The Arvada Urban Renewal Authority (AURA), City and Historical Society have agreed in principle to revitalize the Flour Mill. The Flour Mill is an authentic piece of Arvada’s history strategically located in Olde Town adjacent to the Transit Hub. This historical resource is owned by the Historical Society and the land is owned by the City within the Urban Renewal Area.
The Historical Society Board voted unanimously to team up with AURA and the City to explore how to activate the Flour Mill and turn it into a museum. A new committee made up of three members of the Historical Society, two from AURA, and one from the City will need to hire and work with a consultant to develop a Master Plan. The City is drafting an MOU between the three parties that will outline how this process will work. AURA has indicated they will finance the consultant and, depending on the results of the Master Plan, may finance the improvements.
