During its regular meeting on Thursday, Feb. 10, 2022, the Board of Directors for the Parker Water & Sanitation District (PWSD) voted to exercise its right to terminate the inclusion agreement with Castle Pines North Metropolitan District (CPNMD).
The inclusion, which had originally been scheduled to be completed on Jan. 3, 2022, was delayed to provide time to address a number of unresolved issues necessary for PWSD to accept a fully functional CPNMD water and wastewater system and for CPNMD to obtain funds to pay for the inclusion.
During its meeting, the Parker Water Board of Directors concluded that recent activities demonstrated that the relationship between the two entities was not conducive to resolving the outstanding inclusion issues. The PWSD Board of Directors, therefore, voted to terminate the inclusion agreement finding that termination served the best interests of both PWSD and CPNMD.
Following the vote, PWSD District Manager Ron Redd commented, “We still believe there is an opportunity for an inclusion with Castle Pines North Metropolitan District. Even if we’re not able to complete it at this time, we still believe that it could benefit both communities. These are complicated agreements, and sometimes it doesn’t happen the first time around. We remain open to revisiting this opportunity in the future.”
