NOTICE TO METROPOLITAN DISTRICT
House Bill 23-1105 was enacted May 24, 2023 by the Colorado Legislature concerning the creation of task forces to examine issues affecting certain HOA homeowners’ and metropolitan district homeowners’ rights.
The Metropolitan District Homeowners’ Rights Task Force is created in the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies, Division of Real Estate, to examine issues confronting communities that are governed by the board of a metropolitan district, including tax levying authority and practices; foreclosure practices; communication with homeowners regarding metropolitan district processes and homeowners’ rights and responsibilities; and governance policies, including voting and elections.
The Metropolitan District Homeowners’ Rights Task Force members are designated representatives as identified in House Bill 23-1105, and are to be appointed on or before November 1, 2023, by the Chair of the Colorado House of Representatives and by the Office of the Governor; with its first meeting to follow as soon as practicable after all members have been appointed. The Metropolitan District Homeowners’ Rights Task Force shall prepare an interim report by March 1, 2024, and a final report by June 15, 2024.
C.R.S. Section 12-10-226.5(2)(b)(V) states that “A METROPOLITAN DISTRICT SHALL NOTIFY ITS RESIDENTS ABOUT THE TASK FORCE BEFORE THE TASK FORCE HOLDS ITS FIRST MEETING.”

Pan-Ark Estates Metro District was formed in December 2021 and is located in Twin Lakes, CO. If you have District related questions, you may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Pan-Ark Estates Metro District’s primary service is to provide road maintenance for the dirt roads throughout the District. Please contact us for more information.
There will be general communications sent out to the Pan-Ark Estates residents via email periodically throughout the year. If you would like to be on the email list, please reach out to the email above, and we can add you to our email distribution list.
At the June 29, 2022, Board Meeting, the Board of Directors approved the rental of equipment and the hiring of an operator for grading the roads. Recently, the District’s Intergovernmental Agreement for insurance coverage and binding has been completed. This step was a necessary and important part of the process of allowing the District to rent the grader to maintain the roads. Now that the insurance agreement has been finalized, the District has moved forward with acquiring the grader. The grader is scheduled for delivery on Wednesday, August 3, 2022. We have confirmed with the grader operator, and he informed us that work will begin on Thursday, August 4, 2022.
Although the District is responsible for repairing and grading the roads, there is some items that homeowners and drivers in the district can do to help minimize wash-boarding and road damage. By utilizing 4-wheel or all-wheel drive, wash-boarding can be limited as 2-wheel drive vehicles can cause and exasperate wash-boarding. Also, driving a little slower on dirt roads helps to prevent further wear and tear that speeding will worsen.
MEWA and Friends of Twin Lakes
In the Pan-Ark Estates Metro District, there are a couple other associations that are involved in the area. You can access these association for other items. The Mount Elbert Water Association (MEWA Link) provides water services for residents in the area, and for area alerts, you can contact the Friends of Twin Lakes (FoTL Link). The District is not a part of either organization. You may access their websites in the previous two links.
Camping and Structures on Private Property
The Metro District is not able to enforce camping or other structures on private property. The primary service of the District is to maintain the roads, and the service plan for the District is not expected to be amended. Even with a service plan amendment, this private property enforcement is not a power the Metro District would or could have.
The Development Code provisions are enforced by the County. The Metro District can merely provide information to homeowners (the camping regulations document can be found on the HOA webpage; Link here) to discourage the activity. These are County regulations that can only be enforced by the County. Please see below for County information.
