The City of Centennial and Cherry Creek School District (CCSD) have executed a second intergovernmental agreement (IGA) for a five year lease along Centennial’s fiber optic backbone. CCSD will lease a portion of the City’s 432 strand fiber backbone for a term of five years, with the option to extend the agreement another five years. The fiber lease will provide connectivity from the Student Achievement Resource Center to the Cherry Creek Innovation Campus and Grandview High School.
The fiber lease will provide advanced internal connectivity to support educational and organizational needs for the Cherry Creek School District.
“I am pleased to see Centennial’s vision come to fruition with the completion of City’s fiber backbone. It is exciting to see the interest and commitment of the organizations in Centennial to have improved connectivity increasing efficiencies for day-to-day activities,” says Mayor Stephanie Piko. “We look forward to continuing to provide opportunities for businesses, community stakeholders and residents in Centennial through these lease agreements.”
The first lease agreement between the City and CCSD was for fiber connectivity between the Student Achievement Resource Center and the Cherry Creek Options Program buildings.
The City completed construction on the 50-mile fiber network in December 2018 and has executed five dark fiber leases with two different internet service providers, a local business and two with the Cherry Creek School District.
