Conservation Community

The strategically and carefully planned Independence community employs innovative conservation methods to preserve open space, water, energy, and other natural resources to directly benefit all residents of Elbert County.

Space to Live

Independence offers the highest percentage of dedicated open space comparable to other master plan communities in Colorado. Over 433 acres will be preserved in a contiguous and natural state to encourage wildlife and migration throughout the community, while expansive setbacks from neighboring residences and local roads will reduce the community’s impact on current residents.
