Wright Farms Metropolitan District
The Wright Farms Metropolitan District is a local government responsible for parks and recreation, storm sewer systems, traffic and safety systems and landscaping within the Wright Farms, Holly Crossing and Jasmine Estates subdivisions. The District was established following approval of its Service Plan by Adams County and approval by voters within the District’s boundaries in January of 1986. The District was formed for the purpose of constructing and financing certain improvements within the District.
The District’s public improvements have been constructed and conveyed to Adams County and the City of Thornton. In 2002, the District paid off its bonds and does not have any outstanding debt. Currently, the District funds and maintains park and recreation facilities through its collection of ad valorem property taxes assessed on each property within the District. The District maintains the Holly Crossing and Wright Farms Parks, the Tennis Courts on Jasmine Street, certain wooden fencing, the brick sound barrier wall along 120th Avenue and certain common landscaping areas.
The District is governed by a five-member Board of Directors, which meets at 7:00 p.m. at the Wright Farms public library on the first Thursday of each month March through December. To serve on the Board, an individual must be a “registered elector” of the District, meaning that he or she must either reside in the District or own property (or be a spouse of one who owns property) within the District. Elections are held in May of even numbered years.
