Windsor has a rich history deeply rooted in German Russian heritage. Located 60 miles due north of Denver, Windsor is centrally located between the cities of Greeley on the east, Fort Collins on the west, and Loveland on the southwest. This small, unique and progressive community provides a quality way of life to nearly 20,000 people.
Once touted as a predominately rich farming community, today Windsor includes a varied base of employers both large and small including Hexel and Ice Energy, Kodak, Owens Illinois, and Vestas, an international wind turbine factory.
Average median age in Windsor is 33.3 and the average household income is $80,000 according to the 2009 Census.
With its central location and three-mile proximity to I-25, Windsor has seen a rapid urban growth in the past 20 years. The Town of Windsor has developed a Comprehensive Strategic Plan to support the future growth of Windsor and keep it a viable and action-oriented community. The town supports 25 developed and undeveloped parks including Main Park, Boardwalk Park, Chimney Park, Eastman Park, and Diamond Valley. The Windsor Community Recreation Center offers classes, events, athletic leagues, senior recreation, and adaptive recreational activities for people with disabilities. The Firehouse Museum and the Art & Heritage Center exhibit a wealth of historical information and artifacts from the past. The Windsor Community Playhouse produces several theatrical productions each year ranging from Broadway hits to children’s shows.
Education is at the heart of this growing community. Served by three school districts, Windsor-Severance School District, Thompson Valley School District and Poudre School District, Windsor has five elementary schools and one charter school, two middle schools and one high school.
