The Amber Creek Metropolitan District

The Amber Creek Metropolitan District (the District) is a quasi-municipal corporation and political subdivision of the State of Colorado. The District's boundaries wholly encompass the Amber Creek  neighborhood and the District's board of directors are elected solely by Colorado registered voters living and/or owning property within the Amber Creek neighborhood.

The District was formed to issue debt to finance the construction of the streets, parks, storm drains, perimeter fencing and other public infrastructure throughout the neighborhood. In addition, the District provides certain on-going services to the neighborhood including (1) maintaining the landscaping of certain open spaces (the park is maintained by the City of Thornton), (2) maintaining the perimeter fencing around the neighborhood, (3) monitoring and enforcing the neighborhood's restrictive covenants and maintenance standards applicable to every lot and (4) providing architectural review services in accordance with the neighborhood's restrictive covenants and architectural guidelines. The District collects property taxes and monthly maintenance fees from homeowners to fund these neighborhood services and to repay the District's debt.
