Administration & Budget
As the state’s third-fastest growing city, Commerce City is redefining itself for the next generation, building on historic values of community, industry, agriculture, and family. The city covers 34.72 square miles and is expected to grow to a 61-square-mile area during the next 20 years.

Home Rule
Commerce City became a home-rule municipality in 1970, which means the city council may determine local laws within the city limits. Our city operates under a council-manager form of government, in which the city council sets the city vision and approves the city budget, while the city manager serves as the chief executive officer for the organization. The laws (ordinances) that govern citizen conduct are contained in the city's Municipal Code.
