The Board of Directors of the Estes Valley Recreation and Park District is made up of five individuals elected from the District at large. They each serve for a term of four years and may serve for two consecutive terms. Board seat elections are held in May of even-numbered years for those Directors whose terms have expired. To help ensure continuity of service on the Board, terms are staggered such that no more than three Directors are elected in any given election cycle.
Vacancies that occur between election cycles are filled by the Board of Directors who appoint an individual to serve until the next regular election, at which time the vacancy shall be filled by election for the remainder of the originally vacated term.
To qualify as a Director, a person must be an eligible elector.
"Eligible elector" means a person who, at the designated time or event, is registered to vote pursuant to the "Uniform Election Code of 1992", and: Who is a resident of the special district ; or Who, or whose spouse or civil union partner, owns taxable real or personal property situated within the boundaries of the special district.
A person who is obligated to pay taxes under a contract to purchase taxable property situated within the boundaries of the special district shall be considered an owner of taxable property for the purpose of qualifying as an elector.
These qualifications must be met at the time of candidacy (or appointment), and must be maintained in order to remain qualified as a Director.
Citizens who have interest in serving as a Director and who meet the qualifications to serve as Director may nominate themselves by following the applicable procedure as specified by the state statute governing Special District elections. Anyone interested in serving as a Director should contact the Designated Election Official for the District to obtain the self-nomination form and the deadline for filing such form. Candidates must also check with Larimer and Boulder County Elections to understand the filings required under Colorado's Campaign Finance laws.
The next board election will be held on May 8, 2018.
