The City of Evans is a Home Rule Municipality located in Weld County, Colorado, United States. The population was 9,514 at the 2000 census, and estimated at 17,912 as of July 1, 2007, by the Census Bureau. Long considered the "second" city of Weld County and a vigorous competitor with its neighbor, Greeley, for the Weld County seat, today Evans has accepted its status as a bedroom community of workers for Greeley and other cities. Named for Territorial Governor John Evans, Evans was established in 1867 and was Weld County's seat of government twice before Greeley finally captured the honor. Legend in Evans is that the county records were stolen by night-riders from Greeley, who also supposedly burned the courthouse. Today, Evans, like other towns along the South Platte River, is home to a rapidly-growing Hispanic population. Its primary commercial area is located on US-85 just south of its junction with US-34, but new commercial areas are developing as the city expands to the west.
