Summary

A metropolitan district is a type of special district that provides at
least 2 types of services and may perform covenant enforcement similar
to the role of a homeowners' association. The bill requires a metropolitan
district engaging in covenant enforcement and design review services to
comply with certain procedural requirements, including:
  • Adopting a written policy governing the imposition and
collection of fines;
  • Adopting a written policy governing how disputes between
the metropolitan district and a resident are addressed; and
  • Refraining from prohibiting residents from engaging in
certain activities regarding the use of their property,
including displaying flags and signs, parking a motor
vehicle in a driveway, removing certain vegetation to create
a defensible space for fire mitigation purposes, performing
reasonable property modifications to accommodate
disabilities, using a rain barrel, operating a family child
care home, using renewable energy generation devices, and
installing or using an energy efficiency measure.
Additionally, a metropolitan district is prohibited from
requiring residents to use cedar shakes or other flammable
roofing materials.
The bill prohibits a metropolitan district from foreclosing on any
lien based on a resident's delinquent fees or other charges owed to the
metropolitan district. The bill also imposes certain procedural
requirements regarding court actions filed by or against a metropolitan
district based on an alleged violation of the metropolitan district's
declaration, rules and regulations, or other instrument.
