Lafayette Colorado Promenade Approved Erie and Lafayette continue to ‘arm-wrestle’

Lafayette Tractor SupplyThe City of Lafayette approved the “Lafayette Promenade” project recently, and it is among several developments in the area near Hwy 287 and Arapahoe Road.

Tractor Supply Co will be potentially one of the first tenants since it’s the first tenant site plan the Council approved.

This project and several others including the Silo Subdivision on the Weems family property just west of the Lafayette Promenade and Nine Mile Corner just east of 287 and east of Silo and NE of Promenade are coming at a confluence of what’s become a high-traffic and rapidly developing area over the last few years.

These projects don’t come without controversy as the town of Erie and the City of Lafayette arm wrestle constantly over various proposed residential and commercial developments at these crossroads.

Lafayette ProjectsThe Lafayette Promenade project and its first proposed tenant, Tractor Supply harkens back to the roots of this formerly very rural area. Two miles to the south there was a farm and ranch supply business near the bowling alley which closed in the early 2000’s.

That location was taken over by a church, which later moved north into the former Walmart location when that commercial / retail area was spiraling downward. Within short order, Jax Mercantile opened in the former Ace Hardware building, and then soon took over the former farm supply/church facility once again bringing Farm and Ranch supply business back to the area.

Meanwhile at this junction line between Erie and Lafayette, Erie has plans to bring a Lowe’s and a King Soopers grocery into the area.

As these areas have grown into each other and much more residential developing over the last 20 years, it’s clear that more commercial/retail can be sustainable and will be financially beneficial to both Erie and Lafayette.
