  Dear Residents,

We are pleased to announce that we will be opening the Banning Lewis Ranch Recreation Center on Monday June 15, 2020. We appreciate your patience as we waited on reopening information from the state and local government. We have been working closely with the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region to create a successful reopening plan while also ensuring the safety of our staff and residents.

We know everyone is looking forward to using the recreation Center again and we are excited to welcome you back! Please read the information below to ensure you are up to date on the latest information and policies as we prepare to reopen.

Banning Lewis Ranch Metropolitan Districts Nos. 1-5, 8-11, Regional Districts 1 and 2 (the “Districts”) are Colorado Special Districts that provide necessary public services and facilities that, for a variety of reasons, cities, towns and counties cannot provide. This website offers information about the District programs and services.

Pursuant to a “Service Plan,” a copy of which may be obtained from the Banning Lewis Ranch Metropolitan District No:1 (“BLR No.1”), the District has responsibility for coordination and cooperation with respect to financing and constructing major public utilities and roads within, and adjacent to, its boundaries. In addition, BLR No. 1 will be responsible for continued operations and maintenance of certain landscaping and recreational amenities within the boundaries of the Districts. Other improvements, not maintained by Metro 1, will be the responsibility of the Town or a private entity established for such purposes.

Banning Lewis Ranch Metropolitan District No. 2 (the “BLR No. 2”) and Banning Lewis Ranch Metropolitan District No. 3 (the “BLR No. 3”) were organized pursuant to an Order of the El Paso County District Court following elections in November 2005. At the elections, a majority of the eligible electors voted in favor of the formation of the Districts, elected members to the initial boards of directors, and voted in favor of certain tax and debt authorizations.

The master planned community of Banning Lewis Ranch runs just south of Woodmen Road on the north, to Stetson Hills on the south; Marksheffel Road on the west to Meridian Road on the east in the City of Colorado Springs, Colorado. Banning Lewis Ranch is a naturally scenic community with views to Pikes Peak. Features currently include homes, a community recreation center, parks, trails and tree lined streets. Retail, office and commercial areas are integral parts of the Banning Lewis Ranch master plan.
