Commerce City Youth Master Plan

The Commerce City Youth Master Plan is a major milestone in solidifying the city’s commitment to its youth. Its vision is to be a strategic road map and is intended to be realistic and achievable.

Through roundtable discussions, focus groups, Adams County Youth Initiative data and the National League of Cities, five areas of focus were established for addressing youth needs in the city and ultimately achieving long-term success.

The plan was adopted by city council in March 2015 and outlines action items broken into 1-3 years, 4-6 years, and ongoing. The Commerce City Youth Commission is a primary source for creating the master plan and will continue to be advocates in achieving its goals.
