Cherry Hills Village attracts celebrities and professionals -- both singles and families. It is a verdant, country-estate suburb bordering the southern edge of Denver and the eastern boundary of Englewood. Large lot sizes and well-kept landscapes give this city of 6 square miles and about 6,000 residents a well-groomed, rural atmosphere.
In 1938, land developers were interested in commercializing the area then known as "Country Homes" near Cherry Hills Country Club. At the time, the Cherry Hills Village website notes that much of the land was "wide open fields" occasionally sprinkled with small homes.
At the end of the Great Depression, many of the area's properties were available for the price of back taxes. However, that didn't keep area residents from fighting back against development and winning state approval of land-use zoning in unincorporated areas to protect against unwanted uses. In 1945, the area incorporated to thwart a plan concerning development of a small craft airport just south of what is now South University Boulevard and East Quincy Avenue.
During its first year as a city, Cherry Hills Village had no budget and its total assessed valuation was a bit more than $900,000. Eventually, the city ran on a budget so small that many municipal functions ran out of private homes.
Today, Cherry Hills Village properties remain semi-rural due to a stalwart city government that has prevailed against commercial development. Although the city would have a park-like atmosphere even if it didn't have recreational lands, it maintains and is developing a number of small parks, including ones with trails for horseback riding. One park under development is Quincy Farm, a nearly 18-acre-parcel south of East Quincy Avenue that straddles the High Line Canal.
