The Metro Denver Economic Development Council's board co-chairs honored 16 individuals and groups, including Fairfield and Woods Attorney Rita Connerly, for their collective efforts to help obtain spaceport status in Colorado. From determining a potential site at Front Range Airport to crafting and passing Senate Bill 35, providing limited liability legislation to reduce financial risks for companies engaged in commercial space activities, the group helped pave the way for the proposed Spaceport Colorado, a site for horizontal spacecraft launch into low-earth orbit.

The Chairs' Award for Outstanding Efforts in Economic Development annually recognizes unique economic development opportunities undertaken by a group of Metro Denver organizations.
