A proposal to annex 183 acres of Air Force Academy land into the city will be aired at a public meeting at 8:30 a.m. Jan. 17 in City Council chambers, 107 N. Nevada Ave.
The annexation would accommodate Blue and Silver Development Partners' plan to build a visitors center on 57 acres near the Academy's north gate.
Blue and Silver's visitors center complex is part of the Springs' City for Champions tourism venture and will include a hotel and office building. The city says only 57 acres will be developed; the balance will remain open space.
