Northglenn Honors Local Businesses

Jordon Perlmutter Wins City’s Legacy Award

The city recognized 10 local businesses while honoring the pioneer of the community at its annual business breakfast on Oct. 14.

Jordon Perlmutter received Northglenn’s Legacy Award at its 5th Annual Business Appreciation Breakfast. The Legacy Award is the highest honor given at the breakfast.

Perlmutter helped build Northglenn other planned communities throughout Colorado before passing away in 2015. In 1959, Perlmutter started construction of more than 6,000 Northglenn Perl-Mack homes. Northglenn was later named “The Most Perfectly Planned Community in America,” by Life Magazine.

“Jordon Perlmutter was a Northglenn legacy and pioneer,” said Northglenn Mayor Joyce Downing at the event. “He led the way for a better community.”

Hannah Mullen was on hand to present a letter on behalf of Rep. Ed Perlmutter, who was Jordon Perlmutter’s nephew.

“When I’m in Adams County, I enjoy seeing his imprint on local business and schools,” he wrote. “It is not uncommon for me to knock on a door, visit a school, or stop by a business that he either worked on or had some involvement with. I am proud that his legacy can be seen across Adams County.”
