What is the Perry Park Water and Sanitation District?
It is a quasi-governmental entity called a special district that provides the water and sewer (wastewater) services for the Perry Park area.
What is a Special District?
A special district is a political subdivision of the State of Colorado, which is established to provide community services such as (in our case) water and wastewater services. An elected board of directors, each of which must permanently reside or be property owners and registered in Colorado to vote, governs a special district. They are all non-profit quasi-governmental entities that have the power to tax and provide any community services, except law enforcement.
Who are the people on the District’s Board and how are they chosen?
All of the District’s Board members have been elected by the residents that are permanently residing in or owning property within the boundaries of the District and are registered voters of Colorado. The Directors of the 5-member Board are elected to staggered 4-year terms and can serve up to 2 consecutive terms.
When does the Board meet?
The Board of Directors meets every 3rd Wednesday of each month at 2:00 pm in the District’s office, unless otherwise posted. There are also special meetings scheduled when the need arises, which are also posted. All meetings are open to the public and are posted at least 72 hours before the meeting. Notices are posted at the District office, this website and at two other public places within the District.
Who can serve on the Board of Directors?
Anyone that permanently resides in or owns property within the District’s boundaries and is a registered Colorado voter can run to be elected to serve on the District’s Board.
Who are the current Board members?
For a list of names and bios for the current board members, please refer to the Meet the Board
page of this website.
Can I attend any of the Board meetings?
Yes, the public is always welcome to attend and indeed encouraged to attend any of the monthly Board meetings and any scheduled special meetings or work sessions.
Where is the District’s office located?
We are located at 5676 West Red Rock Drive, Larkspur, CO 80118. We are open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday except holidays and scheduled closures.
What is the difference between this District and the Perry Park Metropolitan District?
This District provides the water and sewer (wastewater) services to the Perry Park area. The Perry Park Metropolitan District oversees the public facilities of the Perry Park Ranch area. Its main function today is protecting the Perry Park Ranch community from natural disasters, especially wildfires. Both are special districts, which are organized and regulated under Colorado’s statutes.
