The Colorado Springs Urban Renewal Authority recognizes the importance of public art in the success of its redevelopment efforts and, therefore, establishes the following requirements for each urban renewal project. The redeveloper shall provide and install artwork reviewed by the Authority and/or the Art Commission of the Pikes Peak Region when artwork is exhibited on public property (parkland, sidewalk easements, etc.). Artwork is considered to be forms of original creations of visual art, including but not limited to sculpture, mosaics, ceramics, audio, stained glass, fiber art, woodworking and metal work. Artwork may also include unique and artistic landscaping features and ornamental architectural embellishments, not necessarily part of the basic design of a structure or building. Artwork shall be maintained in accordance with adopted project design guidelines in each phase of development. The total amount to be expended by the redeveloper on artwork shall not be less than one percent (1%) of the estimated cost to be incurred in the construction, rehabilitation, renovation, remodeling, or other constructed improvements within the redevelopment area, unless otherwise negotiated with the approval of the Colorado Springs Urban Renewal Authority.
