Citizens Advisory Committee

The National Western Center Citizens Advisory Committee was convened in 2013 by the Western Stock Show Association to provide an opportunity for the community to learn about, have meaningful input on, and be a major participant in the development of the proposed National Western Center, and provide input and feedback throughout the implementation of the master plan (PDF).

Among other responsibilities, the Citizens Advisory Committee:

  • Provides input regarding projects and issues related to the development of the National Western Center
  • Assists in communicating elements of the National Western Center project to the residents and stakeholders in the Globeville, Elyria, Swansea (GES) neighborhoods
  • Advises the National Western Center regarding the needs and desires of the GES neighborhoods in relation to the National Western Center project
  • Identifies potential opportunities and concerns and helps find workable solutions that address the needs of the community at large
  • Promotes transparency and communication between the partners, the city and the surrounding neighborhoods
  • Works to ensure that the National Western Center build-out meaningfully benefits the adjacent communities in the short and long terms.


The CAC is a diverse group that represents many interests.

The voting members of the group include, but are not limited to, the residents, community groups and business leaders located in Globeville, Elyria, and Swansea, as well as statewide partners with an interest in the area.

The National Western Center partners and facilitators are non-voting members of the committee and include the Western Stock Show Association, the City and County of Denver, Colorado State University System, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and History Colorado.

The National Western Center Citizens Advisory Committee meets on the last Thursday of every month in the Centennial Room at the National Western Complex. Meeting materials and contact information is available on the NWC-CAC website, hosted by CRL Associates.
