Prowers Economic Prosperity Seeks Info on Potential Land for Development

LAMAR, CO – Businesses look at numerous factors when considering potential locations for development and expansion; among them are quality of life, housing availability, utilities, and real estate offerings. Prowers Economic Prosperity (PEP) is working to ensure these requirements are easily met for potential economic growth opportunities.

A major challenge that currently exists in Prowers County is the lack of a comprehensive listing of real estate that is or could be available for development. This includes real estate that has already been developed and land suitable for projects. Land availabilities could be of any size, from one acre to full sections. PEP is seeking a complete list of such offerings county-wide, with or without buildings and any existing utilities and infrastructure.

There are two options available to potential sellers would like to take advantage of this opportunity. The first is that PEP assist the owner in online marketing of land and real estate. Most businesses that are considering relocation and/or expansion utilize online resources before contacting a community about locating. Therefore, it is advantageous to publish a wide variety of available locations with relevant details including price.

The second option is to contact PEP with available property that is held confidential and only released to potential businesses after negotiations begin. “We are very close to having several active prospects decide that Prowers County is where they want to be. What is holding us back is those businesses not being able to fully consider potential land investments due to not knowing what is available and not knowing what the true asking price is,” stated Aaron Leiker, PEP president. “The true asking price is key. It is crucial that we know the ‘YES Price’ – the price at which that if offered, no matter how high or low, the owner will sell.”

Because PEP is merely attempting to locate available properties for prospective buyers, PEP will not assist in any real estate transactions that may occur. Realtors are invited to list all of their properties. Contact Eric Depperschmidt, PEP executive director, at (719) 688-5564 or via e-mail at All information is kept confidential until realtors and/or land owners grant authority to release details.
