The City of Central is the only Colorado municipality that does not place its full place name at the end of its municipal name. The towns of Garden City, Lake City, Orchard City, and Sugar City are statutory towns despite the word "city" at the end of their name. The municipality of Creede uses the official title "City of Creede" despite its status as a Colorado statutory town.

Neither village nor civil township is a type of civil division in the State of Colorado, although the cities of Cherry Hills Village and Greenwood Village and the towns of Log Lane Village, Mountain Village, and Snowmass Village have the word "village" at the end of their names. Several resort communities use the word "village" to describe their central business district.

In Colorado, a municipality may extend into multiple counties.
