Town approves $642,000 improvement package to bring bowling alley to Windsor
October 27, 2012
The Windsor Town Board agreed Monday to shoulder an initial $642,000 public improvement incentive package that could bring a 46,000-square-foot bowling alley and a 7/11 convenience store to the Eagle Crossing subdivision.
Doors could open within one year, according to town staff.
Under the proposal, the up-front cost will cover site improvements including paving projects, street lighting and drainage control.
The hefty price tag for improvements is expected to be repaid in less than three years through sales and property tax collections from the new businesses.
The current plan includes a 36-lane bowling alley with Brunswick equipment. Additional entertainment options include laser tag, arcade games and food vendors.
The improvements would also open the metaphorical door for three additional retail spaces on the northeast corner of Crossroads Boulevard and Fairgrounds Avenue.
"This is our entertainment district," said Mayor John Vazquez, noting the proximity to The Ranch and Loveland. "I think this is just the start."
