Broadmoor Hanger expansion/development:
Discussions continue with potential modernization of BH.
Will spend up to $95K this year for the charrette which will result in a project and funding document for 2020/2021 budget.
Regardless of who ends up being located in the BH, it will need to be brought up to code which will include a sprinkler system and other modifications. USSPACECOM or other agencies may require some space within the BH. Yet to be determined.
