Broadmoor Hanger expansion/development:
21SW CC met with CES and Comptroller chiefs, and me to discuss to-date progress-SW upgrades to Broadmoor Hangar for a mission share with the Museum activity.
He won’t be able to complete interior this year.
Decided on a charrette after new CC takes over in July to decide specific use.
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.
