Attention High Praire Farms and Timbers Residents-
Courtesy Notice regarding ATV use in District Open Space:
Motorized vehicle use in Metro District open space is prohibited. Vehicles such as motorcycles,
ATV’s, snow machines (Skidoo’s), golf carts and scooters are not permitted in District open
space. Recently ATV/ 4-wheelers have been observed accessing District open space following
recent snow storms, particularly in the area adjacent to S. Pinery Parkway and Democrat Rd.
and the open space west of Nuthatch Rd.

Open space parcels were dedicated during the subdivision planning process to provide a
natural buffer between houses by allowing native vegetation including trees, shrubs and
grasses to create a vegetative screen between properties. Recreational vehicles damage native
vegetation and allow invasive weeds and plants to take over. Noise from vehicles also disturb
residents and neighbors. Unauthorized vehicles in open should be reported to the Douglas
County Sheriffs Department. Unauthorized users can be cited for criminal trespass and
held liable for damages. To assist the Sheriffs department take note of the vehicle’s origin and

Also, Illegal dumping of yard debris in open space is strictly prohibited and should be reported
to the DCSD (303) 660-7500.
