This week SmartAsset announced the best Colorado cities to raise a family and Centennial ranks third out of 10. Based on high school graduation rates, percent of residents who are children, average housing costs, median household income, percentage of families living in poverty, crime rate, annual cost of placing a child in a care center and percent change in home values. Golden, Colorado ranks number one. 

According to SmartAsset, Centennial, a suburb of Denver, is a great city for families looking to ensure a promising economic future for their children. The median household income in Centennial is just under $92,000 per year and the unemployment rate is only 5.3 percent. For both of those metrics, Centennial ranks in the top six. More than 26 percent of residents are under the age of 20, making Centennial 17th in that metric. Raising a family in the average home in Centennial will cost over $1,550 per month. SmartAsset notes that mortgage rates in Colorado are trending down, which will help more people afford homes. View the entire article here

“Recognition for being one of the best places to raise a family fills me with pride. My husband and I chose what is now Centennial to raise our family and as a mayor and grandmother, I’m even prouder to have our grandchildren being raised in the City,” says Mayor Cathy Noon. “Centennial is an outstanding community for families and we find many who were raised here chose Centennial for their families as well.”
