Main article: State of Colorado

The U.S. state of Colorado currently has 271 incorporated municipalities, comprising 196 towns, 73 cities, and two consolidated city and county governments.[1][2]

Municipal government[edit]

Colorado municipalities operate under one of five types of municipal governing authority.[3][4]

Consolidated city and county[edit]

The City and County of Denver is the more populous of the two consolidated city and county governments in the state of Colorado.

In the State of Colorado, only Denver and Broomfield have consolidated city and county governments:

Home rule municipality[edit]

The City of Colorado Springs is the most populous home rule municipality in the state of Colorado.

Colorado has 61 cities and 35 towns that are home rule municipalities:

Statutory city[edit]

The historic City of Leadville, pictured here in the mid 20th century, is a statutory city.

Colorado has 12 statutory cities:

  • Colorado statutory cities operate under Title 31, Article 1, Section 203 and Article 4, Section 100 or Section 200 of the Colorado Revised Statutes. Statutory cities have an elected mayor and a city council composed of the mayor and two members elected from each ward. A statutory city may petition to reorganize as a Section 200 statutory city with an appointed city manager and a city council with two members elected from each ward and one member elected at large. The mayor may be the city council member elected at large or the city council may appoint a mayor.

Statutory town[edit]

The farming Town of Paonia is a statutory town.

Colorado has 160 statutory towns:

  • Colorado statutory towns operate under Title 31, Article 1, Section 203 and Article 4, Part 3 of the Colorado Revised Statutes. Statutory towns have an elected mayor and a board of trustees composed of the mayor and four or six additional members elected at large.

Territorial charter municipality[edit]

The historic Town of Georgetown is the only territorial charter municipality remaining in the state of Colorado.

The Town of Georgetown is the only municipality that still operates under a charter granted by the Territory of Colorado:

Legal distinctions[edit]

Colorado law makes relatively few distinctions between a city and a town.[3][4] A Home Rule Municipality may declare itself either a city or a town. In general, cities are more populous than towns, although the towns of Castle Rock and Parker have more than 48,000 residents each, while the City of Black Hawk has fewer than 120 residents.

The City of Central is the only Colorado municipality that does not place its full place name at the end of its municipal name. The towns of Garden City, Lake City, Orchard City, and Sugar City are statutory towns despite the word "city" at the end of their name. The municipality of Creede uses the official title "City of Creede" despite its status as a Colorado statutory town.

Village and civil township are not civil divisions in the State of Colorado, although the cities of Cherry Hills Village and Greenwood Village and the towns of Log Lane Village, Mountain Village, and Snowmass Village have the word "village" at the end of their names. Several resort communities use the word "village" to describe their central business district.

In Colorado, a municipality may extend into multiple counties.
