City of Centennial News

May 2019
Greetings District 4!
 
In recent months our community has experienced the sad reality of youth suicides. The City supports the efforts of both Centennial School Districts: Cherry Creek and Littleton to help keep our youth safe. District 4 residents are served by the Cherry Creek School District and they have a mental health webpage available with helpful resources and guidelines. 
 
Centennial continues to be one of the safest cities in Colorado by delivering and supporting essential public safety services for our citizens. This year, City Council approved two decision packages with the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office to continue enabling access to public safety and health services that meet the needs of the community. One of the decision packages approves a Behavioral Health Program which provides an opportunity for mental health clinicians to respond as needed to calls for service as appropriate with a Sheriff Deputy.
Additionally, one of the priorities of Centennial's Youth Commission is mental health. If you have a high school student between the ages of 13 and 18 who may want to get involved with the Commission visit centennialco.gov/youthcommission for more information. 
 
On another note, thank you to those who have invited us to their HOA or neighborhood meetings. We appreciate hearing from you and helping respond to any concerns specific to your neighborhood. Please let us know if you have an upcoming meeting you would like us to attend. 
 
We do this together!
