Commerce City Agency Buys Greyhound Park

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) – The Commerce City Urban Renewal Authority says it has bought the former Mile High Greyhound Park for $3.3 million.

City officials hope to redevelop the 65-acre site as a mixed-use development.

The greyhound park once hosted dog races, but live races ended in 2008. It has been used more recently for off-track betting. The site is now designated a Colorado Enterprise Zone, which means businesses that develop there can be eligible for tax credits.

Community meetings are scheduled from September through November to take public comments on redeveloping the site.

The urban renewal authority said Wednesday that a final plan, including conceptual designs for the site, is scheduled to be released in May.
