Local Union 456
September 27, 2001: At the Triview Metro District Board meeting it was noted by Ron Simpson, Triview Manager, that the money for the changes to the 105/I-25 interchange were recently withdrawn by the Governor as part of the political bickering in connection with the special session.
Vol. 3 No. 1 - January 4, 2003
Ron Simpson, Triview district manager, said the additional houses produced about $150,000 in additional revenue including tap fees paid to the district.
2003 Budget With and Without Wal-Mart Simpson distributed copies of a newly revised draft 2003 budget. Simpson reported that Triview submitted an application to Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) for a lottery funds grant to improve the Heights Trail and trickle channel landscaping. He said the intent is to apply in 2003 for a $50,000 trails planning grant. Matching funds of $12,500 were included in the approved budget. Simpson replied, "We have made good strides considering we are fighting a drought. Simpson retorted, "What do you want me to cut, water and wastewater?" Gurnick said, "We are looking at Wal-Mart that we think is going to be there. Simpson added, "If Wal-Mart occurs then the picture totally changes in terms of capital projects and how it happens." Give Ron [Simpson] and I until the end of February to work with the builders." Susemihl said, "Ron [Simpson] and I will come back with costs with and without Wal-Mart. Simpson added, "If we get the GOCO grant, that will make it easier." Simpson said, "I wanted to piecemeal [the landscaping] the best I could. Simpson noted that the Academy Water and Sanitation District has dropped out of the group, leaving a total of six water providers. Simpson reported that the proposed residential and commercial development north of King Soopers has been reviewed. He said, "They are missing our standards by small margins. He said the project is moving forward. No agreement has been reached regarding drilling of the needed well. Wal-Mart Simpson reported difficulty with Wal-Mart developer Goldberg Property Associates. He said, "It is tough to get them pinned down. Susemihl said he and Simpson have been "trying to set up a meeting with the Wal-Mart people regarding the agreements." Ron Simpson said revised text for the plan has not yet been distributed. He said, "The map is fine but we need to see the text." Triview's manager, Ron Simpson, says that their cycle of indebtedness could be broken if the Wal-Mart store is built east of the intersection of Baptist Road and I-25 (for more information, see story in the Gazette by Barry Noreen, 12/10/02.) Just to make sure everything went as planned, Simpson was appointed as the Designated Election Official in BRRTA's two-voter, mail-ballot thing (I refuse to call this an election.) No, I don't know what all this means yet, but it doesn't smell very good.

Glenn asked Ron Simpson, general manager of Triview, what the implications were if they did not receive the $2 million.
Simpson said it would increase their debt, that they got no money until the fourth year of the new agreement, and that participation had never been considered when they got new bond authority. Triview, he said, got their A rating for bonds from the grantor of their letter of credit without a single mention of participation. Then Simpson suggested deannexing and creating the town of Triview or Jackson Creek, since Triview provides everything except police and fire anyway. He said the town could let Triview go its own way so that there would be no more "us-them" discussions. He said that Schutz was right: The road will be built either way, and loss of the election option won't matter. Dominowski countered that Simpson had used the opposite argument of "We have an agreement," shaking the IGA on numerous previous occasions when the district needed help from the town. Simpson said that no interest would accrue if payments to Triview were late. Triview Metropolitan District General Manager Ron Simpson asked the town to let Triview deannex at the Special Meeting on Sept. 8. Regarding the Preble's Meadow Jumping Mouse habitat issues on the proposed Wal-Mart site, Ron Simpson, manager of the Triview district, said, "I don't know which way it is going to go. Simpson reported that the Monument Board of Trustees did not approve a ballot measure for the November election required for the town to change the intergovernmental agreement (IGA) with Triview and contribute $2 million to the cost of infrastructure improvements associated with the Marketplace. Simpson asked, "Is Shupp's determination the final word? Simpson characterized it as a political decision. Simpson said, "Advocates should form a citizens' committee. He added, "Deannexation is the [Triview district's] prime remedy, our safety net. Simpson reported that a meeting is scheduled in two weeks with FWS to discuss the interim improvements to Baptist Road required as part of the Marketplace approval by the town. The improvements are expected to be made within the existing right-of-way but would impact the surrounding mouse habitat. When contacted later, Simpson said the project may require 4 to 4½ acres of mitigation habitat. He said funding for the project will be provided by the Marketplace developer. In the event Wal-Mart is approved, the Marketplace developer would be reimbursed for part of the cost of the Baptist Road improvements. Homestead parks Simpson reported that Tonya and Chuck Bjustrom raised $7,600 toward playground equipment for Homestead Park A. Blevins noted that two builders committed to contribute to the project but the district would be obligated to cover maintenance of the equipment. Simpson reported that Dana Duthie, manager of the Donala district, still wants to start design of the expansion of the plant in January 2004. Simpson said that Donala is proposing to provide all the funding. Simpson said that if the financing of Triview's portion of the cost were amortized over seven years, the interest rate charged by Donala would be about 8 percent. If the cost were amortized over six years, the rate would drop to about 7 percent. Wells A4 and D7 Simpson reported that Arapahoe aquifer well A4 needed for the Marketplace project is expected to be producing water in a few days. The cost for the well is to be paid from the Phase G bonds. He noted that the cost for equipping recently drilled Denver aquifer well D7 is $97,212. Simpson reported that Classic Homes has requested waivers from the Oct. 1 imposition of the new higher tap fees for nine houses that have closed on financing. Simpson said that Home Depot has requested an increase from a 2-inch water tap to a 3-inch tap for water used inside the store. The 3-inch tap is equivalent to 19 single-family house taps. Home Depot is also requesting a 1½-inch irrigation tap. 2004 Budget Simpson distributed a draft budget. Detailed discussion is scheduled for the Oct. 22 meeting.
Vol. 8 No. 4 - April 5, 2008
District manager Ron Simpson noted that since Triview cannot issue any more debt he negotiated an arrangement with Classic Homes, the developer of Sanctuary Pointe, under which Classic will install $3 million in district water and sewer infrastructure needed for the project and the district will rebate 75 percent of the impact and inclusion fees that Classic pays when building permits are issued.
Simpson said work on the project might get underway in Spring 2009. Commercial impact fees reduced Simpson reported that the level of Triview's current road and bridge impact fees is such that potential commercial users are dissuaded from locating within the district. He presented several alternative plans for reducing the fees and recommended a plan that would reduce the fees about 59 percent.
