Welcome To Cañon City, Colorado

Welcome to Cañon City... your "gateway to adventure." Our community has a rich cultural heritage and interesting geologic history. We embrace our past and plan for an exciting future. Ours is a truly special community, with abundant recreational opportunities, vast open space from the plains to the Rocky Mountains, parks and trails, community events all year long, and of course the Arkansas River and the Royal Gorge. If you live here you know what I mean. If you are considering relocating your home or business, you will discover it for yourself. You will not be disappointed. I look forward to seeing you around town or out on the trail. Mayor Preston R. Troutman

Day 2 - Small Business Revolution

Small Business Revolution Fanatics and Supporters:

It is day two of eight and we are running a marathon.  Make sure that you remember to reach out to your networks, customers, vendors, and whoever else you can think of to vote for Cañon City.  Social media is a great tool but sometimes the best connections can happen face to face.  I was at the Downtown Business Alliance meeting last night and spoke about SBR strategy and the things that we still needed to do.  After the meeting I met Brian Monahan, who has never been to one of our meetings before, and he mentioned that his brother is an Instagram influencer with 80,000 followers.  It is easy to get stuck behind a computer asking people to vote but make sure you are still making the human connection too, you never know what doors might open. www.votecanoncity.com
