Lafayette, Colorado

The City of Lafayette is essentially adjacent to Louisville, CO slightly to the east and north of Louisville. It's a perfect location for local jobs and traveling to nearby Boulder, Denver, Broomfield, Louisville, Superior and Erie.


MY TAKE ON THIS NEIGHBORHOOD:


Values continue to climb. Lafayette is a rather diverse community. We can find homes in almost any price range, and the variance in density, age, and quality of homes means there's something for just about any budget. Areas that are popular in Lafayette where I'm seeing buyers asking to look are Blue Heron Estates, Coal Creek Village, Cross Creek, South Point, Hawk Ridge Estates, Heron Lake Meadows, and Willow Creek, among others. When I run a search for you, with your personal criteria, we'll see what areas work best for your needs!


HISTORY:


The original town of Lafayette was platted in 1889 by Mary E. Miller after she found a rich coal seam on her east Boulder County ranch. Several historic local businesses and


organizations attest to the prominence of agriculture in Lafayette. The nearby Boulder Valley Grange, begun in 1894, met in the one-room Davidson School that also served as church and community center.


Cattle ranching was a leading agricultural activity. One of the earliest operations was that of Adolph Waneka, who grazed cattle in the Boulder County foothills in summer and at Lafayette in winter.


WHAT’S NEW TODAY:


McStain Neighborhoods is back and at it again, completing what's called Indian Peaks South. This area is the last portion of the well-known community called Indian Peaks, and it sits just north of the Steel Ranch community in Louisville. Prices range from the mid $500's to the mid $700's. The majority of Indian Peaks is a master-planned community surrounding the Indian Peaks golf course. McStain reorganized and resumed building recently, and homes are selling very quickly in the final phase of Indian Peaks at the south west corner of 95th and Baseline Road.


The newest single-family home community is the Trails at Coal Creek being built by Meritage Homes and Richmond Homes, priced from the mid $500's and up.


LOCAL HIGHLIGHTS:


There are about 26,000 residents within just a little over 9 square miles.


The City of Lafayette is a Home Rule city for which the State does NOT collect local sales or use taxes. The sales tax rate is 3.50%. The combined local sales/use tax rate for applicable sales in the City of Lafayette is 8.25%.
