  SECOR Cares - “Thank you for your consideration of our support! The specific request of $5K would have a significant impact on the growth and expanse of our services. SECORCares is extremely grateful to be a beacon to Parker and surrounding communities in this challenging time for so many. And this refrigerated truck will allow us to leverage our impact and services – serving both those unable to come to our center, as well as other less-resourced foodbanks."  
  BAI Engineers - “Commitment to our mission statement, BE identified two research and development projects that will benefit the rural and disadvantaged communities. To implement the two projects, BE made offers to two college students who will be full-time interns with employment period from May 11, 2020 to August 14, 2020. BE originally planned to pay the summer interns using our revenue. Unfortunately, due to the economic impact of Coronavirus, our reserve funds will be exhausted to keep our existing labor force. Bai Engineers will use the requested grant funds of $5,000 towards hiring a full-time engineering student for the duration of May to September 2020.

    Parker Jordan Centennial Open Space (PJCOS)

Effective January 1, 2018 the District transferred its 50% ownership in PJCOS to the City of Centennial.  The  City is now the 100% owner of PJCOS.  The Board decided they wanted to reduce their ongoing maintenance costs, reduce the mill levy and pay off outstanding debt as soon as possible.  The City had been an excellent partner with the District since 2010 and the Board was pleased that the City would accept this total responsibility.

PJCOS will remain in its current condition as natural open space for a minimum of 40 years through a deed restriction agreed upon with the City.  The District and City also entered into a revised IGA which establishes the current allowed uses on the property. These documents are below:

  The board is discussing a potential Regional Community Facility that might contain a small community center, pool, park and trail connections. The facility would possibly be located along the Jordan Road corridor between the Arapahoe/Douglas County Line and Broncos Parkway. The estimated cost is in the range of $5-7 million dollars.

The Cottonwood Metropolitan District and E470 Potomac Metropolitan District have been approached to participate. Each of these Districts will require a mill levy and debt increase election in November 2015 if the project moves forward.

The PJMD Board has allocated some planning/site analysis/concept design funds in the 2015 budget to continue the discussion. No final decisions have yet been made regarding this potential facility.

December 18, 2012 Board Meeting

After discussion, upon motion made and unanimously approved, the Board decided to table any future action on the proposed CCP at Sites 1, 2 and 3. The Board decided to hold a planning work session in early 2013 to discuss future projects and priorities for the District and the usage of available cash reserves. This could include lowering taxes, escrowing excess funds in the Debt Service Fund to retire debt earlier, other major infrastructure projects, developer reimbursements, or parks and recreation projects/other amenities for the businesses and residents.

The Board discussed the possibility of a Sub District or a separate Parks and Recreation overlay District to accomplish a future community center and pool project to be paid for by those residents directly benefiting from the project. Mr. Kron will provide additional information on these entities to the Board for review.
