Mission Statement

The mission of the City of Black Hawk is to progressively provide cost-effective programs and services of the highest quality to the community. 


Welcome to the City of Black Hawk, where American patriotism and the indomitable spirit that built the West still reside. A City where we appreciate and celebrate our history while embracing and promoting our future. Since the inception of gaming 30 years ago, the City has enjoyed a renaissance, from a once prosperous mining and milling city to a struggling and stagnant city to the premiere resort gaming city we are today, greeting thousands of visitors annually. Over the next several years, this revival will continue as the City achieves its aim of becoming a gaming-centric resort destination offering amenities and outlets that will complement the excitement and entertainment we are known for already. I encourage you to join us and watch our progress; what we have planned will make Black Hawk a must-experience Colorado attraction, and be history-making in the process.

--Mayor David D. Spellman
