Perry Park Metro District Board Vacancy

April 9, 2018

The Perry Park Metropolitan District needs a new director to serve the community. The District Board consists of five residents of Perry Park who are elected by resident voters to either two or four-year terms to oversee the business of the District and to manage its assets. Time requirements are the regular Board of Directors (BOD) meeting on the 2nd Thursday of the month starting at 6:30 p.m. and work session or special session meetings as needed. In addition, there will be time needed to participate with Citizen Committees (Firewise Committee, Social Committee, Parks and Open Space Committee, and the Community Safety Committee) as you may choose, and for the completion of duties inherent to your BOD position. Here is your chance to serve your community – now is the time to step up!

The Perry Park Metropolitan District (PPMD) was formed in 1977 and is a Special District within the State of Colorado. Special Districts in Colorado are local governments, i.e., political subdivisions of the state. PPMD was formed with the primary objective of improving and maintaining the road system in the Park, open space management, and community safety issues.

In 1997 Douglas County took over the maintenance of the road system within Perry Park. After Douglas County assumed road paving and maintenance, the PPMD service plan was changed to include wildfire mitigation and other duties. This included the ongoing efforts to control fire risk and reduce fire hazards in the community via the Firewise committee, community education, slash pickup program, obtaining grants, etc. Many community events are sponsored by the PPMD such as; the Independence Day parade and fireworks, contributions to the Easter Egg Hunt, etc. Inclusion activities bring new development under the community structure and management of the District’s 49 owned parcels including Wauconda Park, the Gateway parcel, and the Galloon Pond parcel. Other responsibilities include maintaining relations with Douglas County, the DC Sheriff’s Dept., Larkspur Fire Protection District along with many other community concerns.

The Board has benefited from its many past directors who have brought a wide range of experience to the Board and have provided excellent ideas and performance in an effort to continue to provide a wonderful standard of living for the residents of Perry Park. BOD have included working and retired individuals and their efforts are highly appreciated by the community.
