Cimarron Metropolitan District

District Governance


Purpose of the District

Cimarron Metropolitan District (“Cimarron” or, the “District”) was organized in 2004 concurrently with Vauxmont Metropolitan District (“Vauxmont”) in order to finance, construct, operate and maintain certain public improvements throughout the Candelas development. Cimarron acts as the “managing” district and is responsible for managing the financing, construction and operation of the public improvements. Vauxmont acts as the “financing” district, and is responsible for providing funding needed to support the District’s provision of services.

The majority of the public improvements (including the water lines, sewer lines and streets) constructed by Cimarron are dedicated to the City of Arvada or to other governmental entities for perpetual ownership and maintenance. But, Cimarron does have certain ongoing service responsibilities primarily including operation of the recreation centers and park facilities and maintenance of certain landscape and open space areas.

Additionally, the property within Candelas is subject to certain Covenants related to: (1) maintenance, repair and replacement of certain drainage improvements; (2) design review approval; (3) administration and enforcement of certain geothermal and solar programs, improvements and technologies; (4) landscape maintenance of certain specific lots; and (5) administration of trash removal and recycling programs. The Districts are responsible for administering and enforcing the Covenants. A copy of the Covenants can be found on the Policies page.

Finally, in May 2010, to supplement the ability of the District to provide public improvements, Vauxmont formed the Candelas Special Improvement Districts (“SIDs”). The SIDs were organized to encourage, accommodate, and provide financing for renewable energy and energy efficiency improvements (“Green Improvements”) in Candelas by, among other things, collecting sustainability fees which may be rebated to homebuilders and/or homebuyers that install qualifying Green Improvements.

Note: Water and sewer service within Candelas is provided by the City of Arvada.
