A year-long study of the buildings and grounds owned and managed by the State of Colorado in the State Capitol area and its resulting recommendations have been released by the Office of the State Architect in 2013. Authorized by Senate Bill 13-263 (C.R.S. 24-82-101(3)), the Capitol Complex Master Plan will assist with facilities planning, maintenance and funding decisions through its extensive evaluation of agency needs, building conditions and urban design issues. It has been more than 25 years since the last facilities master plan was completed.
The scope of the master plan includes the 11 buildings and grounds in the Capitol Buildings Group at the Capitol Complex, as well as additional buildings and sites owned by the Department of Administration & Personnel (DPA) and managed by Capitol Complex Facilities (CCF) in the Denver metropolitan area and one building located in Grand Junction.
The plan was amended in 2021 with a new Chapter 9.
The Capitol Complex Master Plan can be reviewed in person at Colorado State Archives, 1313 Sherman St.
