A MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR
One of my favorite things about Commerce City is that the outdoor recreation and leisure activities are plentiful and diverse. From public art in our parks to miles of trails for hiking and biking, there is truly something for everyone. Residents and visitors can enjoy outdoor play areas from skate spots to the city’s first inclusive playground for youth of all abilities. The Commerce City Parks, Recreation & Golf Department offers stateof-the-art recreation facilities, including two recreation centers and an outdoor leisure swimming pool at Paradice Island. Avid golfers can tee off at Buffalo Run Golf Course, an 18-hole championship course suitable for players of all ages and ability.
n Commerce City, families experience a high quality of life that includes affordable housing options and 840 acres of open space and parks. All of these reasons contribute to why 64,000 plus residents choose to call Commerce City home - and why thousands more move here each year.
In the last decade, the city’s population has more than doubled, but the city has maintained its small town atmosphere. Commerce City is a safe, diverse, and welcoming community so that citizens of all incomes, ages, and abilities are able to live and thrive here.
At Dick’s Sporting Goods Park – located right here in Commerce City, sports fans can cheer on the Colorado Rapids soccer team and music fans can enjoy outdoor concerts. Commerce City is also a place where you can watch eagles soar high and bison roam free at the largest urban wildlife refuge in the country at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal
National Wildlife Refuge. Commerce City inspires me through its community spirit and there are many ways to connect to our neighbors and make our community a better place through volunteer opportunities. Residents can use their skills and interests by volunteering for a city board or commission, from advancing the arts to advocating for youth, seniors, and veterans. Residents can visit c3gov.com/boards to learn about ways to get involved and give back. I am humbled to have been chosen by the residents of Commerce City to serve as Mayor and I am committed to serving our citizens with integrity, honesty and enthusiasm. Commerce City is on a journey to creating a Quality Community for a Lifetime and you’re invited to join the residents and visitors who have discovered our community as a great place to live, work and play! Mayor Benjamin Huseman

n 1995, the Colorado Rapids soccer team started. Since then, it has become significant to the history of Commerce City. The park in which they have played, Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, garnered thousands of fans and is in what its founder Stan Kroenke, the owner of the Colorado Rapids, the Nuggets, and the Avalanche, believed to be the ideal location.
Bullock said the Kroenke family had other options.
a football game or baseball game, when everybody leaves that you’re stuck in traffic,” Bullock said. “We have a rail stations less than a mile away. We had benefits that made it an accessible part, so that was what the benefit was to Kroenke and the Dick’s Sporting Good Park.” Bullock also said that the Rapids weren’t successful just for Commerce City.
René Bullock, executive director of the Commerce City Chamber of Commerce, said both the team and the stadium benefited the area.
“They were successful for the whole Denver metro area. But in turn, that made them very successful for Commerce City,” Bullock said.
“We benefited from Commerce City for the fact that it was there and it drew attention to the city of Commerce City. But they benefited from its location in the Denver metro area and how easy it was to get to, and that it wasn’t that traffic jam part that, after
The Rapids staff also contributed to the success of Commerce City. “They was such a welcoming staff,” Bullock said. “They were at the right place at the right time, all the time.”
“Stan Kroenke knew that was the spot because he had looked at three other spots in the Denver metro area, but the Commerce City spot was the spot that he picked,” Bullock said. “He stood there on that site and looked at how it was framed with the Rocky Mountains in the background and the city. So, Stan Kroenke, we can say his vision was our
“Colorado Rapid’s past is part of Commerce City’s present and future,” René said. “I think as long as they do well, it is going to bring economic development to Commerce City, and it’s going to bring a great future to Commerce City.” To learn more about the Colorado Rapids visit coloradorapids.com.

THE SUPRISING NATURE OF THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN ARSENAL
Urban wildlife refuge offers more than just views

here are plenty of surprises hidden among the lakes and hills of the Rocky Mountain Wildlife refuge.
Located on 15,000 acres of open prairie, the refuge offers 10 miles of hiking trails as well as an 11-mile self-guided drive through the wildlife refuge. It’s home to herds of bison and white-tailed and mule deer as well as prairie dogs and coyote. Black-footed ferrets were re-introduced into the refuge in 2015 and have found a home in hundreds of acres of abandoned prairie dog burrows.

THE SUPRISING NATURE OF THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN ARSENAL Continued from page 11
Up above, the refuge is home to a wide range of birds, from geese and ducks to loons, cormorants and the occasional pelican as well as several varieties of hawks, cranes, vultures, owls and woodpeckers. Both Golden Eagles and Bald Eagles call the refuge home. Outside of the refuge, visitors are free to fish in the arenal’s ponds, hike the trails and check birds off of their birdwatching checklists. The 11-mile drive into the wildlife refuge also offers stunning, wide-open views of Colorado’s Front Range and the towers of Downtown Denver. One of the biggest surprises might be that the refuge is free to visit all year long. Dogs are not allowed, even those kept in cars, and the drive is frequently closed during the winter, due to snow. But the refuge is open year-round, save for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day. A place of refuge It was the eagles that helped make the

refuge what it is today. The U.S. Army began developing the area for making chemical weapons — such as mustard gas, napalm and chlorine gas — soon after World War 2 began. It was transitioned into a manufacturing and storage site for agricultural pesticides and fertilizer when the war ended and well into the 1970s. But as the 1980s began local and national voices began calling for a clean-up, and the arsenal site was named a Superfund site.

Soon after that started, a roost of bald eagles was discovered at the site and that brought in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. By 1992, Congress had declared it a wildlife refuge. Clean-up was finished by 2011 at a cost of $111 million. The official visitors center, named in honor Colorado Senator Pat Schroeder opened in 2011. At 15,000 acres, the refuge is one of the largest urban wildlife refuges in the United States.
