Past, Present & Future
Pueblo West, a modern, planned community, was founded in 1969 by McCullough Properties, Inc., with the vision of building a community that would complement, and not obscure, the area’s sweeping vistas and natural scenery. Characterized by vast open spaces and a low-density population, Pueblo West was designed so as to preserve its uninhibited wilderness while simultaneously accommodating and encouraging growth and development.
The planners of Pueblo West wisely made provisions for its future development, designating specific areas for single family homes, apartments and condominiums, businesses and services, mobile homes, light industry, recreational facilities, parks and open spaces, in order to guide its growth according to a comprehensive plan.
As such, Pueblo West combines private residential areas with nearby commercial and recreational destinations, anticipating the needs of its future population. Pueblo West is often referred to as “Colorado’s Country City,” owing to its pleasant mixture of modern conveniences set among unspoiled natural surroundings. The founders’ vision is realized in the variety and cohabitation of types of development. Shops, services, commercial centers, schools, apartments, homes, and light industry are all ideally juxtaposed to the benefit of its resident.
The town’s planners took into account such factors as convenience, privacy, town utility, and commercial potential in laying out the community, also making allowances for growth and flexibility. Furthermore, the entire community is inspiringly set among the area’s spectacular terrain. Residents enjoy a perfectly functional community, complete with commercial centers and convenient public services, as well as an accessible natural environment, which lends itself to fishing, hunting, water sports, skiing, and innumerable other outdoor recreations.
Today, Pueblo West has a thriving economy, fueled by industry and tourism. Residents enjoy top-notch public services, and the same open spaces, beautiful landscapes, and climate that first drew settlers hundreds of years ago, and inspired its founders to establish it as a Colorado haven. Pueblo West’s timeless features are balanced with ample modern conveniences, making it an ideal place both to live in and visit.
