Palmer Hall is undergoing a full renovation as part of the multi-phase RTA master plan for the Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind. The CSDB is listed on the Colorado State Register of Historic Properties and is the only school in the state of Colorado dedicated solely to the education of the deaf and the blind.
Palmer Hall will house CSDB's "Bridges to Life" program which serves students between the ages of 18 and 21 who are deaf or hard of hearing and blind or visually impaired. The program seeks to bridge the gap between high school and the real world, emphasizing the three key areas of education, employment, and independence. Palmer's residential areas will be expanded to more closely approximate apartment living and allow for increased independence. Palmer Hall will also feature a multi-purpose common area and kitchen.
