Metro Districts

Definition of a Metro District

Special Districts are quasi-governmental entities with taxing authority that are used to finance necessary public infrastructure and services the Town cannot otherwise provide. A Metro District is a type of special district organized under Colorado's Special District Act (Title 32, Article 1, Colorado Revised Statutes). (View FAQs on Metro Districts) These are separate governmental entities not controlled by the Town, except to the extent the Board of Trustees has authority to approve the Service Plan under which a Special District operates. 

Metro Districts are different from an HOA in that the Metro District has taxing authority and provides infrastructure while an HOA is typically funded through fees which are used for maintenance of shared spaces within the neighborhood.

Review Policy for New Metro Districts

On Tuesday, July 26, 2022 the Board of Trustees approved a new policy for how they review and approve new Metro Districts. View the approved policy. The new policy improves transparency for new homebuyers and the ability for homebuyers to more easily join metro district governing boards. The policy does not impact already existing Metro Districts (see list below or click to view PDF) but will be used for future applications for Metro Districts.
