How a Colorado City Revamped Its Entire Permitting Process

About Fort Morgan

Located 80 miles northeast of the Denver metro area is the charming city of Fort Morgan. With a growing population of about 12,000, the local economy consists mainly of agriculture practices. A thriving business environment, easy access to the Denver area, and proximity to the Rocky Mountains make Fort Morgan a great place to live and work.
