The Cordillera Metro District (CMD) – a quasi-governmental entity – is charged with the operation and maintenance of Cordillera including public safety, administration, community operations, road and snow removal, trail maintenance, capital projects and the Cordillera Equestrian Center.  

Special districts in Colorado are regulated by state and county governments and are required to file plans outlining the services the metro district will provide and the parameters within which it will operate.  CMD levies taxes that are used to repay outstanding debt (bonds) and finance annual operating budgets.
