The City of Lone Tree [†] was incorporated in November 1995 and became a Home Rule City on May 5, 1998. At that time, it consisted of only 960 acres, or 1.5 square miles. A major impetus for incorporation was residents’ concerns relating to land use, the quality of development along the C-470 corridor, and their desire to have input over development decisions affecting their community.

Lone Tree’s incorporated boundaries encompass around 10-square miles. It is home to many shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities, significant corporate employers, small businesses, major medical facilities, quality residential neighborhoods, and a range of recreational, arts, and cultural amenities. What began as an incorporation effort by local neighbors and community leaders has evolved steadily into a thriving City that is, in many respects, a national model for responsible growth and development.
