Centennial, CO

Incorporated in 2001, the city of Centennial is relatively new. About 20 miles south of Denver, Centennial was formed out of the unincorporated areas of Arapahoe County. Many residents still refer to it by the names of the surrounding cities, such as Littleton and Englewood. Although it is a young city, it is home to approximately 103,000 residents.

ECONOMY AND INDUSTRIES

Centennial's economy is quite diverse, with no single industry employing more than 15 percent of the workforce. The finance and insurance sectors are the largest contributors to Centennial's economy, followed by professional and technical services, the retail trade and construction. The area is growing quickly, especially with the recent addition of a new shopping center. There are several major employers in the Centennial area:

Centennial's proximity to Interstate 25 and Interstate 225 makes for easy transportation to the surrounding areas. Denver is less than half an hour to the north; if the local economy were ever in trouble, residents could most likely commute to Denver for work.

NEIGHBORHOODS AND DISTRICTS

Because Centennial was created from unincorporated areas of the surrounding cities, its neighborhoods are diverse. The city does not have nice, clean boundaries, and it does not simply lie within a continuous area. Instead, it has more of a "checkerboard" appearance to it. However, Centennial has established six sub-areas within its scattered city limits, most of which are affluent suburbs.

BEST BETS

GETTING AROUND

The Southwest Light Rail runs along Santa Fe Drive, from Union Station to Mineral Avenue, and the Central Platte Valley Light Rail runs from Colfax Avenue to Union Station. The FasTracks Project plans to add 119 miles of new light rail and commuter rail by 2014.
