Centennial, Denver’s newest community, offers the benefits of city living with the comforts of suburban life in beautiful and well-kept neighborhoods. Incorporation was approved by 77% of the voters in 2001, and the population of the area at over 100,000 made it the largest incorporation in U.S. history as of its creation. The city was incorporated in large part to prevent further annexations of unincorporated areas by the city of Greenwood Village to improve its tax base.
The taxes generated from businesses in unincorporated portions of Arapahoe County funded most of the county’s services, including road work. Several court cases eventually established the right of incorporation to take precedence over the right of annexation.
Residential areas in Centennial are scattered between 500 acres of public parks and 800 acres of an open space system connected by miles of hiking and biking trails.
Along with exceptional schools, Centennial also provides an abundant variety of shopping and dining experiences that will appeal to anyone looking for this strategically-located area near the Centennial Airport and the Denver Technological Center.
