Colorado Springs — For over a decade, Pikes Peak Derby Dams has been practicing and competing in the Colorado Springs Auditorium.

“The wooden floor is great for roller skates and roller blades and has enough seats for a decent size crowd,” said Natalie Wort of Pikes Peak Derby Dams.

Last year, the city auditorium was closed to accommodate homeless people who tested positive COVID-19.

Meanwhile, Dame’s also paused rolling.

A year later, Dame’s is ready to race up again.

“We’re really trying to rebuild and get back to it bottom-up,” said Jessica Barkler of Pikes Peak Derby Dams.

However, they may not have a place to call them.

A $ 50 million proposal is underway to upgrade the city’s auditorium.

The Colorado Springs Community Cultural Collective, a local non-profit organization, is committed to passing on the space of the building to the future.

“We will energize her in a way that not only preserves her building, but also enhances our entire community,” said Lindawise of CSCCC.

Not only is the proposal wondering what the Derby Dams will be next, but many organizations that have been using the space for years are also involved.

“Talking to the people around the town reminds me of what they have in this place,” said Dave Wesner, a friend of the city’s auditorium.
