On today’s show we’re talking about a major development project that we have underway. We closed yesterday on a parcel of land consisting of 1783 acres on the edge of Colorado Springs. This property was part of a much larger property called the Norris Ranch that originally was close to 20,000 acres. There is a story behind Mr. Norris and the Norris Ranch. We purchased the property from Mr. Steve Norris, son of Bob Norris who died in 2019 at the age of 90. Bob Norris was a cattle rancher. Through an unlikely turn of events, Mr. Norris had an elephant on his ranch. Bob Norris was famous as the Marlboro Man, the public face of Marlboro cigarettes.
This project would not have been possible without forging a partnership with some very prominent families in the local Colorado Springs market. We have a strong vision for this project as an extension and growth of the Colorado Springs community.
