Urban Renewal Projects
The following projects are managed by the Commerce City Urban Renewal Authority:
Derby Downtown District
The historic Derby Downtown District is an important part of Commerce City’s identity. Revitalizing the district, re-establishing it as a destination and enhancing its visibility are just some of the goals of the Derby Master Plan.
Mile High Greyhound Park
The redevelopment process at the former Mile High Greyhound Park envisions the site becoming a vibrant, mixed-use area combining residential, retail, office, civic and educational spaces to help revitalize this historic part of Commerce City.
Commerce City allows residents of formally-identified neighborhoods to actively organize into neighborhood associations. The goal of a Neighborhood Association is to provide a point of contact for information and build community pride. Unlike most private homeowners’ associations (HOAs), membership is optional in a Neighborhood Association, which cannot establish rules/regulations or levy dues and fines.
Becoming a Neighborhood Association allows residents to collectively voice concerns/questions and receive information directly from the city about crime prevention programs, development activity, events and much more. Neighbors can work with Cultivando to establish membership, boundaries and bylaws, as well as research grant funding for neighborhood improvements or block parties.
