Learn About the State of Colorado Cities and Towns

Each year the Colorado Municipal League (CML) produces a "State of Our Cities & Towns" report, highlighting how Colorado communities are faring in meeting the needs of their residents while building for the future.

The 2015 report details how Colorado is in the headlines as a leading state for job growth, business expansion, and creation of new business opportunities, based on a survey conducted among the state's municipalities last October.

CML's 2015 State of Our Cities & Towns survey results reveal that nine out of 10 Colorado municipalities invest in one or more programs that support or promote economic development and that 62 percent of Colorado municipalities report a better economy in their community in 2014 than the prior year. Among the larger cities, 94 percent report a better economy.

Two videos based on the report tell the story behind those headlines; describing how municipalities are the level of government most involved in economic development. Viewers will learn of the variety of programs, everything from tax incentives to special events, that cities and towns invest in to promote economic development.

CML is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization established in 1923 that represents the interests of 267 Colorado cities and towns. For more information on CML, visit www.cml.orgRead on...
