The near 30 year old Greeley Mall goes on the auction block today for a fraction of its original building cost. The mall, which is currently in foreclosure, has been looking for a buyer for over two years.
The traditional "suburban" mall may be on its final leg, as a new type of retail shopping destination emerges.
Lieutenant Governor Joe Garcia spent the day in Greeley gathering feedback for an upcoming plan to improve early childhood literacy. Among the topics of discussion at a University of Northern Colorado event were possible partnerships between local K-12 schools and higher education.
To walk into Connections for Independent Living’s downtown Greeley location is to be greeted with brightly colored walls, open communal spaces, inspirational posters, a friendly smile and an introduction to Flash, the excitable blue betta fish. A warm welcome is only the beginning; the staff members work tirelessly to help people with any type of disability to gain the self-confidence, legal aid and funds necessary to live independently.
