Once an agricultural and mining area, Jefferson County, Colorado is a thriving suburban, business, industrial, recreational and residential community. The county, formally organized in 1861 by the Colorado Territorial Legislature, takes the name of Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States.
Jefferson County is a place where the great plains meet the Rocky Mountains with some of the most magnificent scenery in the country. It features rolling grasslands and craggy rock formations, natural foothills, rugged mountains and tumbling mountain streams.
Jefferson County is filled with magnificent wonders only nature can provide. Not ignoring its agricultural and mining roots, Jefferson County has worked to create a delicate balance between that past while supporting a thriving business community and providing for safe neighborhoods.
The county's general boundaries include West 120th Avenue in Westminster on the north, Sheridan Boulevard on the east and Pike National Forest to the south. The county extends west into the mountains to meet Gilpin, Clear Creek and Park counties
Outdoor lovers have many Jefferson County Open Space Parks, three national forests and two state parks from which to choose.
Pike, Roosevelt and Arapahoe national forests, Golden Gate Canyon State Park and Chatfield State Recreation Area are all partially located in Jefferson County.
The county's nationally recognized Open Space program offers a variety of outdoor activities. See the Jeffco Open Space website for information about the many activities and amenities our Jefferson County Parks have to offer.
A plentiful mix of mom-and-pop shops and Fortune 500 companies are headquartered here. See our Business page to get more information about business opportunities.
Jefferson County is the fourth-largest county in Colorado. Its citizens make their homes on mountain tops as well as in suburban communities. The latest data was primarily derived from 2010 US Census, considered the baseline demographic data for population and housing estimates until the next decennial census occurs in 2020. For all of the information, see the Demographics page within the Planning and Zoning website.
