Quality of Life
The reasons people call Colorado home often include a passion for the outdoors, a diverse and dynamic community and the contemporary pace to life that appeals to all ages. As you’ll soon discover, the Town of Erie offers the best of all of these. With our majestic mountain views and progressive civic vision, we provide a genuine small-town feel with all the reassuring qualities that implies – a sense of community, neighbors who care, and a contemporary town with modern amenities and comforting closeness.
Not surprisingly growing families, young professionals, outdoor enthusiasts, and active adults are drawn to our panoramic location, scenic trails, championship golf course, recreational activities and more than 300 days of sunshine per year. Of course many are also attracted by our premier educational facilities, which include new and planned schools.
Factor in our award-winning 63,000 square foot Erie Community Center and 20,000 square foot Erie Community Library; and our quality of life just keeps getting better and better.
