Friends, family and other visitors frequently tell me that they love to come to Arvada. If they participate in community activities or just stroll through Olde Town, there is always something to do. And these same folks say that they feel like they are "home" in Arvada. That's because Arvadans are the friendliest, most helpful and engaging people you will ever meet -- just like family. Come see us, I bet you will agree!

Once while at a tour of the Arvada Food Bank, someone asked if they needed volunteers. The Director of Volunteers said, "No". Perplexed, the person asked, "why not"? The Director's replay was simple, "Because this is Arvada". He was referring to the fact that the food bank had a waiting list of people from Arvada who wanted to volunteer, an overwhelming list of people who just want to help. Arvada is what every small town wants to become, a community.

While I am so very proud of Arvada, it really makes my heart swell to read all the wonderful comments about our City. Everywhere you go, you are greeted by smiles- which I think in no small part are due to the place we call home. Wonderful views, friendly and helpful merchants, and a City Staff dedicated to our goal of Continuing to Build a Great Community make Arvada a very, very special place. Mayor Marc Williams

Years ago, my husband and I moved to Colorado to relocate, Arvada invited us in and we stayed! We couldn't resist the charm and the friendly community. Arvada is truly a great place to live, work and play!
