The Board of County Commissioners agenda for the week of March
Business in Pueblo County
Pueblo has a low cost of doing business – among the lowest in America – which is a key reason why more than 50 companies have located here in recent years. Pueblo serves as the southern boundary for the state's major business growth corridor, better known as the Front Range of the Rockies. Historically a transportation junction, the city lies at the crossroads of two major highways – Interstate 25, (north/south), and U.S. Highway 50 (east/west).
While steel is still a major industry in Pueblo, alternative energy sources are a growing source of jobs. A number of scientific studies list Pueblo as the state's best place for solar energy, and the European company Vestas chose Pueblo for the largest wind turbine tower manufacturing plant in the world. The community works with industry in a public-private partnership to advance wind energy companies by fostering a conducive environment for facility operations.
