Mayor Wellington Webb

Hall Of Fame Inductee — 2006

Mayor, City & County of Denver (1991-2003)

Former Mayor Wellington Webb was intimately involved in every step of developing Denver into a tier-one convention and leisure destination, from building Denver International Airport, to approving the Colorado Convention Center expansion, opening two new sports stadiums, approving and building the new convention center hotel, expanding the Denver Art Museum, building the Ellie Caulkins Opera House and much more. Mayor Webb created more park space than any other Denver mayor and under his administration, downtown Denver was revitalized with new housing, restaurants and shopping.
