Breckenridge to purchase old CMC building

BRECKENRIDGE – Breckenridge Town Council decided unanimously Tuesday to buy the $2.25 million former Colorado Mountain College building at 103 South Harris Street.

The town will continue to honor the existing lease with the Speakeasy Theatre, and the college will continue to use the ceramics studio, photography lab and dance studio housed in the building – as agreed upon in a 2005 memorandum of understanding.

The town donated 16 acres to the college for its recently-opened CMC Breckenridge Center at Highway 9 and Coyne Valley Road, and part of the agreement was that the town would have first right of refusal on the Harris Street property.

Council members have discussed a variety of uses for the 27,770 square foot structure including space for nonprofits, housing, community building with some private use or a future town hall.
