Metro District Board Meetings are held the last Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. at the Hendrick Office Building, 62 Plaza Drive, Highlands Ranch. The public is invited to attend.

Board Member Eligibility

Board members must live in or own property in the District Region which they serve. In 2018, House Bill 18-139 passed changing regular special district elections from even years to odd years. To implement this change, the special district directors elected in 2020 and 2022 will be 3-year-terms. The terms will return to 4-year terms at the 2023 election.

Board Member Responsibilities

Metro District Board members’ responsibilities include representing the people of Highlands Ranch, setting policy and directing the Metro District’s staff in a number of areas including: budget preparation, maintenance of roadway landscaping, parks and open space, construction of storm drainage facilities and major roadways including adjacent landscaping, street lights and traffic signals, construction and management of parks, open space and trail systems and outdoor recreation programming.

If you have questions, please email the individual board members at the links shown on the Local Government page, send an email to the Metro District at Information Please.

Board elections are held in May of even numbered years.  Click here to learn about elections.
