To help, we have provided a high-level overview of what the difference is between the two entities.

Metro District

Painted Prairie's Metro District owns and/or maintains the amenities enjoyed by members across the community. Details about our Metro District:
• The Metro District maintains and provides snow removal for the parks, parking lots, trails, paths, and sidewalks within and adjacent to these amenities.
• Metro Districts are independent quasi-governmental entities formed to finance, construct, operate and/or maintain public improvements that are not otherwise being provided.
• Homeowners fund these services via mill levy as part of their property taxes.
• The Board of Directors is elected via public election held in May.
• The Metro District is governed by the Special District Act of Colorado and the approved Service Plan for Painted Prairie Metro District.


From a high-level, the HOA oversees items of your community closer to home.
• The HOA provides landscaping and snow removal to or for units as relevant and provides trash and recycling for the homes. For townhomes, the HOA maintains and insures the exterior of the buildings.
• They manage the architectural review process, compliance to the covenants, and facilitates board elections and meetings.
• Homeowners fund these services via monthly assessments paid to the HOA which vary by unit type.
• The current HOA board of directors is comprised of the Declarant. Over time as units close, homeowners will be elected to the board by homeowners until the board is fully elected by homeowners near completion of the project.
• The HOA is governed by the Colorado Common Interest Ownership Act (CCIOA) and the governing documents of Painted Prairie Owners Association, including the Declaration, Bylaws, Design Guidelines, and other HOA policies as well as municipal laws.

Advance HOA Management manages both the Painted Prairie HOA and Metro District.
