· For the first time since 1990 average prices for single-family home resales in Denver declined on an annual ba-
sis. According to a report by RE/MAX Professionals the average price for a single-family house in February was
$263,200, down 0.9% from the same month in 2002. Sale prices in metro Denver have been declining for three
months but February represented the first time the average price fell below the previous year. In addition, the
report found that the number of houses under contract to sell and the number of unsold homes on the market all
declined during the past twelve months. The bright spot in the report for sellers was strength in condominium
sales, where the average price rose 2.1% from February 2002 to February 2003. (Rocky Mountain News,

will be relocated from Sports Authority's base in Fort Lauderdale, joining the 320 people who currently work at
the Gart Sports headquarters. (Denver Post, 2/20/2003) (80110)

of northeast Denver. (Rocky Mountain News, 2/1/2003) (80239)

family permits declined 4% while condominium and townhouse permits fell only 0.4%. The record year for hous-
ing construction in metro Denver was 2000 when 28,617 units were permitted. (Rocky Mountain News,
· Tourism in metro Denver may be starting to recover, according to a study prepared by The Adams Group for the
Denver Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau. During 2002 most indicators of tourist activity in Denver remained
depressed, although the study found the possible beginning of a recovery among most of the indicators tracked
in the 4
quarter of 2002. The Adams Group bases its analysis on indicators such as attraction attendance, air-
line boardings, lodging nights, restaurant spending, gaming and other consumer spending related to tourism.

Believe it or Not museums and two other aquariums, to acquire Ocean Journey pending federal bankruptcy court
