Genesee, a gem tucked into Jefferson County Colorado!
Genesee, a gem tucked into Jefferson County Colorado, is a residential community where the gorgeous serenity of Colorado mountain living is meshed with all the luxuries and accessibilities afforded by the bustling city of Denver that is only about sixteen miles away. Genesee's single-family homes, condominiums and townhouses have been sensibly and artfully constructed on over 2,000 acres of awe-inspiring mountain property.
Genesee's superb planning has allowed the area to develop a series of small neighborhoods with a sense of community as well as privacy. It is a covenant-protected community where the developed environment harmoniously coexists with the area's natural setting. With 1,200 acres of dedicated open space on which over 12 miles of well maintained hiking trails sprawl, Genesee offers residents of all ages the opportunity to experience the great outdoors within an easy walk from their back door.
The Genesee community's abundant open space and common areas have been efficiently managed and maintained by the numerous neighborhood committees, who, along with The Genesee Foundation and Genesee's Homeowners' Association, have also built impressive recreational facilities. Genesee has three clubhouses, three playgrounds, two outdoor pools, four tennis courts, a racquetball court, an exercise room, and up-to-date meeting facilities. The 3,500 residents in this close-knit community enjoy the comfort and peace of mind of a twenty-four hour security patrol and a well-equipped fire station located within the city. For families of all sizes and ages, Genesee is truly "The Residential Community."

Genesee is renowned for its environmental conservation efforts. For over twenty years Genesee has practiced open space thinning for fire hazard reduction, improvement of forest health and enhancement of native plant and wildlife habitats. The board in charge of the ecosystem has collected an impressive array of scientific data on the entire community, the best fire specialists to point the way, an expert preeminent in the native plant field, a wildlife consultant, a manager with community forest management experience, and a reputation for good land stewardship. Genesee also has the best focused committees of well informed residents, organized by the Board and dedicated to doing their part in achieving high standards of ecosystem management as a whole, in addition to national Firewise status. The rewards of two decades of stewardship development translate not only into growing improvement in open space management, but also in heightened opportunities for gaining State and local grant support to bolster our efforts.
