The Reunion Metropolitan District and the North Range Metropolitan Districts play an important role in the development of the growing community of Reunion. The professionally managed Districts provide a number of programs, services, and facilities for residents of the community.
The North Range Metropolitan Districts were established to:

The infrastructure provided now and in the future includes:
- Construction of Reunion Park and other neighborhood parks
- Construction of a trail system for easy access to open space
- Installation of landscaping along major roadways
- Reimbursement of construction costs for the Recreation Center
- Construction of major roadways
- Installation of traffic signals and streetlights on major roadways

The North Range Metropolitan Districts are local governmental entities whose formation, pursuant to Colorado state statutes, was approved by the City of Commerce City. The Districts can levy property taxes and fees to pay for the services they provide in their respective areas. They can also issue tax-exempt municipal bonds to finance their construction of infrastructure at a substantial cost savings to the taxpayers.
