Centennial: The Basics
So even though the town of Centennial only dates back to 2001, way back when cell phones were merely functional and Brittany Spears was all the rage, the city draws its name from the fact that Colorado was admitted to the union in 1876, exactly one hundred years after the nation was founded.
The city's mix of the natural and residential makes for a bit of a tense relationship between critters and renters. The latter have even been instructed on how to avoid seeing their pets get eaten by foxes. Yikes. If you enjoy seeing wild animals right from your backyard, however, you’re coming to the right place!

This is quite a healthy town! Anyway, the survey also went on to find that 90% of residents ranked their quality of life in the city as excellent or good; 75% ranked the quality of the city services as excellent or good; and the people like their libraries, police, and fire departments, but have a bone to pick with street maintenance and repair. Overall, the results weren't terribly surprising, or surprisingly terrible.
If the nitty gritty of Centennial administrative fluff is what gets you going, you could do worse than dive into the mayor's State of Our City speech. Here's a lively excerpt: "A city born in a pancake house, by five men with a vision—aided by multitudes of believers with 'energy,' fortitude, and grit." A pancake house, huh? Could you explain what you mean, Mr. Mayor?
