History & History Related Items

Superior history:

Coal mining was the major force in Superior's history. In fact, the "Superior" quality of coal from the mine led to the name of the Town when it was incorporated in 1904. When the Industrial Mine closed in 1945, many people moved out of the area and Superior evolved into a quiet ranching and farming community. The Town's population hovered around 250 until the 1990's when the Rock Creek Ranch development boosted the population to 10,000. Development in Superior is guided by a Comprehensive Plan, updated in 2001, which projects the population at build-out to be 15,400.

Superior attractions:

Superior has 170 acres of parks and open space and 6.7 miles of trails. Superior is also fortunate to border 900 acres of Boulder County and Boulder City Open Space.

Superior balances small town charm exemplified in our 4th of July neighborhood parade with big town services such as water and wastewater utilities, police and fire protection, parks and recreation, and more. Although primarily a bedroom community, Superior's largest development, the Superior Marketplace, attracts a variety of businesses from Costco and SuperTarget to locally owned small shops and services. The Marketplace will also feature an extensive public art collection, which will showcase Superior's rich heritage and promising future. Contact Superior Town Hall at (303) 499-3675 for more information.
