Ignacio is a small community of about 800 people nestled in the southeast corner of La Plata County along with the Southern Ute Indian Tribe. We are a quick drive to the Navajo Lake State Park, the San Juan Mountains and National Forest, thousands of acres of State/Federal lands, Mesa Verde National Park, and the Four Corners Region.
The Town consists of a variety of businesses and residential homes with a unique Southwest Colorado feel. Our businesses range from local family run restaurants, galleries, locally owned and run grocery stores, banking, chiropractic and dental clinics, as well as a wide variety of other goods and services. The Ignacio School District serves hundreds of children from the Town all the way to the Colorado/New Mexico Border.
For a list of landlords that own three or more rentals (and therefore have a business license with the Town) who may have rentals available, please click here.
Town Hall is located at 540 Goddard Avenue, Ignacio, CO 81137. We provide water, sewer, gas, and seasonal irrigation water to the residents and some of those on the edge of Town boundaries. To see more of what Town Hall does for Ignacio, check out this video from Colorado Municipal League that talks about all the services a local municipality provides for its citizens.
Please take a look around the site and let us know if you have any questions or if we can help in any way.
