A cooperation Agreement between CSURA and UCCS has been approved and signed by CSURA and UCCS. The agreement has also been reviewed and approved by the state EDC. Eleven letters have been received from the National Governing Bodies of Sports certifying their professional relationships with the facility. UCCS has completed the program plan and project budget for the center in cooperation with Penrose St. Francis Centura Health (who is now the partner in development and operation of the Sports Medicine and Performance Center.) The Centura Health board gave official approval of the partnership in July 2017. Architectural design selection began in January 2017 and should be completed by September of 2018. On June 15, 2017 the board of regents approved the 104,000 sf facility at a cost of 61.4 million dollars. Additionally, the capital development committee through the general assembly approved the spending authority for the 61.4 million dollars.
