City of Centennial Suspends Events, Meetings

City meetings and events have been suspended until further notice.

The City and the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office are in constant contact with Tri-County Health and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Our goal is to ensure accurate information is provided to the public.

The health and well-being of our residents, businesses and employees is the City of Centennial’s top priority. Upcoming public meetings have been suspended until further notice to help slow the spread of the virus. This includes: municipal court, passport appointments, senior commission events, weekly Meet the Mayor meetings, all boards and commission meetings, and reservations in Centennial Center Park and the Centennial Community Room.

The City continues to take the appropriate precautions recommended by Tri-County Health and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. View the City's coronavirus page for the latest information.

Small Business Development Center Needs Feedback for Disaster Loan State Qualification

The Aurora-South Metro Denver Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is coordinating with the State of Colorado to declare a local need for Small Business Administration (SBA) Disaster Assistance. If you are a business currently experiencing, or expected to experience economic hardship due to the coronavirus crisis, please take a few minutes to describe your hardship on a one-page form on the City' of Centennial's Economic Development web page. Please send your completed form by the close of business today, Monday, March 16, 2020, to Nikki Maloney at nikki.maloney@state.co.us. You can also view information about the SBA's Disaster Assistance on the City's Economic Development page.

It is important to note that this is not an application for funds, this is a preliminary survey of business need to prove that Arapahoe County is in need of disaster relief such as SBA Disaster Loans and Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL). Your completed form will help improve the case for Arapahoe County and Colorado’s need.

Tips for form completion: The event start date is 1/1/2020; revenue responses do not need to be exact. Estimates are helpful; a narrative description of “business interruption” is most helpful; and “Employees before and after” can be explained in the narrative description recognizing that this is an ongoing situation.

The City of Centennial will continue to share information to local businesses as it is received.

The Small Business Development Center Network has prepared a website to coordinate all information related to support for small businesses during the coronavirus crisis. Please visit the Pikes Peak SBDC website.
