Five candidates have thrown their hat in the ring to fill three upcoming vacancies on the Park Meadows Metropolitan District board. Bryan Glenn, Gary Godden, Kevin Furman and Harvey Field are newcomers to the election, while Martha Sippel, acting assistant secretary, is seeking another term.
The election will be conducted by mail, with ballots mailed to registered voters the week of April 16. Ballots must be returned by 7 p.m. May 8.
Sharon Van Ramshorst, current vice president of the district, said it’s great to see so many newcomers who are interested in participating in maintaining and shaping the future of the district.
“It’s nice to see so many becoming interested, and it’s important for people to understand the different entities in the city and what they do,” said Van Ramshorst. “It’s important to continue to have residents who are interested in the district and have new residents come in with new ideas and add some new points that would be helpful to have happen in the city.”
The metro district, which was organized in 1982, is a government entity managed by a five-member board of directors, serving an area that includes about 5,000 eligible voters. The district operates on an annual budget of approximately $2.5 million, according to district officials.
The district is located almost entirely within the city of Lone Tree. District boundaries are generally County Line Road on the north, I-25/Park Meadows Drive/Yosemite Street on the east, Lincoln Avenue on the south and Quebec Street on the west.
The district works with Lone Tree and Douglas County to provide major capital improvements to arterial and collector streets that benefit district residents and property owners. The district also maintains landscaped medians and public rights-of-way within the district boundaries. Street improvements, transportation and safety protection are also the responsibility of PMMD.
