Pay My Bill: Triview Forest Lakes

Triview Newsletter — January/February 2024

2023 Year in Review

As excited as we are about what 2024 has in store for the Triview Metro District, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on some of our key milestones in 2023. These highlights help pave the way (no pun intended) for an exciting year ahead.

  • The Northern Delivery System (NDS) and its accompanying six-mile pipeline, finalized this past December, marked the completion of the most demanding and arguably most important project for the Triview district. This new pipeline is pivotal, as it will supply Triview and Forest Lakes residents with sustainable water sources and steer us away from the limited Denver Basin groundwater. It’s a significant step toward establishing an independent water supply network that will link our community to the abundant renewable water rights we’ve secured. As we gear up for an early summer opening, the final phase involves completing the pump station building. This facility will house three pumps that will propel treated water from Colorado Springs Utilities’ Highway 83 reservoir to our district’s C-Plant storage within the Sanctuary neighborhood.
  • Pueblo County approved another permit for Triview to store additional municipal water in Pueblo Reservoir, as well as in Stonewall Springs Reservoir Complex. They also approved our exchange operations and storage of municipal water. 
  • We were thrilled to have Steve Sheffield join the Triview team as an assistant district manager/project manager. He was heavily involved in helping oversee progress on the Northern Delivery System this past year. Previously, he was the assistant public works director for the Town of Monument, where he managed multiple large capital projects. This Colorado Springs native lives on the west side of that city with his wife and two daughters. 
  • The Triview board of directors added two new members with the retirement of longtime members Marco Fiorito and James Otis, each of whom served for eight years. Amanda Carlton and Jason Gross were sworn in on May 18. The district extends its gratitude to every board member – past and present – for their unwavering commitment and diligent service to our community through these voluntary positions.
  • Access to open spaces and parks are some of the key benefits of living in the Triview Metro District, and we’re committed to providing our residents and visitors with great experiences when they visit our parks. Agate Park, which had sections that were torn up due to the construction of the NDS, received a full facelift. New irrigation and hundreds of plants, including ornamental grasses, were installed. A new ADA-compliant concrete walkway from the end of Agate Creek down to the trail was also installed.
  • Speaking of parks…This spring the eight-acre Sanctuary Park will open, and it will include trails, a five-acre artificial turf field for soccer and lacrosse and a covered pergola for events. As the 11th district park, it’s a collaborative creation by Classic Homes and Triview Metro District, funded by your parks and open space fees that were paid by the home builder at the time the building permit for your home was paid. 
  • The district has installed new, free smart water meters in 98% of homes, which leaves less than 50 homes that need water meters replaced.

Triview Board Approves 2024 Budget

The five-member Triview Metro District Board of Directors unanimously approved the district’s 2024 budget at its Jan. 10 meeting. One of the highlights is that the district was able to lower the mills by 3.5 – from 24 to 20.5 mills. Homeowners will see savings of approximately $160 (based on a home valuation of approximately $650,000). With the NDS completed, there are few projects planned for 2024 – Brook Hollow Park will undergo $160,000 in improvements and there will be several roadways overlaid in Promontory this spring at a projected cost of $500,000. 

The full, adopted budget is available on our website, but below is the high-level overview:
