Commerce City Waives Development Fees for Select Commercial Retailers

Post Date:06/03/2019 10:28 AM

Commerce City is offering another advantage to select retailers looking to do business in the city and serve a rapidly growing population. City Council recently passed Resolution 2019-53, waiving development related fees for eating and drinking establishments, recreation or amusement facilities, and visitor accommodations.

The new fee waivers are in addition to the resolution previously passed by city council waiving development related fees for new full-service restaurants and are in addition to those incentives that may be available through the Commerce City Economic Development Incentives Program.

“As more rooftops are built, the demand for more restaurants and entertainment options continues to increase,” said Commerce City Mayor Sean Ford. “These resolutions passed by city council will help attract businesses in the retail, hospitality, and leisure industries to serve our growing community.”

The aim of this resolution is to attract new commercial development to improve the quality of life for city residents, create new employment opportunities, and attract other commercial development in the city as part of the “Ready for Retail” campaign. This waiver applies only to the end-user of a development for certain types of businesses and some exclusions apply.

The city is looking for development partners to provide retail services to its rapidly growing areas in both the historic city and the northern range. For more information, contact the Economic Development division at or 303-289-3620.
