Welcome to the Harris Park Metropolitan District’s (HPMD) website!
We are a small mountain community located in the northeast corner of Park
County in the town of Bailey, Colorado.  HPMD sits generally at an elevation of 8,852 feet and borders the Pike National Forest and the Mount Evans Wilderness area.

The purpose of our website is to keep HPMD residents, property owners, real estate agents, and other visitors informed of the latest news, business items, and events within our community.  If you are seeking information, please visit the FAQ tab before you make a phone call to the district.  We invite you to explore the site and feel free to contact us if you need any additional information not available here.


HPMD is a special district.*  At this time, HPMD is primarily responsible for managing the water within its boundaries. The purpose of this page (and its accompanying pages) is to provide transparency to the voters within the district.

*Special Districts in Colorado are local governments, i.e., political subdivisions of the state, which make up a third level of government in the United States. (The federal and state governments are the other two levels.) Local governments include counties, municipalities (cities and towns), school districts, and other types of government entities such as “authorities” and “special districts.” -Colorado DOLA website

  • The District’s resources are overseen by a publicly elected Board of Directors, consisting of five citizens who own property or reside within the District’s boundaries.
    Notice to Property Owners:
    It’s the Owners responsibility for Contacting Park County Clerk Office to make sure you are properly registered in order to receive ballots to vote in HPMD elections.
    In 2020 and 2022, Board members will serve three-year terms.  Beginning in 2023 Board members will serve four-year terms going forward.   Elections take place every two years in May.  The State Legislature approved changing local elections to odd years rather than even years.  The 2020 election was been cancelled.  There were 3 available seats and 3 nominations received.  These candidates were automatically elected and sworn in at our May meeting (May 9, 2020).  Please refer to our “Contacts” page for updated Board of Directors. 

    HPMD Board of Directors’ monthly meeting is the 2nd Saturday of every month at our Community Center at 2154 Shelton Drive.  The meeting starts at 9:00 am.  All regular monthly meetings are open to the public.
