The City of Centennial values senior citizens and benefits from having an open forum for seniors to discuss issues affecting them.
About the Senior Commission
Since 2010, the Centennial Senior Commission has encouraged older adults' involvement in community issues by, among other things:
- Advising the City Council on matters affecting seniors;
- Serving as a forum for the expression of ideas, needs, concerns and goals relating to community issues, particularly as they may affect seniors;
- Offering hands-on experience and learning by and for seniors of our community;
- Enlisting community-wide participation in resolving senior concerns; and
- Providing senior opportunities to participate with other citizens in activities and programs that benefit all of the citizens of Centennial.
The Commission consists of nine regular members, two alternate members and three ex-officio members appointed by City Council. Members serve in three-year terms. The Senior Commission meets the 2nd Tuesday of the month from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Eagle Street Facility (meetings are being held virtually during the pandemic).
