About Erie

With its small-town feel and progressive outlook, Erie offers a contemporary pace, close-knit neighborhoods, and a sense of community. Residents, businesses, and city leaders value a city that is a great place to live, work, and play.

The former Colorado coal town was named after the port city in northwestern Pennsylvania after first being settled by a man from Erie, Pennsylvania. It has seen an increase in new homes, businesses, and families due to the construction of new housing and commercial malls.

Erie has grown, yet still maintains a charming rural vibe, despite its mining and agricultural roots.

A sense of community, caring neighbors, and a comforting closeness – these are just a few reasons why Erie provides a genuine small-town feel. The historic Briggs Street is a downtown treasure, offering a mix of contemporary establishments nestled among traditional favorites – fine art, restaurants, and shops. Erie’s green practices are well known, and the city has an interconnecting trail system that runs entirely through the town, and every resident lives within a mile of a park. The massive community center has a thermal solar system installation, and the spacious High Plains Library serves the dynamic population as a community hub.

Enjoy Erie’s panoramic views, as well as several community events. There’s the Erie Town Fair and Hot Air Balloon Festival. Or come enjoy the summer concerts and Bark in the Park with your four-legged friend. Lastly, there are the Halloween and Independence Day celebrations. With a new championship-level golf course, this area offers a high quality of life for residents of all backgrounds. There is no doubt that Erie offers a lot to its residents – it is an active, eclectic community that values living life to the fullest.

The city of Erie sits on the Boulder-Weld county line, near Boulder, Denver, Broomfield’s high-tech corridor, and is adjacent to Longmont, Louisville, and Lafayette. With this city, you will be able to access everything that Colorado’s Front Range has to offer.
