Body

Summary and Background Information

In 2015, voters in Denver and Adams Counties approved a ballot measure for revenue sharing and increased development opportunities on and surrounding Denver International Airport (DEN).  As part of the new Agreement, a regional marketing group was formed called the Aerotropolis Regional Committee (ARC).

 

ARC is tasked with overseeing a regional aerotropolis marketing, branding and public relations effort aimed at attracting high quality investment and jobs in the aerotropolis influence area. Through an RFP process, ARC hired an international marketing firm, Ogilvy, to help develop this strategy. The work was divided into three phases. Work for phases I and II is completed. Phase III work is about to begin with a total cost of $1,031,000.  Commerce City’s share of that amount is $139,185. This money was included in the 2020 city budget. However, project delays, largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, pushed the final funding requests for phase III work to 2021, making a budget re-appropriation request necessary.

 

Staff presented the re-appropriation funding request and background information to City Council during a Study Session on February 22, 2021.
