Community Development


Lamar, Colorado is located in Prowers county in the southeast corner of the state.  Lamar is a resilient community that has survived booms and busts, good times and bad, and for over 130 years, many of the founding pioneer families still have deep roots in Prowers County. New families that have arrived since the founding pioneers are invested in taking up roots in the rich heritage of our resilient community and creating a future for generations to come.  




Enriching our community with business expansions, new businesses and incoming residents ensures we are building a better tomorrow for the future. Community Development can assist the City, its developers, businesses, and residents with areas of growth and expansion in coordination with Lamar’s Building Department. 

In partnership with Prowers Economic Prosperity, Prowers County, the City of Lamar and Lamar Redevelopment Authority we welcome applications for assistance.
