The Mile High Greyhound Park was a staple in Commerce City for over 60 years. What once was a vibrant entertainment destination, the park served as an economic engine for the city, employing hundreds of residents and sales tax revenues were reinvested in community projects. When greyhound racing ended in 2008, visitors and activity in the historic heart of Commerce City slowed. Now owned by the Commerce City Urban Renewal Authority, the site is set to be redeveloped into a diverse mixed-use development that, at completion, could create 1,454 permanent employees and generate $65.4 million in income on an annual basis.
