1 Minute Read

The groundbreaking ceremony for the Northwest Colorado Business Park was Wednesday. It’s just outside of Hayden, between Hwy 40 and Yampa Valley Regional Airport.

Bob Reese, Mayor Pro Tem of Hayden, said “This is all part of our forward plan. I believe being on the Council, I believe our responsibility isn’t only today and tomorrow, but we’ve got to look 20 years down the road, and this will take us 20 years down the road along with the housing projects that we’re doing. And this isn’t the end, it’s just the beginning.” Reese added that contractors are being used throughout the Yampa Valley. “This park belongs to everyone.”

The Northwest Colorado Business District is owned by the Town of Hayden. It will include 117.1 acres with 23 lots. The land is zoned for light industrial which allows for workforce housing. Access will be from Highway 40. It’s also 1.6 miles from a Union Pacific Railroad spur which is at the Xcel Energy Hayden Station. The Town of Hayden will build new water and sewer mains, and electrical lines.

Phase One will include 58 acres in development with 13 lots, and is expected to be finished by the end of the year.
