About the District
Formed in 1985, Triview Metro District operates much like a town. We provide water, wastewater and stormwater services, along with maintenance of community assets such as the roads, parks and open spaces. We are responsible for building, operating and maintaining the community’s public infrastructure and we generate revenues by levying fees and charges, collecting taxes and issuing bonds. Triview strives to maintain and enhance the value of our more than 1,800 homes and 60 commercial customers, and we also set standards and design criteria for the construction of public facilities and conduct our own inspections.
Triview provides five core services to our residents: Water; wastewater and stormwater services; road maintenance, repair and plowing; park maintenance; and open space preservation. Specifically, we:
- Provide water to homes and businesses
- Provide collection and treatment for sewage from homes and businesses
- Operate stormwater facilities, including detention ponds (from rain and other sources that drain into a street drainage system where it flows to streams and creeks)
- Provide mosquito control for our open spaces
- Maintain roads (paving, plowing, repairing and replacing roads)
- Maintain parks and open spaces
- 10 public parks (mowing, watering) along with streetscapes and medians
Triview owns, operates and maintains:
- 10 Denver Basin wells
- Two water tanks: a 1.5 million-gallon concrete water tank and a 1.1 million-gallon tank
- 25 miles of water pipelines
- 25 miles of sewer pipelines
- Irrigation systems for parks and open spaces
Additionally, we’re the majority shareholder in the Upper Monument Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant.
Funding and Debt Service
Triview is funded through monthly bills sent to residents for water and wastewater services, as well as through sales tax revenue collected from retailers located within the district. We are responsible for debt service payments for historical debt dating back to the formation of the district in 1985, and that is funded by the 26-mill property tax. We collect property taxes from every house and commercial establishment in the district, and that money can only be used to pay down our approximately $45 million in historical debt. Thanks to the voters of the Triview Metro District, the district has the ability to assess up to 7 mills for Operations and Maintenance of the district’s streets and park and open space facilities. In 2021, one mill has been allocated to operations and capital improvements. As the district grows, this Operations and Maintenance mill levy will be available for additional road improvements, landscape enhancements and other projects.
What Triview Doesn't Do:
- Set speed limits
- Provide police or fire protection
- Planning and zoning
All of these items are the responsibility of the Town of Monument.
