Discover How Our City Works

Have you ever wondered... How does a local government really work? How does a building plan go through the approval process? How are streets prioritized for plowing after it snows? Where do your tax dollars go? Then Centennial 101 is for you!

Centennial 101 is an interactive seven-week program to discover how our City works. In just 7 weeks participants will be involved in fun and engaging lessons while learning how Centennial is unique and finding opportunities to get more involved in our community.

Centennial 101 is also an opportunity for us to learn from you. What are your priorities for improving the quality of life for all in Centennial? What do you care about? What are your ideas? We want to know. We will also encourage graduates to serve on one of the City's boards and commissions, where volunteers like you work to improve our community.
