It is the address of the Post Office that handles the mail for that destination--that is all.

There is that one isolated, non-contiguous development off of S. Wadsworth--the closest city boundary. So, where are als these mountain properties in Littleton. Stop the nonsense.

It has nothing to do with a PO Box. Anyone can purchase any PO Box, he wants in any Post Office.

Agreed. In fact, the City of Littleton is actually wholly in Arapahoe County, Turkey Creek Canyon, etc. is in Jefferson County.

Another example, I know some folks who have a mailing address (road and all) in Colorado, but their residence is actually in New Mexico--the nearest Post Office just happens to be in Colorado. They do get asked how they can have a Colorado mailing address on their New Mexico vehicle licenses and auto registrations, but that's the way it is.

Reminds me of the story of the old man who owned property right on the border but always considered himself a proud Coloradoan. When they resurveyed the area they discovered his property was actually in New Mexico and he'd unknowingly lived his whole life a New Mexican. When his son went over and broke the news he was surprised to see the old man's eyes light up and a big smile cross his face. "Dad, I thought you'd be takin' this a lot harder". "Nah" he answered, "Best news I've heard in a long time. Was just thinkin' how I couldn't handle one more Colorado winter".
