Situated smack dab in the middle of the three major northern Colorado communities (Ft. Collins, Greeley, and Loveland) is Windsor. Once a sleepy little town with one little main street, few services, and limited housing, Windsor has become a boom-town a going concern. Its population has doubled in the past decade and is projected to double again in the next decade.
This unprecedented growth is a result of an established and thriving business community led by large corporations such as Eastman Kodak, Tenneco Packaging, University Photo Products and ICON industries, which have all found a home in Windsor, as well as a solid base of small local businesses. Also the quality and value of housing has led to an influx of residents who prefer a smaller, quieter community to live in and can easily commute to work in nearby towns.
