Red Sky Ranch Metro

Holland Creek Metropolitan District

Red Sky Ranch Metropolitan District

Located in Wolcott Colorado, Red Sky Ranch Metropolitan District and Holland Creek Metropolitan District are quasi-governmental agencies which work jointly to provide water services, wastewater services, roadways, storm sewer and mosquito control in the Red Sky Ranch area.

Two Districts, One Cause

Red Sky Ranch Metropolitan District (RSRMD) is the “finance district” in a dual district structure whereby RSRMD has and will continue to finance the construction and operation of the infrastructure for the Red Sky Ranch subdivision. RSRMD has entered into a District Facilities Construction and Service Agreement and the First Amendment to District Facilities and Service Agreement with Holland Creek Metropolitan District and pursuant to the agreements, RSRMD is obligated to pay for the operation, construction and initial financing for the primary infrastructure for the Red Sky Ranch area.

Holland Creek Metropolitan District is the “service district” and as such, will use the funds received from Red Sky Ranch Metropolitan District to pay the costs to acquire, construct and equip the facilities, provide for their operation and maintenance and utilize the facilities to provide services including water and wastewater services, street maintenance, stormwater and mosquito control services as well as certain administrative services.

Special Districts are local governments (quasi-municipal corporations and political subdivisions of the State of Colorado) established to provide certain necessary public infrastructure, facilities and services to a community. These improvements and services include water, sewer, streets, drainage systems, landscaping, traffic related safety enhancements, park and recreation facilities and services, fire protection, mosquito control, and transportation improvements. There are currently 1,800 Special Districts in Colorado providing these types of facilities and services to communities throughout the State.

The use of a Special District to provide these public improvements and facilities allows financing on a tax-exempt basis, at lower interest rates and on more favorable terms than would be otherwise available through private sector alternatives, resulting in a savings to property owners on the cost of infrastructure necessary for a community. Special Districts as local governments are not only able to reduce costs by purchasing essential goods and services tax-free, and participating in intergovernmental agreements with other local governments.

Special Districts protect property values by assuring property owners that infrastructure is properly phased, and roads, water and sewer lines, and other essential facilities and services, to the extent owned and maintained by the Special District, will continue to be maintained.

As governmental entities providing essential, fundamental services, the Colorado Legislature has promoted the use of Special Districts through a governing set of statutes. Special Districts are governed by a board of directors that must meet and act in public session with public notice, and Special Districts must comply with, among other requirements, the Colorado Open Records Act, the Local Government Budget Law, and the Local Government Audit Law. Special Districts are also accountable to the approving jurisdiction through annual reporting requirement and service plan limitations. For more information, please refer to the Colorado Department of Local Government.

Water and Waste Water

The District owns and operates an independent water treatment plant and distribution system that delivers potable water to each property within the community. Usage for each property is metered and billed on a monthly basis. One-time tap, plant investment, and meter fees are charged at the commencement of construction of a home.

All Red Sky Ranch (RSR) home sites are located beyond the reach of conventional sewer systems. Depending on the location, the home site may be served by a community septic system serving several lots or an individual system on or adjacent to your lot. (Both are referred to as an onsite wastewater treatment system or OWTS) All RSR septic systems are installed by and maintained by the Holland Creek Metro District. Fees to operate and maintain the OWTS on each property are billed to the property owner on a monthly basis. The Septic system engineering and installation is included in the wastewater engineering and tap fees paid to the District.

Below are links to the current fee schedule and applications for service.

The Holland Creek Metropolitan District contracts with American Conservation & Billing Solutions Inc (AmCoBi) to provide monthly billing services for the RSR water and waste water services.  AmCoBi can be reached by phone at (877)410-0167 for questions related to monthly invoices or changes in billing information
