A message from Terry Nolan, Highlands Ranch Metro District general manager
I hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. During these challenging times, it is important we are all looking out for one another, even with limited contact and resources. Keeping our spirits up and our bodies healthy and active is important as we face this crisis, which changes day-to-day.

The offices of the Highlands Ranch Metro District and Centennial Water & Sanitation District, which serves Highlands Ranch, are currently closed to the public. However, office staff continues to work from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., providing essential municipal services to Highlands Ranch. We have staggered our shifts and some employees are working from home. Others are in the field, working in two shifts covering six days a week maintaining our parks, parkways, trails and open space that are popular among people anxious to enjoy physical activity and fresh air.

When you’re visiting our community’s parks, be sure to keep your social distance, respect that some recreation amenities are closed – and try to use the outdoor amenities closest to your home. Also, if you have the opportunity, please greet our Metro District staff from a distance and thank them for their work to keep our facilities safe and in good shape.

To comply with Tri-County Health Department guidelines, all rentals, permits and organized activity in our parks are canceled through at least April 20. We are in regular communication with Tri-County Health Department, and we will continue to monitor their updates and recommendations. Due to the rapidly changing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, this guidance may be updated at any time.

Our public health/COVID-19 webpage offers a number of resources to keep you up-to-date during this difficult time: highlandsranch.org/public-health-message/

We’re all in this together. I look forward to the day when we can look back on this experience, not as our reality, but as a distant memory.

Stay well,

Terry Nolan

Stay at home. Stop the spread.
You are part of the solution to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Stay safely at home except for essential trips; create physical distance from others when you are outside your home; use your favorite technology to maintain important relationships. These actions combined will limit our collective risk and save lives
Support local
Even while you're home, you can continue to support local Douglas County restaurants and businesses. Ordering takeout and delivery is still allowed under the state's Stay at Home order - remember to maintain distance. Many in our community have put together lists of local options still open for business.
