Red Feather Lakes Profile


Overview

Red Feather Lakes is a tiny town located in the state of Colorado. With a population of 359 people and just one neighborhood, Red Feather Lakes is the 210th largest community in Colorado.

Housing costs in Red Feather Lakes are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in Colorado.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Red Feather Lakes is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Red Feather Lakes is a town of professionals, transportation and shipping workers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Red Feather Lakes who work in office and administrative support (20.11%), management occupations (15.64%), and architecture and engineering (10.06%).

Of important note, Red Feather Lakes is also a town of artists. Red Feather Lakes has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Red Feather Lakes’s character.

A relatively large number of people in Red Feather Lakes telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 16.76% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.

Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Red Feather Lakes is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Red Feather Lakes’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

Because of many things, Red Feather Lakes is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Red Feather Lakes a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Red Feather Lakes has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Red Feather Lakes’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Red Feather Lakes has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Red Feather Lakes has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Red Feather Lakes than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Red Feather Lakes may be for you.

One downside of living in Red Feather Lakes, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 36.59 minutes every day commuting to work.

Being a small town, Red Feather Lakes does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.

Red Feather Lakes Demographics

The overall education level of Red Feather Lakes citizens is substantially higher than the typical US community, as 31.91% of adults in Red Feather Lakes have at least a bachelor's degree, and the average American community has 21.84%.

This equates to an annual income of $155,992 for a family of four. However, Red Feather Lakes contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

Red Feather Lakes is a somewhat ethnically-diverse town. The people who call Red Feather Lakes home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups.
