The Chatfield Corners Owners Association is still active and all governing documents are still in full effect.
To save owners money, the Board of Directors entered into an agreement between the Owners Association and Metropolitan District granting the District power to administer the duties (DRB, covenant enforcement, etc.) usually done by the HOA.
The Owners Association budget for 2021 is $0, and there are no dues for 2021.
That does not mean that the Owners Association will not, at some point in the future, have a budget and need to charge dues again, although the Board is working very hard to make sure that does not happen. Please be sure to keep your contact information up to date with the Association in the event we need to get in touch with you.

WATER & WASTE WATER
Chatfield Corners uses ditch water to irrigate. Cleaning your irrigation intake screen on a regular basis will optimize your water pressure. You may never have cleaned your screen before but because of the warm temperatures and low water, there were a number of issues last season which was all related to dirty or plugged up screens. We recommend cleaning the screen no less than weekly during the irrigation season. Please see the attached instructions

Special Districts in Colorado
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 over 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 save money for their residents and property owners by selling tax-exempt bonds (to provide financing), they are also 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 see the attached document provided by the Colorado Department of Local Government.

Xeriscaping is a type of landscaping that focuses on water conservation. With the extended droughts affecting the West, xeriscaping is one way can residents to do their part to help conserve water. Xeriscaping is not “zero-scaping” with rocks and other non-porous surfaces replacing turf or other high-water use plants. If planned properly xeriscaping can result in beautiful landscaping that makes the most efficient use of the water that is available. Chatfield Corners has utilized xeriscaping with the refurbishment of the planting bed along the recreation path off of Autumn Glen St. Consider these sources for more information and ideas on xeriscaping:
