Pueblo Urban Renewal Authority


Catholic Diocese Building of Pueblo



In March of 2009, PURA Commissioners voted to approve a property improvement loan and grant to the Catholic Diocese Building of Pueblo.  The loan and grant would contribute toward the construction of extraordinary public improvements associated with the  Catholic Pastoral Center. The purpose of these improvements were to enhance the public pedestrian environment located within City of Pueblo right-of way, around the Catholic Pastoral Center and at the intersection of 1st Street and Greenwood Avenue, approximately one block from the Historic Arkansas Riverwalk.  Improvements made include upgrades to the facade, curb “bump outs”, four additional feet of sidewalk width (totaling 10 feet of sidewalk surrounding the facility), and incidental landscaping associated with the additional public improvements.
