Parking - On Street

The Cordillera Metro District (CMD) has established guidelines to ensure safe and adequate passage on district roads. Parking guidelines are an important component of these. CMD asks that people park so that they do not impede any traffic, especially emergency vehicles and snow plows. For most of Cordillera's side streets this means parking only on one side of the road and never parking in front of a fire hydrant.

Main Roads


Parking is prohibited on Cordillera's main roads, which includes:
  • Cordillera Way
  • Fenno Drive
  • Settler's Loop
  • The Summit Trail (From Settlers Loop to the Intersection with Gore Trail)

Overnight Parking


Overnight parking is prohibited on all Metro District Roads and authorizations are managed by exception. Property owners can contact Public Safety at the Divide Gate at 970-926-2335 to request permission to park vehicles overnight. Note that it is the vehicle owner's responsibility to move the vehicle, regardless of time, if snowplowing becomes necessary.

Event Parking


Property owners are encouraged to contact Public Safety to register events that involve a large number of vehicles or if the house is located on a section of road with limited parking. Public Safety will assist with parking to include setting up cones for areas of no parking and also direct parking for a short time at the beginning of the event. Public Safety does not valet park.

Construction Sites


Construction sites are limited to 10 vehicles/pieces of equipment parked on the road at one time. Construction sites who require additional parking should contact Public Safety at 970-926-2335 to learn about parking options for shuttles.

Parking Violation


Public Safety makes every effort to resolve parking problems amiably. Repeated violations are subject to fines. Parking violations that block roads and access are subject to towing at the vehicle owners expense.

Motor Vehicle Assistance


Public Safety will assist property owners and their guests with minor motor vehicle issues such as dead batteries and flat tires. However, property owners should contact a private towing company to arrange for tows. Public Safety reserves the right to refuse service if the situation is beyond their resources/capabilities and if a person's failure to remedy a situation is causing a nuisance. Contact the Divide Gatehouse at 970-926-2335 for assistance.
