Centennial listed as a Zoom town
Published on October 13, 2021
The City of Centennial is one of 10 unique Zoom towns, according to Rent.com. A Zoom town is a community that experiences significant population increases because remote workers are moving in. With more than 4.7 million people working remotely in the U.S., Americans continue to opt-out of big city living in search of quieter, more affordable lives. Listed as #6 and the only Colorado city recognized, Centennial is consistently acknowledged as a best place to live and one of the safest in Colorado.
Home to slightly more than 108,000 residents, Centennial offers established neighborhoods, industry-leading global companies, award-winning school districts and access to parks, trails and open space. Additionally, the City has constructed a 432-fiber strand backbone connecting key city sites and providing opportunities for community anchor institutions. Completed in 2018, this backbone enables both existing and new broadband providers to tie into the infrastructure with the goal of providing better and more competitive service choices to City residents.
With 58 percent of the total U.S. workforce working from home, it’s safe to say the popularity of Zoom towns won’t go away anytime soon. Fastly growing since the start of the pandemic, small communities and their big-city amenities are perfect spots for remote workers to put down roots and master work-life balance (Rent.com).
