City of Centennial Gathering Community Input on Colorado Boulevard Corridor
The City is conducting a multi-modal corridor study of Colorado Boulevard from Orchard Road to County Line Road. One of the project goals is to gather resident input about uses of the corridor. An informal meeting took place January 21 at King Soopers in Cherrywood Square. Several of these type of meetings will take place throughout the early part of 2020 to spread the word about the study and encourage residents to participate in an online survey about the future of the corridor.
The study is anticipated to be completed in the summer of 2020. Learn More or Share Input

Centennial Earns No. 5 Spot on ‘Safest Cities’ List
The City of Centennial has been ranked No. 5 on the list of safest cities in Colorado.
The list, compiled by insurance and lending firm LendEDU, looked at cities with populations higher than 10,000. Cities were ranked based on the rate of violent crime (2.33x weight) and the rate of all other crimes (1x weight). Cities with low crime rates had higher “safety scores” and vice-versa for those with high rates of crime. Crime numbers were adjusted by population to account for differing city sizes.
“Public safety has always been our first priority, so receiving a designation like this is very gratifying for the City,” said Centennial Mayor Stephanie Piko. “We’re incredibly grateful for our law enforcement officers and others who help keep us safe.”
This is Centennial’s second top-5 safe city designation in recent months. In November, 24/7 Wall Street named Centennial the No. 2 safest city in the state.
