Chris Richardson and the Denver Basin


So a friend of mine, who just happens to be a Republican, sent me the following Chris Richardson diatribe from the Elbert County Republicans Page:

"In terms of water, this is very well thought out project. The developer has a strong conservation component to the community. A CAT III (treated to almost drinkable levels) water plant will capture and treat all the water used in the homes ...

Commissioner Grant Thayer: "Buyer Beware"

As it was Commissioner Grant Thayer who last week cautioned prospective homeowners, "buyer beware", we thought it might be useful for our readers to know of the handbook the Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) has made available for the public's education. Commissioner Thayer's warning was made during the BOCC's four-day hearing of the Independence Development land use application.

Titled, "Special Districts: A Brief Review for Prospective Homeowners", it contains eye-opening information regarding the taxing authority possessed by Special Districts and how to judge the financial soundness and affordability of taxes, fees, and fines that the homeowner may incur, how long those "taxes" may apply to the homeowner, and whether the homeowner will have any voting power in their Special District.

The Independence subdivision, as approved, has six Special Districts. Elbert County's Regional Director from DOLA has cautioned that one of the things counties and towns can do to protect its citizens is to reduce the proliferation of Special Districts.
It is easy to understand why developers and cash-strapped counties and towns need these powers. It is also understandable how cash-strapped communities easily fall prey to profit-motivated developers and their associates who push the bounds and sometimes break the laws that apply to their governmental authority.
