Fun(ish) Fact Friday: What's a metro district and why does Colorado have them?? Metropolitan Districts, also known as metro districts are a limited form of government that are managed privately, with their own Board. Metro districts have the right to tax residents to fund public infrastructure…think streets and sewer lines. Metro districts are similar to a school or fire district and are established, typically by developers, to finance the infrastructure needed to support a new subdivision or development. A metropolitan district has various limited financial powers including the power to tax and/or assess fees for the services it provides. This cost is then passed on to homeowners on their annual property tax bill. If these public infrastructure costs were included in the price of each home, many residents would be priced out of the market. Instead, metro districts spread these costs out over time, and the residents of the metro district repay the incurred development costs through long-term property tax payments. Metro districts are separate from the local Town government and the taxes generated do not come to the Town.
