As the state’s third-fastest growing city,  Commerce City is redefining itself for the next generation, building on historic values of community, industry, agriculture, and family. The city covers 34.72 square miles and is expected to grow to a 61-square-mile area during the next 20 years.

In the last decade, the city’s population has more than doubled, but the city has maintained its small town atmosphere.

The average median age of residents is 30.7 years old, with a mean household income of $73.577. 72% of residences are occupied by homeowners, with a median home price of $187,300.

Home Rule
Commerce City became a home-rule municipality in 1970, which means the city council may determine local laws within the city limits. Our city operates under a council-manager form of government, in which the city council sets the city vision and approves the budget, while the city manager serves as the chief executive officer for the organization. The laws (ordinances) that govern citizen conduct are contained in the city's Revised Municipal Code.
