Centennial is a newer Colorado municipality and was formed
in 2001 after a petition began three years prior to incorporate
the official City of Centennial. Despite being such a young
municipality it is already the ninth largest city in Colorado.

It is one of the safest cities in Colorado, and is also ranked
15th safest city in the country. Centennial’s name comes from
a Colorado’s nickname, the “Centennial State.” It is so named
because of Colorado’s admission as the 38th state in the Union in
1876, the centennial year of the Declaration of Independence.

Home to Streets at SouthGlenn – a large, upscale shopping
center – there is an offering of excellent shopping and fine
dining. Streets at SouthGlenn has a quaint small-town feel with
sidewalk cafés and shops. It fits perfectly into the neighborhood,
encouraging the community to support local businesses.
