A metropolitan district, or “metro district,” is a special district and a local government unit authorized by Colorado state statutes, including the Special District Act (Section 32-1-101, et seq., C.R.S.).
Metro districts are organized to finance public improvements necessary for development to occur and provide ongoing operations and maintenance of certain public improvements. There are thousands of metro districts throughout Colorado and several in Timnath. While a metro district is a separate and independent entity, the Town Council reviews and approves the service plans for metro districts located within town boundaries.
The Town of Timnath conducted several public meetings to examine the role of metro districts in our community and help build an understanding of their governance, structure, and financing.
