The redevelopment of the National Western Center and the doubling of the original footprint of the grounds requires pre-construction site work. In the last two years, the Mayor’s Office of the National Western Center has been preparing the site for redevelopment. Land acquisition, rail consolidation and site remediation are the three priorities the program team has been focused on.

Land acquisition of areas surrounding the site follows regulations established in the uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970, and direct communication and collaboration with neighbors and business owners The Act was adopted in good faith to provide fair and accurate provisions to purchase properties and provide relocation resources to residents and businesses impacted by the project.

Additionally, the deteriorating quality of the land and aging structures to be removed have necessitated the establishment of a thorough site preparation process. This procedure includes an environmental assessment, abatement and remediation, removal of site utilities, clearing of site structures and grading and stabilizing the soil.

Beginning this fall, site preparation will be visible along Brighton Boulevard from 44th Ave. to Race Court. This work is necessary to begin construction improvements along Brighton Boulevard after the 2018 National Western Stock Show.
