Town Council Meeting Update

Want to know what happened at the most recent Town Council Meeting? We have you covered! Recaps will be posted on each Wednesday following that week's Town Council Meeting.


Public Hearings

KOA Property Drainage and Flood Control Improvements
Town Council approved the final design and construction plans for drainage and flood control improvements to Cherry Creek from the McCabe Meadows trailhead to the Flat Acres Farm area. This approval is an amendment to an existing intergovernmental agreement between the Town and Urban Drainage and Flood Control District for the conceptual design. This is the southern reach of the original overall conceptual design. The project is included in the 2019 Stormwater Capital Improvements Projects budget approved by Town Council.

18th Judicial District Juvenile Assessment Center Memorandum of Understanding
The Juvenile Assessment Center (JAC) provides a coordinated site that contributes to the safety of youth, families and the community through early intervention, comprehensive assessment and improved access to appropriate services in Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln counties in Colorado. Thirty-four different organizations in the 18th Judicial District are subject to this Memorandum of Understanding, which was approved by Town Council. The annual funding contribution for each organization is calculated using a formula that is weighed equally by each law enforcement agency’s total population and their average usage of the JAC over a three-year period. The Parker Police Department’s contribution for 2018 was $23,155.07. A similar contribution is anticipated for 2019
Approved 4-0 (In Favor: Lewis, Poage, Toborg, Williams)
