Greeley, CO

One of the first planned communities in the United States, Greeley, Colorado, was founded in 1870 through the patronage of journalist Horace Greeley. However, the famous newspaperman is said to have visited his namesake city only once. This processing and agricultural center near the Cache la Poudre River was first incorporated in 1885; since then, the Weld County city has grown to accommodate a population of nearly 90,000 people.

Greeley's diverse industries and especially its agribusiness, which produces livestock, sugar beets and potatoes, give the city a high degree of economic stability. Major employers include the Swift and Co. beef-processing plant, North Colorado Medical Center, and the state government of Colorado, which maintains the University of Northern Colorado.

This goal has been met through retail promotional activity, advertising, and special events.
