Water Service & Snow Plowing
The Castle Pines Metropolitan District (CPMD) was established in 1973 for the purpose of providing water, waste water treatment, operation and maintenance of street improvements and storm drainage services to the Castle Pines Village community. The CPMD also provides snow removal service throughout the community.
Plowing begins when there is 3" snowfall accumulation, or as conditions warrant. Subdivision roads will not be plowed if parked vehicles or other obstructions interfere with the safe and continuous operation of snow removal equipment. Equipment will return to plow after parked vehicles or obstructions are removed.
The time required to clear snow and ice from roads varies depending on the following conditions:
- snowstorm intensity
- snowstorm duration
- traffic conditions
- time of day
Because of these variables, the District may not be able to plow or sand roads at the same hour each day or on occasion even the same day of the storm. Normal hours of operation are 3 a.m. to 8 p.m. This schedule provides time for crews to plow and sand Priority I and 2 roads in preparation for the morning and evening rush hours. Once major collectors are cleared, crews will start on local roads and District-maintained cul‑de‑sacs.
Snow Removal Priority System
Due to specialized equipment, logistics, timing, available funding and manpower to provide efficient and effective snow removal for District‑maintained roads, we assign a snow removal priority to each road.
PRIORITY I - COLLECTOR ROADS: Collectors are roads which provide for high traffic volumes over medium to long distances. Collectors are used for intra-District travel needs. Designed speed limit is as posted (25 to 35 miles per hour). School bus routes are assigned Priority 1 and are given special attention.
PRIORITY 2 - LOCAL I ROADS/CUL-DE-SACS: Local I roads provide for medium volume traffic within the District and provide direct access to residences. Designed speed limit is 20 miles per hour.
PRIORITY 3 - LOCAL II ROADS AND CUL-DE-SACS: Local II roads provide for low volume traffic within the District and provide direct access to residences. Designed speed limit is 15 miles per hour.
PRIVATE ROADS, COMMON DRIVEWAYS AND SUB-ASSOCIATION ROADS ARE NOT MAINTAINED BY THE DISTRICT FOR SNOW REMOVAL
Operators will return to widen roads as conditions warrant. During a major storm, cleanup operations may be on-going for three to four days after the storm.
Mailboxes installed along roadways are at the risk of the owner. Mailboxes damaged from lack of owner maintenance, snow load from plowing, or vandalism are not the responsibility of the District. Postal regulations require residents to clear snow in front of mailboxes to allow mail delivery.
During winter, the freeze/thaw effects on pavement can rapidly form potholes. Crews will be dispatched as quickly as possible to repair potholes. Temporary materials must be used during the winter and may not endure. Please report potholes by calling (303) 688-8330, weekdays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The District is governed by an elected five-member Board of Directors. Day-to-day operations are managed by the District Manager and Staff. The Metro District's Board meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month, 8:30 am, at the District's office - 5880 Country Club Drive. Periodically, the meetings are re-scheduled. To confirm date and time, call the Metro District at 303-688-8330.
