Commerce City means business – after all, it's in the name. Defined by a rich history of commerce, today the city creates a sustainable community by redefining what commerce means and the way business is done every day. Commerce City is a pioneer in private-public partnerships leveraging urban renewal to ensure vibrant community spaces such as Victory Crossing.
As Colorado's fourth-fastest growing municipality, with a labor force more than doubling in the last decade, Commerce City prepares for the next generation and builds on the values of community, industry, agriculture and family. Affordable and diverse housing will support the more than 100,000 people who are expected to make Commerce City their home during the next 20 years.
Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy more than 700 acres of parks and open space, 25 miles of trails connecting the city to regional routes, 20 parks and recreation facilities, and Commerce City’s award-winning Buffalo Run golf course, which is one of the Denver metro area's finest courses as well as host to prestigious, professional golf tournaments.
The city is home to 13 national and international corporate headquarters and major regional facilities as well as being a place where entrepreneurs and small businesses flourish – more than 70 percent of the city's 1,300 businesses employ 15 or fewer individuals.
By providing businesses with the resources needed to be successful, Commerce City is becoming the public partner businesses rely on. Through its nationally recognized business incentive program, 668 new jobs have been created and more than $85 million in capital investments secured since its inception in 2010.
Commerce City is a place where industry, business, sports, wildlife, and culture all harmoniously create a quality community. No wonder it's a top choice for people to live, work and play in Colorado. The city's vision is providing a "Quality Community for a Lifetime."
