Happy #CLGMonday! Today, we'd like to congratulate the town of Cañon City, Colorado! Please join us in welcoming a new member to the Certified Local Government (#CLG) community!

"First settled in 1859, the town of Cañon City, Colorado, was incorporated in 1872 after a brief downturn in population growth during the Civil War. This resurgence of the town brought diverse developments to the local economy. Mining, agriculture, manufacturing, tourism, and the Colorado Territorial prison have all helped to shape and define the landscape and heritage of this small rural community. Today, Cañon City’s historic downtown and old residential neighborhoods offer treasured glimpses into this town’s rich history."
