Well it’s official, Greeley has been named in the top ten of the fastest growing areas in the nation, coming in at #8 according to the US Census Bureau! From July 2013-July 2014 Greeley had a growth rate of 2.6 percent. But for those of us who live here, that should come as no surprise. In an interview with Mayor Tom Norton at the end of last year, we learned just why Greeley is booming:

Economic Growth
  • Wonderful agricultural/cattle/oil & gas economy with the best economy in the state
  • Features agricultural & cattle industries which employ vast numbers of employees such as:
    • JBS: A leading processor of beef, pork and lamb in the U.S.
    • Montera Cattle Company LLC: A leading cattle feeder in Northern Colorado
    • Leprino Foods Co: The largest manufacturer of mozzarella cheese in the world
    • Aurora Organic Dairy Plant: The leading producer of private-brand organic milk and butter for U.S. retailers
    • Envirotech: Environmental services for transportation/pest control/ice & snow control
  • These industries provide a stable economy in Weld County, but it’s not just farmers, cattle & cheese. Northern Colorado is also known for having some of the best medical facilities around.
Medical Community
  • Northern Colorado Medical Center (Banner Health): Recognized as one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals
  • Kaiser Permanente: The state’s largest nonprofit health plan & have made significant donations to Weld County
  • These organizations, as well as many others in the region, offer the highest quality medical systems & full service facilities for Northern Colorado, Southern Wyoming & Nebraska. Greeley has also been actively improving the quality of life outside of the medical world with its community revitalization.
Downtown Revitalization
  • Over 40 new businesses have opened which contribute to Greeley’s ranking in Forbes as being #2 in job growth as well as #20 best places for business and careers in the nation.
  • Grant money is available to assist owners in opening their own businesses
  • A partnership with the University of Northern Colorado was designed to help improve area around the university, improvements to housing to students, parks, recreations, arts, sports, music, performing arts. Mayor Norton stated: “We have the best performing and visual arts department this side of the Mississippi.”
  • This revitalization includes all of downtown and showcases local artwork, statues, murals, and more for the beautification of downtown
  • More parks per capita than any other city in Colorado which includes the Poudre Trail for running, biking & walking
  • Continuous improvements will ensure the continuation of a beautiful and quality way of life for Northern Colorado
Oil & Gas Boom
  • Due to the constant development and improvement of technology in the oil & gas industry, our economy will continue to thrive
  • Horizontal drilling provides stability & more jobs
  • Oil & Gas Businesses continue to thrive
    • Mineral Resources: Privately held oil and natural gas producer with specialized systems to efficiently acquire, develop, permit, drill and produce valuable reserves beneath cities and communities
    • Synergy Resources: A domestic oil and natural gas exploration and production company whose primary production comes from wells in the Wattenberg Field
  • Aims Community College has also been a key training source for the oil & gas industry

With all this production, revitalization, beautification, community involvement and growth, who can dispute that Greeley is one of the greatest places to live?
