Community Development

Emphasis on “Community!”

Northern Colorado has experienced explosive growth over the past decade.  The need for affordable housing has made towns like Severance very desirable places for developers to invest.  The various stages of this fast-changing landscape, and the effect it has on our community, is managed by the Community Development Department.

The department helps guide the Town of Severance, its citizens, and the private sector towards a better vision for the Town’s future.  From residential neighborhoods, parks, trails, and open space to commercial development for both retail and office space, the Community Development staff works with developers, landowners, residents and the Town Board of Trustees to ensure that all development in the area will add to the economic vitality and quality of life residents seek in our community.
