Growing Smart in Superior
Superior traces its roots to coal mining days and was first settled in 1861 by William C. Hake, a farmer. He discovered coal on his property, claiming there was "none superior in the state", and gave the town its name. During its heyday, Superior boasted 400 residents, a school, church, livery stable, three saloons, two pool halls, a general store, a barbershop and two boarding houses. In 1945, the town suffered a serious blow when the Industrial Mine, which employed 200, closed. By 1950, only 250 residents remained.
Residential and Business Growth
Interest in the area between Denver and Boulder continues to grow as due the cities in this region. Superior is located southeast of Boulder, off the Superior/Louisville interchange on Hwy 36. Residential development and growing business opportunities has helped the population grow to nearly 12,500. Superior, which is largely residential, sees continued growth in the Superior Marketplace Shopping Center.
Focused on the Environment
The city plans to continue to focus on commercial and retail development as well residential homes and multi-family units. The city is proud of its 594 acres of parks and open space and over 27 miles of trails. The city is working diligently to expand environmentally sound initiatives to become a community focused on the environment and healthy residents.
