In March, the City of Boulder City advertised for proposals for possible uses of the 8,000-square-foot Boulder City Airport Hangar building and 18.3 acres of runway space at 1401 Boulder City Parkway. The hangar, built in 1940, served as the City’s lone airport until 1990.
The RFI sought projects that would bring new visitors to the City, preserve and promote the historic nature of the site and be innovative in the quality and design of the proposed improvements. Because of the proximity to the current Boulder City Airport and nearby homes, projects could not include an aviation component.
Three responses were received by the May 20 deadline, including proposals from The Bullock Field Coalition, Dandy Horse Ranch and Litjens.
“This is just the first step in a transparent process to evaluate possible uses for the historic hanger,” said Community Development Director Michael Mays. “Should the City Council decided to proceed, the public will have several more opportunities to provide input.”
The next step will be the review of those proposals by the Boulder City Historic Preservation Committee at its meeting August 28 at 7 p.m. at City Hall. The Historic Preservation Committee meeting is open to the public.
