Stormwater Maintenance Work Beginning Week of October 9th
Douglas County will be recommencing work on the detention ponds by Silvercliff Lane and Elmwood Street and at the stormwater outlet off of Hazel Court as shown in the attached map. They plan on starting grading and mastication work on October 9th and grading work will continue for approximately a week depending on the weather. Seeding and blanketing will follow the grading work. The county limits its crews to a Monday-Thursday work week and no heavy equipment will be used prior to 8:00 AM. During their remediation work, the detention ponds will be closed off.
Community Vandalism and Graffiti Problem
In recent months we have seen an increase in vandalism and graffiti in our community. This includes damage to fields and common areas from vehicles, graffiti in the skate park and other areas, and port-o-lets being tipped over. Graffiti has a significant negative impact on the community. Vandalism increases the community’s perception of crime, reduces community pride and displaces funds which could be spent elsewhere.
Since 2022 the Metro District has spent more than $13,000 removing graffiti and repairing or replacing damaged property in our community. This does not include the recent graffiti at the skate park area or damage at the Community Park bathroom structure. For reference, the $13,000 represents money that could have been spent elsewhere to improve district facilities.
Your Metro District is asking for your help.
If you see vandalism happening, call 911 to report it.
- The police need to know when vandalism is happening so they can increase patrols in impacted areas and catch those responsible.
If you see vandalism after it has happened call our Business Manager at 303-987-0835.
- Reporting allows us to quickly address vandalism and remove graffiti
- Rapid removal is a “best practice” in reducing graffiti and can take away the thrill that vandals get in seeing their vandalism on display.
Metro District property is community property. The parks, playgrounds, ballfields, and open space are for our enjoyment. Help us protect our shared property. We are committed to reducing the occurrence of this destruction as well as increasing the likelihood of detection and apprehension. The Metro District will work with law enforcement to identify those committing these offenses.
If you SEE something, SAY something. Your awareness is very important in the preservation of our parks and community.

Metropolitan District Homeowners’ Rights Task Force
House Bill 23-1105 created the HOA and Metropolitan District Homeowners’ Rights Task Forces to examine certain matters in communities that are governed by these entities.

Traffic Concerns and Complaints
The District has had several concerns from residents about traffic within the District, including people exceeding the posted speed limits. The Board met with the Douglas County Sheriff's Department in January to discuss this issue. The Sheriff’s office recommended residents take the below steps:
If you see a bad driver or have a concern or complaint about drivers, call our Traffic Safety Hotline at 303-660-7539.
Please leave the following information on the Hotline:
Detailed description of the traffic problem.
Exact the location where the traffic problem occurred.
Include information about the time of day and date of the problem.
Leave your name and contact information.
Your information helps the traffic division deal with bad drivers in a timely manner. It also allows them to collect and analyze statistics so deputies can target areas with the most complaints.
