Because of their ability to provide for long-term operations and financing of public infrastructure and facilities, metropolitan districts are the type of Title 32 special district most often formed to assist with new development. We represent metropolitan districts from the initial stages of development through project built-out, and the transition to providing on-going services. Metropolitan districts must provide two or more categories of public facilities and services as allowed by statute – the most common include street, storm and sanitary sewer, water, parks and recreation facilities and services, and, more recently, owner association functions of covenant code enforcement and design review.
We are specialists in organizing metropolitan districts for both commercial and residential developments. This includes service plan drafting and review, organizational and TABOR elections, and obtaining county and municipal approvals. Once established, we can advise on the provision of ongoing operational services and general local government matters, including contracts, financing, construction, personnel matters, and statutory compliance. Our broad experience working with both new and established metropolitan districts gives us an advantage in understanding the complexities faced by these unique local governments.
Some of our metropolitan districts clients include:
- Eagle-Vail Metropolitan District
