Mountain View, Colorado

The Town of Mountain View is a home rule municipality located in Jefferson County, Colorado, United States. Mountain View is situated west of, and adjacent to, the city and county of Denver. As of the 2010 census, the population of Mountain View was 507.

During the gold rush years, the land of the present site of Mountain View was owned by the Yule family. In 1879 John Brishen Walker purchased 1,200 acres of land in the Berkeley area for $1,000. He added to the land parcel until he acquired 1,600-1,700 acres which he then named Berkeley Farm.

Eventually, Walker sold the land for $325,000 to a Kansas City syndicate who hired the investment firm of Carleton Ellis and John McDonough to develop a new suburb. The new development was named the Berkeley Annex which extended from Sheridan Boulevard west to Fenton Street and 41st Avenue north to 44th Avenue. Ellis and McDonough secured Plat T3S, R69W on December 1888. This area became Mountain View, Colorado.

On August 8, 1904, a petition containing fifty-eight signatures to incorporate as the town of Mountain View was filed in Jefferson County Court. On September 6, 1904 the election for incorporation was held at the L.Hanawall Store, 4301 Sheridan Boulevard. With fifty-eight ballots in favor and forty-eight ballots against the proposal, the Town of Mountain View was established.

Mountain View became a home-rule municipality in 1972 with a Mayor-Council form of government. All Council members are elected at large. The Town Council meets the second Monday of the month at 6:30 PM at the Town Hall located at 4176 Benton Street.
