A Feasibility Study to determine the pros and cons of moving the offices of 3 county buildings (plus two other rented office spaces) into the former Kmart building (1198 W. Victory Way) has been completed and the results were discussed at 3 different public hearings
(September 29, October 5 & 13).
For 20 years, the 14th Judicial District has been asking Moffat County to provide a solution to safety, security and space needs at the courthouse. This year, the County conducted a feasibility study paid for by the Colorado Under-Funded Courthouse Facility Commission and Colorado Department of Local Affairs to look at options for improvement to the existing building and to explore moving the County offices into the Kmart Building. The goal is to consolidate 3 buildings into one, thereby reducing the overall operating costs to the County. If it is feasible to move, the County would sell those 3 properties after they are vacated. The cost of the project would be paid for using the sales tax already in place that pays for the bonds at the Public Safety Center, meaning no new taxes would be required to fund the project.

This project also includes adding a new road and picnic pavilion to the north side of the irrigated grass area.The picnic pavilion will be able to double as a band stand and will have enough power for lights and sound.There will be added pipe rail fencing around the perimeter with power outlets for vendors and a new section of irrigated grass. Festivals will be free of the sound of generators.

This project is funded by:
DOLA : $200,000
Tri State Generation:$150,000
City of Craig:$45,000
YVEA : $10,000
The second project is rebuilding the boat ramp and adding river access near the Kiwanis Kiosk. The river access will include a handicap access ramp with a river put in.
