On June 27, 2006, the Board of Trustees adopted the following Vision Statement:
The Town Board of Trustees will proactively manage community needs to develop the Town of Bennett into one of the premier "rural town centers" of Colorado providing optimum levels of service to our citizens.
The Town of Bennett is a growing community on the eastern edge of the Metro Denver Region. The Town is conveniently located 25 minutes from Denver International Airport and 15 minutes from the Colorado Air and Space Port.
The Town was incorporated in 1930 and has steadily grown into a thriving and self-sustaining community within an excellent public school system, abundant parks and trails, and a growing hub for goods and services along the I-70 corridor. With recent capital investments, Bennett water and wastewater systems match the innovation and sophistication of the greater metropolitan area and provide reliable services to our community.
Today, Bennett is poised for the future with thoughtful planning efforts underway as the community moves into the future. We have a straightforward development review process that encourages economic development consistent with our goals and small town character.
