Founded in 1887, Brighton is one of Colorado’s oldest communities. As a rural county seat, growth occurred slowly until Denver International Airport and the E-470 Beltway. Now we’re supporting that growth with reinvestment and redevelopment in our original downtown and adjacent areas. Come to Brighton today and you’ll find more than $430 million in new retail, residential and commercial development. New downtown boutiques, restaurants and specialty stores, and year-round cultural events. Rail-served sites for office workers and energy firms.
This activity has also helped increase our community’s tax base, benefiting the Greater Brighton Fire District, School District 27J and other public entities.
Brighton is now one of America’s 100 Best Communities for Young People. We can’t imagine a better measure of our success. Urban renewal has helped us create a leading sustainable community, while laying the groundwork for another 125 years.
Be part of our future. More opportunities are a click away.
