The New Commerce City is an amazing place to live! I have everything I need in this small town. I have amazing mountain views, love the many trails, parks, and new stores and restaurants coming in. It is a quiet and family oriented town, yet close enough to the big city if you want to go to a mall. The Buffalo Run Golf Course & Restaurant is amazing! The Rapids stadium with so many events to choose from, and we now have the Brand New Recreation Center. I love that the New Commerce City is family friendly and keeps us busy with so much to do.

There are two Commerce Cities; the upper scale north end where the new residential development is, and the blue collar south end, where Commerce City has its roots and definitely where the city reaps its greatest rewards commerce-wise. Real residents (not commercial or industrial owners or rental tenants, but property owning - property inhabiting residents) of the south side are treated with such disdain by the city it's remarkable. It's time Commerce City took a look at the great disparity among its greater inhabitants, and the expectations the city has for all toward improving the overall state of things here. The have-less are subject to the same statutes as the haves and this is inordinately unfair for all. It's time for some subjectivity, CC. Stop penalizing the working class, blue collar, or otherwise income-limited south CC residents for the sake of maintaining the north end's pristine state.
I live nearby an area of Commerce City known as Reunion. The area itself has newly-built establishments such as a supermarket, restaurants, medical facilities, daycares, hardware stores, and more. Nearly everything is within walking distance, and easily accessible from the neighborhoods close by. I feel that the area is safe as there are police officers who live in my own neighborhood and a police station about five minutes from my place of residence. Public roads and parks are always maintained and cleaned during the entire year, except for residential roads. People are generally nice and the kids who live in the area are well-behaved. The only problem living here is that the sales tax rate is 9.25% which is ridiculously high for a middle class area. Thornton, a northern suburb of Denver, has a sales tax rate of 3.75%, and the city is only located about thirty minutes away from Reunion. Otherwise, the town is rather plesant to reside in.
