The Army’s Pueblo Chemical Depot was realigned in 1988 by Congress pursuant to the first Base Realignment and Closure Act (BRAC). The Colorado Legislature created the Pueblo Depot Activity Development Authority (PDADA) in 1994 and the Department of Defense’s Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) formally recognized the PDADA as the Local Redevelopment Authority (LRA) for the Depot in 1995.
In March 2013, the PDADA completed the process with the Colorado Secretary of State to rebrand as PuebloPlex. At the close of 2013, the Army formally declared 15,847 acres of PCD as surplus property, including approximately 5 million square feet of buildings and bunkers, 100+ miles of roadway, and 40+ miles of rail infrastructure.
PuebloPlex completed an 18-month public redevelopment planning process culminating with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) accepting the updated Redevelopment Plan in May 2016. The plan provides the framework for the future development of the surplus federal property, supporting industrial, storage, and research and development type uses.
PuebloPlex is implementing the Redevelopment Plan for reuse of the property after completion of the Army’s mission, seeking large companies to continue to generate economic development within the community. PuebloPlex currently has tenants conducting manufacturing, warehousing and distribution operations, and railcar storage and maintenance, in addition to serving several business and personal storage tenants.
The Redevelopment Plan provides project background and information on the planning process, assessment of existing conditions, land use plan and proposed transportation circulation for PuebloPlex.
