“Our experience working with both elected officials and City staff has been very positive. Both the Community Development Department and the Public Works Department at the City of Wheat Ridge have consistently provided a timely and fair review of our project applications. Additionally, Renewal Wheat Ridge has been particularly instrumental to the success of our projects. Elected officials have been supportive of our projects and we’ve found City staff to be knowledgeable, courteous and fair. Together, both City staff and the elected officials have positioned Wheat Ridge as a great place to do business and have created an environment which attracts development,” Tyler Downs, Principal, Wazee Partners


“Working with The City of Wheat Ridge is a delight. City officials are really helpful and go the extra mile to get you answers. They make sure you’re not going down the wrong track and cut off any issues on the front end. The City takes a forward thinking approach to make the process easier and less bureaucratic, which is what we’re always looking for in the world of commercial real estate.” Ian Elfner, Commercial Real Estate Broker, NavPoint Real Estate Group


“The City of Wheat Ridge is extremely collaborative. In my project, I dealt with city administrators, the planning office, urban renewal and the mayor and everyone across the board was trying to figure out how to get a deal done. They’re very good to work with. It’s safe to say that I am a very happy customer.” Richard Oneslager, president, Balmar Management Group


“Wheat Ridge is a great business location: it's growing quickly and attracting engaged, enthusiastic residents. Plus, it's central/West in the Denver metro area, so for access to downtown Denver and LoHi/Highlands, it's perfect. When we started looking in town, my first points of contact were Steve Art, the City’s Economic Development Manager, and Britta Fisher, executive director of Wheat Ridge 2020. After discussions with them, I knew Wheat Ridge was my top choice. Not only did Steve have great information on available locations, he was able to connect me directly with the right folks in the city building department and the fire district. And when I met Britta, we hopped in her car for a driving tour where she pointed out places that might be a good fit, and told me what had been going on recently with the properties. The City of Wheat Ridge was a good partner as we worked to get Helliemae's open. In particular, the building and fire departments were willing to engage early, and they provided consistent direction during our project. I'd tell any business owner to look at Wheat Ridge.” Ellen Daehnick, owner, Helliemae’s
