Top 15 Hot Jobs in Louisville CO

Updated on October 11, 2010

The Best Place to Live

As of 2009, Louisville's population is 18,800+ people, a slight decline since the year 2000. However, Money Magazine recommends this city as the Best Place to Live in America. It does not offer much room for increasing its population at less than 8 square miles of land, but it does offer a good education system, low crime rate, good standard of living and higher median family income when compared with the rest of the country.

The City of Louisville is near Boulder CO and Denver. Even though smaller in size than some other economically strong suburbs in American, Louisville has about 1700 acres of dedicated open, green space. Business growth is planned to occur in the Centennial Valley area and the office/industrial park called the Colorado Tech Center. Thus, additional growth in new jobs for Louisville is also planned by city officials in conjunction with business and educational/training facilities.

People like living in Louisiville because of its proximity to natural scenic sites and outdoor activities as well as because of its small-town atmosphere with metropolitan convenience. Louisville offers not only its own green space, but also 30 miles of hiking and bike trails. In addition, The Rocky Mountain National Park is under 60 minutes away by car and eight World-Class ski resorts are within a short driving distance as well. The clean air and dry climate most of the year are attractive to many residents.

Railroad Resurgence

Many towns in the MidWest and West in America began as railroad towns or mining communities. Louisville began as a mining town in the late 19th Century. When mining went into decline during the 1950s, the town became a residential community that could serve larger cities nearby, including Boulder, Denver, and Aurora.

Besides the Rocky Mountains, Louisville provides breathtaking veiws of the Flatiron Mountains and Indian Peaks. The Historic Downtown area is under constant planning and developmet by city fathers. The railroad did come through Colorado near Louisville afer mining took hold of the economy and Downtown Louisville is set to build a new station for modern rail transporation. Trains will run to Boulder and Denver.

      Thanks for the article, my husband has applied for several jobs in Colorado and I've never been sure if I waned to move there after a mini vacation in Boulder (long story), but today he applied for another in Denver. Your article makes it a bit more appealing :)

      Great hub. I lived in Pittsburgh, PA and Seattle, WA the years that each was voted best city to live in America. These 2 latest hubs strike a chord with the current world economic climate. My sister is back at school changing careers in her 50's. Great informational hub.

      Prosperous Blessings,
