District No. 4 initially discussed the process for creating the Brighton Crossings Authority at its public Regular Meeting on September 10, 2018. District No. 4 then held a public Special Meeting on October 24, 2018 to discuss the specific mechanics of an Authority Establishment Agreement with the community.
What are the boundaries of the Authority?
A map of Brighton Crossing Metropolitan District Nos. 4-8, which would include all property within the Authority, is attached hereto as Exhibit A. What is an Authority?
- An Authority is a legally separate governmental entity, which has the ability to provide operation and maintenance of various public improvements, in addition to traditional design review and covenant enforcement services.
- An Authority is created contractually through an agreement entered into between the various governmental entities. In this instance, the Authority has been created through an Authority Establishment Agreement entered into by and between each of the Brighton Crossing Metropolitan District Nos. 4-8.
- The Authority operates and maintains various public improvements throughout the entirety of Brighton Crossings, such as landscape maintenance and snow removal, and operate and maintain recreational facilities. Additionally, the Authority provides design review and covenant enforcement services.
- The Authority allows for consistency in the services provided throughout Brighton Crossings, as well as provide for economies of scale. Creation of Brighton Crossings Authority allows for a single entity to oversee the operation and maintenance of various public improvements throughout Brighton Crossings. The Authority establishes and enforces a uniform set of standards and guidelines for the entire community, minimizing inconsistencies in the services provided. For example, the Authority has the ability to hire a single landscape maintenance contractor for all of Brighton Crossings, as opposed to potentially using five (5) different landscape maintenance contractors in each respective district. Further, allowing a single entity to oversee the operation and maintenance of public improvements throughout the community will result in a lower per-resident price for such services. Use of a single district manager, landscape maintenance contractor, snow removal contractor, etc., allows the Authority to secure the lowest overall prices on behalf of Brighton Crossings. Use of an Authority allows for the development of a consistent and connected community.
- The Authority is governed by a five (5) member Board of Directors. Each of the five (5) Brighton Crossing Metropolitan District Nos. 4-8 Boards have the ability to appoint one (1) of its members to the Authority’s Board of Directors. The intent is to provide equal representation on the Authority’s Board to each of the five (5) districts comprising Brighton Crossings.
- No, the construction of public improvements such as recreational facilities, roads, water lines, sewer lines, parks, etc., will continue to be financed by the individual districts. For example, if Brighton Crossing Metropolitan District No. 7 issues bonds to pay for certain street and water improvements, District No. 4 will not be responsible for paying any portion of those bonds. The Authority is limited to the operation and maintenance of public improvements, and traditional design review and covenant enforcement services, and is not involved in the construction of public improvements.
- It is intended that the Authority will undertake the traditional HOA functions, such as design review and covenant enforcement services. As such, the declarant is exploring options to dissolve the HOA. Dissolution of the HOA is separate from the creation of the Authority, and it is not necessary to dissolve the HOA in order to create a functioning Authority. To the extent the declarant determines to dissolve the HOA, it is anticipated that the declarant will coordinate with the community throughout the HOA dissolution process.
- No, the Authority does not have the ability to impose taxes. The Authority may impose and collect fees to off-set its costs of operating and maintaining public improvements, and providing design review and covenant enforcement services. It is intended that the Brighton Crossings Authority will impose a fee structure generally similar to that currently imposed by District No. 4. If the Authority undertakes all operation and maintenance functions, District No. 4 would then be able to reduce or eliminate the operational fees it currently imposes. Individual districts also have the ability to pledge any of their revenues, including property taxes and fees, to the Authority to off-set the Authority’s operation and maintenance costs.
Special Districts in Colorado are local governments considered as political subdivisions of the state. The first two levels of government, of course, are the Federal and State governments. Local governments include counties, cities, school districts and other entities such as special districts which includes Metropolitan Districts. Municipalities and counties can be limited in the types of services they provide. Districts are created to fill gaps in these services. Single–purpose districts provide communities with ambulance, fire protection, water, sanitary sewer, health and park and recreation services, library, school, and arts. In addition to single purpose districts, there are metropolitan districts that can provide multiple services including public infrastructure, streets, water and sewer service, open space, parks, irrigation service, traffic and transportation related safety enhancement services.
