Erie, Colorado

People who call Erie, Colorado home include those with a passion for the outdoors, with majestic mountain views and a genuine small-town feel. Erie is made of up a lot of growing families and is in a convenient location – 35 minutes to DIA 25 minutes to Denver and 20 minutes to Boulder. In recent years, this community has grown considerably as more people look for locations close to Boulder but don’t want to pay the high prices Boulder homes demand.

More efforts are being made to make Erie have more community centers. On February 12, 2013, the Board of Trustees approved a conceptual Downtown Plan that included redevelopment of Coal Creek Park to serve as a catalyst to reinvigorate Downtown as a desirable destination for residents and businesses.
