Location Decisions

The Town of Erie Economic Development staff is happy to help you determine your site needs or identifying what sites are available and zoned for your type of business.  To get you started, here are a few things to consider:

  • Search the Town of Erie's Available Properties pages, or work with a commercial broker to identify potential locations.
  • If you are in need of a licensed broker to assist you with lease or sale there are numerous brokers serving the Erie area. Please visit Erie Chamber of Commerce – Member Listing and Metro North Chamber of Commerce for a listing of real estate brokers affiliated with these organizations.
  • Additional site search programs are available from Upstate Colorado Economic Development and Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation
  • Remember: before signing a contract verify the sites have the correct zoning for your business. When in doubt, call the Town of Erie Planning Division at 303-926-2770.
  • Do not assume that the existence of a similar business or past business at the site means your new business will be acceptable.
  • Share with Town staff what changes you will be making to the exterior of the property (i.e. signage) so that if any additional steps are required you can plan and budget as necessary.
  • Please contact the Town of Erie Building Division to review the existing and necessary permits your business will need. Do you plan on changing signage or making more than cosmetic improvements? You may need a permit.
  • Don't forget to contact the applicable utility company serving the property to establish service and billing.
