The most recent hoopla is centered around the proposed Superior Town Center which is to be generally located near what most local folks know as the area near McCaslin and the Boulder turnpike.
This is an area which includes Superior Ice, Superior Liquor, and Old Chicago… and of course the adjacent vacant land which runs between Highway 36 on the north, the gated portion of Rock Creek to the south, McCaslin Boulevard on the west, and the historic Superior cemetery to the east.
Whether it’s a bucolic residential lifestyle, genuine suburban living within an easy commute to shopping and work, or another reason, it seems Superior continues to be a destination in high demand for home buyers.
Even without the influx of earlier anticipated job growth from ConocoPhillips, this area is doing well; real estate values are steady, interest rates are low, and home sales are at an all-time high.

The last bit of info on the Town of Superior website provides some links to these diagrams and descriptions, and the information seems to be a bit dated.
In an effort to stay “green” the Town of Superior Recreation Guide has gone digital!

Richmond Homes has proposed to build 38 new single family homes on a tract of land that is currently zoned commercial. That’s the first hurdle; getting the town to approve re-zoning the land for residential.
You may remember a controversy a year or more ago about a ‘land swap’ and people getting up in arms over proposed development of the original middle school location in the south part of Rock Creek near Torreys Peak Dr. and Indiana.
There was once a proposed land swap where Richmond American homes might have developed a handful of homes on that location, in exchange for their ownership of the McCaslin & Coalton location.
Massive controversy streaked through the community and the town board over this issue as debate roiled about whether the town board could approve a land purchase from the Boulder Valley School District on Indiana, then sell or swap the land for the parcel at Coalton & McCaslin.
In the end, not much changed, and the land near Eldorado K-8 on Indiana will become the property of the Town of Superior in short order anyway according to the agreement between the town and BVSD.
Since BVSD opted to build a K-8 instead of a separate middle school building several years ago, there has been a large parcel of vacant, unused land in the middle of the southern portion of Rock Creek.
Now, some folks are excited, and some are anxious and differing opinions and desires float about the community over this new idea of land development on the corner of Coalton & McCaslin.
