Organizers of the U.S. Olympic museum – part of the Colorado Springs City for Champions project – expect to have all major charitable solicitations confirmed by January 2015, according to a supplement to the city’s milestone report sent to the state on the City for Champions.

The city sent a milestone report to the state on March 13. The state asked for more details and the city updated its report March 28.

 The supplemental report says that the site for the museum has been identified for donation by the owner and the land acquisition is expected to be complete by July. Organizers of the museum are receiving requests for proposals now for a design architect, architect of record, construction manager, exhibit designer and exhibit fabricator. They expect to make selections by June.

Construction on the museum could be completed by April 2017.
