Metropolitan District Board Feb. 26 Meeting Summary
The Ken-Caryl Ranch Metropolitan District Board held a regular meeting on Feb. 26 and discussed the following items:
- The Board recognized Leslie Davis, 35-year tennis pro for Ken-Caryl Ranch. She was recently awarded the Bud Robineau Award for Service from USTA Colorado.
- The Board discussed bids for a South Hogback Biological Survey. The new Westerly Apartments in the Jefferson Corporate Center south of C-470 will open in the spring. The apartments are not on Ken-Caryl Ranch, but they are adjacent to the South Hogback public open space owned by the Metropolitan District. The purpose of the biological survey is to identify the location of rare plants, animal habitats, and historical or archaeologically sensitive areas on the hogback. After hearing public comment and concern, the Board tabled the motion to accept proposals for the survey. Staff will gather more information, and the Board will discuss the surveys again at the March meeting.
- The Board discussed the design and funding status of the Ranch House Pool Renovation, which is budgeted at $3,600,000. The Board will discuss the project further with the Master Association at the March 5 Joint Study Session. Pool plans will be presented to the community in March.
- Staff provided an update on the Community Strategic Plan. Staff and the core planning team are developing community forums to gather feedback from residents. More information on meetings and opportunities to provide input will be available in March and April.
