On behalf of the Arapahoe County Board of County Commissioners, we would like to express our appreciation of how much there is to love about our county, and how important it is that we act now to maintain those things we love so that they can be enjoyed for generations to come.
Our county offers a unique diversity of landscapes, industries, recreation opportunities and people. That diversity is one of the many reasons so many people have chosen to call Arapahoe County “home.” In fact, Arapahoe County is expected to add another 200,000 residents by 2030.
Meeting the needs of this growing county is challenging, especially considering the magnitude of issues we must address: housing affordability, mental health, criminal justice, homelessness, crumbling infrastructure and roads.
Despite our long tradition of doing more with less, these shared priorities require additional resources. The Board is taking a serious look at how best to modernize and stabilize our revenue stream in order to meet these critical needs that will ensure Arapahoe County continues to be the number one place to live, work and raise a family.
In the coming weeks and months, we look forward to engaging with you as we navigate a path forward. Stay tuned for future telephone town hall events at www.arapahoegov.com/townhall, follow us on social media or in future newsletters to learn more about your county and how it operates. #GetToKnowArapahoe
