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.

Last week, Christian Living Communities marked its 47th anniversary as the organization celebrated Founders Day with birthday cake and a luncheon for friends, board members, leadership and others who have invested in the mission of the organization.
Christian Living Communities first community, what is now known as Clermont Park, held its dedication on May 7, 1972, and the next day began offering love, respect and compassion to older adults in Denver as the first residents moved in.
“This tradition of ‘caring for our own’ AND of ministry to others continues to be the dream of the people behind Christian Living (Communities). The vision has not changed, nor has the dream yet been fulfilled. As Christian Living (Communities) grows and expands in the coming years, the dream may come closer to fulfillment.”
Those were the words on the 20th Anniversary of the organization, of Elmer Houtsma, the first Nursing Home Administrator for The University Hills Christian Nursing Home, now part of Clermont Park and the birthplace of Christian Living Communities.

Colorado Community Media expands Centennial Citizen print edition to include east side of Interstate 25
Englewood, Colo. – Starting this May, Colorado Community Media (CCM) is excited to announce the expansion of the Centennial Citizen print edition. In expanding the community publication, CCM Publisher Jerry Healey said the goal is to be more inclusive.
Centennial, which became Colorado’s newest city, was incorporated in 2001. However, the city’s boundaries are split between the east and west sides of Interstate 25. Since 2001, CCM has primarily printed the community newspaper covering the west side of I-25.
“Several months ago, the city approached us to explore ideas on how to cover the city in a way that would unite the two areas, and help create a singular identity,” Healey said. “We immediately embraced the idea. Ultimately, the goal is to create community, the personal connections that ground us and keep us centered in this very fast-paced world.”
In a letter to residents, Centennial Mayor Stephanie Piko said, “It’s especially important in our hurried day-to-day lives to take a step back and examine everything the Centennial community has to offer. Whether you want to learn about neighborhood initiatives, upcoming events at Centennial Center Park, local school programs and athletic teams, City-led projects, new businesses, or simply read an immersive human-interest feature, you’ll find the Centennial Citizen to be a consistent resource.”
The first edition, delivered for free to 45,000 Centennial households on May 2, marks the end of free driveway delivery to west Centennial, and the beginning of paid home delivery to all Centennial homes, including residents on the east side of I-25. To make this expansion possible, CCM is currently charging a first-year subscription fee of $20.
In addition to continued coverage of Littleton Public Schools in Centennial, CCM is expanding coverage to now include the Cherry Creek School District. Taking the lead on all things Centennial is CCM reporter Ellis Arnold.
“With the subscription fees, we will be able to include more community news, more information from local school districts and provide important news and information on neighboring communities,” Healey said.
Also starting in June, CCM will send a special monthly publication, “Life in Centennial” by direct mail to every home and business in city limits. The special monthly magazine, printed on upgraded newsprint, will have a lighter take on community news.
About Colorado Community Media: Colorado Community Media (CCM) is the state’s largest community media outlet, printing 18 community newspapers across four counties in the Denver Metro Area. Reaching more than 300,000 readers per week, CCM publications include: Arvada Press, Elbert County News, Lone Tree Voice, Caste Pines News-Press, Englewood Herald, Castle Rock News-Press, Golden Transcript, Parker Chronicle, Centennial Citizen, Highlands Ranch Herald, South Platte Independent, Denver Herald, Lakewood Sentinel, Westminster Window and the Wheat Ridge Transcript.
