Vegetation Management

The Cordillera Metropolitan District (CMD) manages a  Vegetation Management Program consistent with State and County laws and regulations. This program encompasses landscaping, weed control, and revegetation.


The abundance of flowers and landscaping in Cordillera will grab your attention on summer days with their alpine beauty. Cordillera's landscape provider builds colorful flowerbeds at gate entries, signage areas and common buildings.

Weed Control

The Cordillera Weed Control Program was established through an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with Eagle County in accordance with the State of Colorado's "Weed Management Act." This Act was put into place because several species of non-native plants have become an economic and environmental threat to the value of land in Eagle County. This Act requires integrated methods be used to manage weeds, including:
  • Cultural - Maintain favorable growth of desired plants over undesirable plants
  • Chemical - Use of herbicides or growth regulators
  • Biological - Use of organisms
  • Mechanical - Physically disruption like tilling, mowing, burning, hand pulling, etc.
The IGA with Eagle County gives CMD authority to oversee and enforce the management and compliance of its own property, which also includes all open space, Associations and private properties within the Metro District boundaries. The Cordillera golf courses are managed by their own personnel.


Revegtation projects occur periodically on open space throughout the community.  Areas are seeded  with the proper native grass seeds as approved by the Cordillera Design Review Board and in conjunction with the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) per the unique and diverse areas throughout Cordillera.
