A map of the United States of America with the State of Colorado highlighted.

The U.S. State of Colorado currently has 272 active incorporated municipalities, comprising 197 towns, 73 cities, and two consolidated city and county governments.[1][2] There are five types of municipal government in Colorado: consolidated city and county, home rule municipality, statutory city, statutory town, and territorial charter municipality.

Municipal government

Colorado municipalities operate under one of five types of municipal governing authority.[3][4]

Consolidated city and county

The City and County of Denver is the more populous of the two consolidated city and county governments in the state of Colorado.

In the State of Colorado, only Denver and Broomfield have consolidated city and county governments:

Home rule municipality

The City of Colorado Springs is the most populous home rule municipality in the state of Colorado.

Colorado has 61 cities and 35 towns that are home rule municipalities:

The Town of Georgetown is the only municipality that still operates under a charter granted by the Territory of Colorado:

Legal distinctions

Colorado law makes relatively few distinctions between a city and a town.[3][4] A Home Rule Municipality may declare itself either a city or a town. In general, cities are more populous than towns, although the towns of Castle Rock and Parker have more than 50,000 residents each, while the City of Black Hawk has fewer than 150 residents.

The City of Central is the only Colorado municipality that does not place its full place name at the end of its municipal name. The towns of Garden City, Lake City, Orchard City, and Sugar City are statutory towns despite the word "city" at the end of their name. The municipality of Creede uses the official title "City of Creede" despite its status as a Colorado statutory town.

Neither village nor civil township is a type of civil division in the State of Colorado, although the cities of Cherry Hills Village and Greenwood Village and the towns of Log Lane Village, Mountain Village, and Snowmass Village have the word "village" at the end of their names. Several resort communities use the word "village" to describe their central business district.

Nineteen Colorado municipalities currently extend into two counties, but only the cities of Aurora and Littleton currently extend into three counties.
