CSAS News: July 2009

CSAS Moves into Highlander Building

Highlander Building, CSAS new headquartersLike many organizations, as the recession of 2008/2009 deepened the CSAS found it necessary to reduce our operating overhead by moving into a smaller facility.  Our good fortune was to have a very good option – the Highlander Building at 1428 Greene Street, on Silverton’s ‘main’ street.  This new building offered a 500 square foot office space, at street level, and ample basement storage.  Staff made the move to the Highlander from the Schmidt Building (see 2008/2009 Diary) in July and were able to sustain operations with minimal disruption.  Our attractive new space offers sufficient room to house our administrative functions and small classes.  More recently, our sister organization – the Colorado Avalanche Information Center – has also moved their local Silverton forecasters’ office into the Highlander Building office suite adjoining ours, recreating the ‘across the hall’ proximity we had previously shared at the Miners Hospital.  We welcome visitors … look for our logo on the Highlander Building’s façade, between Town Hall and the San Juan County Courthouse.
