Seeing Centennial recognized in the top 10 on Money’s best place to live list fills me with so much pride. As we’ve been celebrating Centennial’s 20th anniversary this year, it has been so much fun to reminisce about the extraordinary aspects of our founding. Our community has achieved so much and should be very proud of what we have created. Centennial was formed by its citizens so thank you to our residents, businesses and partners for making Centennial a best place to live,” says Centennial Mayor Stephanie Piko.

Castle Rock is the other Colorado city on the list at #28.
