These types of requests are also considered on a case-by-case basis and require approval by the Board of County Commissioners. For additional information on incentives, please call 303-660-7460.

Other incentives may be available through the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT), such as performance-based incentive payments to qualifying companies.  This may include state income tax credits, sales and use tax exemptions, and customized job-training grants.  OEDIT also provides financing tools for businesses.
