At Home With Big Business

On a drive through Colorado's Central Plains, people are often mesmerized by the rolling meadows, Ponderosa Pines and roadside stops chock-full of country charm. You'd never guess from the scenery that Colorado's Central Plains is so ripe for big business. Our counties are checkered with commercial and industrial sites. They offer almost unlimited land, prime demographics and strategic locations for those ready to get down to business.

What's more, Denver and Colorado Springs are just one hour's drive from parts of our region. We're also the state's second-highest entry and exit point. Add to this our proximity to major railways, the Colorado Springs Airport and Denver International Airport, and Colorado's Central Plains makes perfect sense for transportation centers.

There are several forces that drive our economy, including:

  • Over six million barrels of oil extracted annually in this four-county region
  • World's largest helium gas plant
  • Leading production of winter wheat, sunflower, corn-for-grain, beans, as well as other agricultural products
