It’s a great day to be in Lone Tree!

The city’s motto could not be any truer.In a city of less than 13,000 residents and a total area of 1.7 square miles, we can safely tout the Home Rule Municipality in Douglas County, south of Denver,  a reckoning force of a neighborhood. Small but incredible!

The city of Lone Tree is a business-friendly, family-oriented urban place located at the junctions of highways C/E 470 and I-25. It is a highly educated area making it an ideal place to start, relocate or expand a business. The favorable geographic location of this city being just minutes from the Centennial Airport, the Tech Center and Park Meadows Mall are a booster to Lone Tree’s economy. Add to that, the Denver International Airport and Downtown Denver are a mere 25 minutes away. Business is good, as the saying goes. 

In a resident survey conducted by the National Research Center in 2012, Lone Tree residents continue to experience a high quality of life in the community. Since 2006, rating of “excellent” or “good” has remained consistent and fared much higher than ratings of residents from other cities. The most favorable feedback are given to Lone Tree as a place to live and raise children. Although residents felt that the population in their area is growing a tad too fast, most expressed the same sentiments of happy to stay where they are and even recommending Lone Tree as a place to live.
