Colorado's First Conservation Community
Designed to embrace the rural lifestyle of its surroundings, Independence is a single-family residential community that will preserve land and resources while providing opportunities to live in beautiful Elbert County, Colorado.
The strategically and carefully planned Independence community employs innovative conservation methods to preserve open space, water, energy, and other natural resources to directly benefit all residents of Elbert County.
Through smart, deliberate planning, and a diverse mix of home types, we're able to give a variety of buyers the opportunity to attain the dream of homeownership while preserving permanent open space and honoring the land and quality of life that makes Elbert County home. With a range of lot sizes and residential densities, Independence offers ideal housing options for families, teachers, government employees and first responders.
Space to Live
We offer the highest percentage of dedicated open space comparable to other master plan communities in Colorado. Over 433 acres will be preserved in a contiguous and natural state to encourage wildlife and migration throughout the community, while expansive setbacks from neighboring residences and local roads will reduce the community’s impact on current residents. Independence will also include a community center and preserved homestead to honor and share Elbert County’s proud history with future generations.

A higher standard of sustainability
Conservation is at the core of every decision that went into the design process of the Independence development. Independence will treat and recycle water at the highest level approved by the State of Colorado. Our community is configured to consume less water, energy, and other natural resources per family, while preserving large areas of undisturbed open space. Curved streets preserve community views and reduce vehicle speeds, while miles of trails and neighborhood pocket parks promote health, wellness and community connectivity.
