Economic Development


  • Business owner survey: The committee created a business owner survey to gauge satisfaction with the town, how we might improve our relationship with their business, and what capital and infrastructure improvements might be of benefit.
  • Diversifying the tax base: The committee met with the Wheat Ridge Economic Development Director as well as the community development director and principal at a development firm to discuss ways to diversify the tax base and attract businesses to Mountain View.
  • Seeking to hire an economic development consultant: The committee worked extensively on drafting a request for proposals (RFP) for ad-hoc economic development services and met with potential economic development consultants.
  • Façade improvement programs: The committee spent time researching other municipal façade improvement programs and providing recommendations on what a town program might look like.


  • I would like to see our town diversify its tax base and offer businesses in town that residents might enjoy e.g., a coffee shop, a brewery, etc.
  • I would like to see increased and continued engagement between the town and our existing businesses.
  • I would like to see our business districts along W.44th and Sheridan Blvd. increase their beautification efforts; I would support the use of matching funds from the town to achieve this goal.
