View Executive Summary
The rural Town of Center has a population of just under 2,200 residents and is situated in Rio Grande and Saguache County three and half hours southwest of Denver, Colorado. After facing stagnant population and development in the last several decades, six properties have been purchased and begun development along Center’s business district along Worth Street. Center now has plans to further invest in their second main street, Highway 112 to improve street conditions, address speeding issues, and elevate gateway signage to spur economic development within Worth Street’s business district as a part of the Town’s 2018 Economic Development Plan.
