Above all else, I want Cañon City to be a great place to raise a family, full of opportunity, growth, recreation, and safety.

Ashley Smith, Mayor Cañon City, Colorado

I left Denver to take a job in Cañon City and don't want to leave this place! I can hike at lunch or be at some of the most beautiful places within minutes. No traffic to work and the housing is way more affordable! Lots of local dining and shopping in town with big city shopping only 30 minutes away if I ever need it.
