The Town of Erie, located in Boulder and Weld Counties, is the perfect place for growing families, young professionals, and active adults with a passion for the outdoors and a desire for a small-town atmosphere close to the amenities of a major metropolitan area. The Town of Erie’s Comprehensive Plan Vision Statement says it all, “Erie is a community which recognizes the importance of conserving and enhancing its historic small town character, the roots from which it grew, preserving the natural environment in which it resides; a caring community which offers its residents an environment in which to seek a high quality of life; a balanced community with a diverse range of housing, employment, educational, shopping and recreational opportunities; and a vital community which provides financial and social support for quality of life programs.” Although the town’s population places it on the smaller side, it has ample land to accommodate growth it has seen. The town spans 48 square miles and features 1300 total acres of parks and open space and includes 13 neighborhood parks, 2 reservoirs, 1 golf course and 58 miles of trails. The town was settled in 1871 and incorporated in 1874. It was named after the founder, Reverend Jeptha Van Valkenburg’s former home of Erie, Pennsylvania. The town grew quickly after the Union Pacific Railroad extended a spur westward from Brighton with the expansion of the coal industry in the area. Erie is notable for its impressive mountain views, award winning schools, proximity to I-25, Highway 36, Denver International Airport, easy access to the ski resorts and land available for town expansion. Erie has a population of just over 30,000 with most residents moving into the area after 2000. The construction of new homes in the area has been booming in recent years and has set Erie up as one of the fastest growing communities in the metro area. Home values are rising quickly and have started to out-pace the rest of the metro area. The median price for homes that closed in the last six months of 2021 was $650,000, up 15.2% year-over-year.
