Pueblo West is largely a self-supporting community of over 27,000 residents. This unincorporated community of Pueblo County is served by the Pueblo West Metropolitan District for its fire and emergency medical services, parks and recreation, streets and roads, water and waste water needs. Pueblo West residents have outstanding elementary, middle and high schools provided by School District #70; a quality, 18 hole golf course; two industrial parks; numerous commercial developments and wide open spaces. Originally designed to accommodate 60,000 residents and businesses, and with water rights to serve the residents at build-out, you’ll find plenty of room to live and grow in Pueblo West.
The community of Beulah is nestled in the foothills of the Wet Mountain Range some 20 miles west of Pueblo. For most of this century, Beulah has been a summer retreat and location for second homes. More recently, homes are being occupied year-round, and being built on smaller ranchettes for residents who enjoy the short commute to Pueblo for employment and shopping. The area now features an elementary school, a community center, several stores and commercial businesses and, of course, the Pueblo Mountain Park. Growth in Beulah is limited by water availability and the desire of the residents to maintain its rural atmosphere.
Colorado City is located 25 miles southwest of Pueblo in the Greenhorn Valley and rests in the foothill topography at the base of the 12,000-foot Greenhorn Mountain. Many of its services are provided through a metropolitan district and a recreation district. The community has a 27-hole golf course, a middle school, a large community park and an industrial park, all of which give it an area with tremendous growth potential for development. Currently, Colorado City has a population in excess of 2,200.
The small mountain community of Rye is the only incorporated town in western Pueblo County. The area immediately surrounding Rye has numerous ranches, retirement homes, second homes and residences of persons who commute to Pueblo to work and shop. The town has an elementary school and the smaller of two county high schools, as well as the Rye Mountain Park. Rye can be compared to Beulah in that its growth potential is limited by available services. At the present time, the community has a population of around 150 people.
