The Fraser Valley Metropolitan Recreation District (FVMRD) was formed in 1979 as a quasi-municipal corporation and political subdivision of the State of Colorado, organized as a special district pursuant to Title 32 of the Colorado Revised Statutes. The Service Plan created in 1975 identified the major purpose for the formation of the District was to provide recreation facilities designed to stimulate summer business activity while satisfying local resident needs for recreation pursuits not currently available in the region. The Board of Directors is the local legislative body entrusted and empowered by law to exercise all of the delegated authority it deems essential for the successful planning, operation, and improvement of the parks and recreation facilities and activities within the District.
The District encompasses 218 square miles in the eastern portion of Grand County, Colorado. The District boundaries stretch from the top of Berthoud Pass in the south to the bottom of Red Dirt Hill in the north. Included in the boundaries are the Towns of Winter Park and Fraser and surrounding rural areas, including Tabernash. The current estimated population is 5,483 as reported by the Colorado Department of Local Affairs.
We are proud of our high quality recreational facilities. The FVMRD provides a variety of activities for area residents and guests including golf, adult and youth sports, recreation programs, fitness classes,cultural activities, special events and general park use.
The FVMRD owns and operates Pole Creek Golf Course and Bistro 28 Restaurant located off of County Road 5 in Tabernash, CO, Grand Park Community Recreation Center (GPCRC or “rec center”) located at One Main Street off Highway 40 in Fraser, CO, and the Fraser Valley Sports Complex (FVSC) which, in addition to the sports fields, features a partially enclosed NHL-sized ice rink along with concessions and skate rentals.
In February 2019, the FVMRD through a lease agreement, took over the management and operation of The Foundry Cinema and Bowl in Fraser, CO.
The FVMRD produces an annual report designed to provide the public highlights of our accomplishments and achievements for the year.

Ballot Issue 6B
SHALL FRASER VALLEY METROPOLITAN RECREATION DISTRICT BE AUTHORIZED TO ADJUST THE DISTRICT’S MILL LEVY RATE UP OR DOWN BEGINNING IN 2021 AND ANNUALLY THEREAFTER IF NEEDED TO OFFSET REVENUE LOSSES RESULTING FROM STATE-MANDATED PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENT METHOD CHANGES OR RATE REDUCTIONS (CAUSED BY THE “GALLAGHER AMENDMENT” OR RELATED LAW) IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN NECESSARY SERVICES?
YES/FOR _____ NO/AGAINST ____

Summary Of Written Comments For Ballot Issue 6B
In November, the Fraser Valley Metropolitan Recreation District (FVMRD) will be asking voters to approve a revenue stabilization measure for the FVMRD. Ballot Issue 6B asks voters to allow the FVMRD to adjust its mill levy rate beginning in 2021, if needed, to offset revenue losses due to state-mandated changes in the residential assessment rate (RAR) due to the Gallagher Amendment. These State-mandated adjustments in the residential assessment rate are expected to reduce the RAR from 7.15 to 5.85 or 18% in 2021, eliminating nearly $150,000 from the FVMRD budget. Voting YES on Ballot Issue 6B will allow the FVMRD to stabilize revenue each year and continue to provide the recreational services our community has come to expect. I fully support the FVMRD’s efforts to pass the ballot issue to assist in maintaining essential services to our community.
