Letter from the CMD & CPOA Board Presidents

Dear Cordillera Property Owner,


The Cordillera Metro District (CMD) and Cordillera Property Owners Association (CPOA) would like to provide an update on services that continue to benefit property owners and strengthen the community.


Water Surcharge

CMD is pleased to announce that effective May 1, 2017 the $18.50 per single family equivalent (SFE) water monthly surcharge collected by Eagle River Water and Sanitation District will be terminated. This will result in a minimum of $18.50 per month in savings per household. This surcharge has been collected since 2003 for the purposes of funding ongoing capital improvements to our water system and has resulted in approximately $2.3 million in reserves which enables CMD to plan and contribute to the water system capital improvements in partnership with the Eagle River Water and Sanitation District. These consist of:

  • A new 110,000 gallon water storage tank at the top of the Western end of the system, which would meet build out water demands and fire flows for the three pressure zones below it at an estimated cost of $850,000.
  • Water main upsizing on Gore Trail to improve fire flows in the immediate vicinity at an estimated cost of $250,000.
  • System enhancements to increase reliability, reduce risks and address new regulations at an estimated cost of $1.1 million.

Note: Project expenditures are still be determined.


Employee Survey

Mountain States Employers Council (MSEC) was selected as an independent third-party to administer an employee opinion survey in February 2017. The survey was designed to measure employees' assessment of a number of different employment categories and attributes. On Friday, March 24 Heather Shockey, director of outsource consulting services and Brittany Johnson, specialist, from MSEC presented the survey findings to the boards.

CMD was compared to 250 other employers representing over 5,000 employees in the Rocky Mountain region. The overall response rate was 87.5 percent (49 out of 56) and included both full-time, part-time and seasonal employees.

The key highlights are these:  

  • The overall survey mean was 4.09 (Very Positive) out of 5.00 on the Likert Scale. This is the highest score seen by MSEC in 30 years of completing the survey for an employer conducting the survey for the first time.
  • CMD outperformed the MSEC norm data in all 10 categories.
  • The highest scores, related to Supervision, Work/Life Balance and Satisfaction, fell in the very positive range of 3.75 and above. Compensation, the categories of Communication and Training/Development ranked in the positive to very positive range from 3.58 - 4.04.  
  • Work sessions have been held with employees to review the survey data and seek feedback for improvement ideas.

The survey results can be found at www.CordilleraLiving.com/EmployeeSurvey. Both boards are pleased with the positive results and greatly appreciate each employee's contribution in making Cordillera a premier community.


Short Course 2017 Summer Operations

The Grouse on the Green is not available to CPOA this summer; therefore we have no space for a pro shop or cart barn. The board and staff have been working on identifying alternative operations that are not cost prohibitive. On March 28, 2017 the board voted unanimously to maintain the Short Course as a walking course for only Cordillera property owners, guests and Club at Cordillera members. Specific details for hours of operation, parking, etc. are still in development. Additional information will be provided to the community as soon as possible.


Strategic Planning

A strategic planning session was held Tuesday, March 28, after a half-day tour of other recreation and community facilities in the valley on Monday, March 27. The planning session focused on objectives to enhance the vibrancy and vitality of the community.


As a result of the session, both boards unanimously decided to initiate a planning and development process for a centralized community center that would serve as a multi-use, focal point at the entrance of our community. We anticipate a robust, fast paced and engaging process that builds on the strategic initiatives the boards and communities have developed previously and simultaneously anticipates the needs and interest of the current and new homeowners in Cordillera for generations to come.

Bob Egan
