The Centennial City Council has approved the production of “Neighborhood Resource Guide” for the Denver suburb and its residents at a cost of approximately $106,000.
Available in April, The Guide will cover resources for everything from law enforcement to code enforcement. Even public works will be included because, by then, Centennial will be handling its own roads and infrastructure.
Councilman Todd Miller has asked that the guide be included on the Centennial web site.
Megan Connett, administrative Assistant for the City, told the Council that the Guide will tell who to call about a pothole and where to get a neighborhood map. “The Guide will add value to neighborhoods”, she said.
Finance Director, Charles Montoya, would not commit to $106,000 covering all of the Guides expenses because the budget for it is open ended. Still, he expects the figure to cover “most things”.
Because Centennial is one of the newest towns in Colorado, there has been some confusion about where to call for specific services. The City Council expects the Guide to clarify what agency handles what services in the City. Easy contact information will be provided.
Centennial was named for the book by the same name written by James Michener. It extends westerly from the Saddle Rock area of Aurora, east of Cherry Creek dam, nearly to Broadway on the west. That’s approximately 14 miles wide.
