Broomfield County

Broomfield County-


Broomfield is a consolidated city and county in the Northern Front Range. It sits conveniently between two of the state’s most populous and best-known cities – Denver, approximately 18 miles to the south from the heart of Broomfield, and Boulder, roughly 13 miles heading northwest. A rapid-bus transit service brings you to Downtown Denver in about 20 minutes and to Boulder in half an hour.

Broomfield is also bordered by Weld County to the northeast, the rest of Boulder County to the northwest, Adams County to the southeast, and Jefferson County to the southwest.A planned community in an ideal location, Broomfield boasts a strong job market anchored by high-revenue, global players in the technology and communications industries. Broomfield’s consistent growth trajectory has resulted in a spot on’s 2016 list of the “Best Places to Live” in the United States.

Broomfield is home to a population of around 66,000 (as of 2016 estimates), and has a total area of just over 33 square miles. Once a part of Boulder County, it incorporated in 1961 and grew as it annexed areas in Jefferson, Adams, and Weld counties. To help residents get better access to services, a constitutional amendment to create a consolidated city and county was passed in 1998 and Broomsfield officially became Colorado’s 64th county in 2001.

While the digital frontier is a crucial factor in its emergence, Broomfield remains closely tied to its agricultural, small-town roots. Residents have a strong sense of local unity, identity, and pride. Plus, with 7,000 acres of open space and the peaks and wilderness areas of the Rocky Mountains nearby, there are plenty of opportunities to embrace the rustic lifestyle of the American West.
