Centennial's Origin
Residents voted to incorporate the City of Centennial on September 12, 2000 and elected its first officials on February 6, 2001. Centennial officially became a city on February 7, 2001. The quest for a new city took almost two and half years. The campaign included victories in the state legislature and state Supreme Court. Formation of the new city was approved by a 77 percent margin in the incorporation election. It was the largest city incorporation in U.S. history.

The origins of Centennial gained national recognition in Governing Magazine. The story can be viewed through Sudden City.

The City of Centennial is what is known as a mayor-council style statutory city. This classification, in contrast to a home-rule city, limits the authority that the city exercises, primarily in the area of taxes and tax collection. The city consists of a citywide elected mayor and eight council members, two elected from each of Centennial's four wards. The city also elects a citywide treasurer and citywide city clerk. Council members serve staggered four-year terms; the city treasurer and city clerk serve two-year terms. The City Council employs a city manager to direct the day-to-day activities and functions of the city.

The City of Centennial is Colorado's newest city, located in the southern Denver metropolitan area, entirely within
Arapahoe County. Centennial is adjacent to the cities and towns of Aurora, Englewood, Foxfield, Greenwood Village, Highlands Ranch (unincorporated Douglas County), Littleton, Lonetree, and Parker.
