic Mill Feasibility Study were presented. Holtkamp Planning provided a presentation that included initial concepts they developed. The public was invited to hear the presentation and to provide comments on the concepts that were presented.
The Mill was built 1899 and was designed to operate as a flour mill and grain elevator. Following World War I, the milling operation closed due to economic changes that gave rise to the more lucrative sugar beet crop. The Mill building was used as a livestock feed storage facility from 1919 to around 1990, and subsequently, in part as a commercial retail building until being closed by tornado damage on May 22, 2008.
The Windsor Downtown Development Authority (DDA) received a matching grant from the Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) for $20,000 for a feasibility study of the Historic Flour Mill located at 301 Main Street, Windsor, CO 80550 and within the DDA boundary.
The feasibility study will determine the most appropriate property uses, building uses and realistic financial strategies for the protection, restoration and redevelopment of the Mill.
