The Tri-Lakes area is composed of many interleaved layers of jurisdiction and taxation. The well-informed resident should be able to identify which (if any) municipality, metropolitan district, water and sanitation district, fire protection district, school district, and homeowners association collects taxes and fees and provides services to their home. Hint to property owners, you can also learn a lot by looking at your property tax bill.

Below: INCORPORATED AREAS—This map shows "incorporated areas"; any property outside Monument, Palmer Lake, and Colorado Springs is in unincorporated El Paso County. Map courtesy of El Paso County Assessor’s Office.
Below: METRO DISTRICT—This map shows "metropolitan districts," which are special districts that provide more than two services. (e.g. residents of the Jackson Creek area receive most of their services not from the Town of Monument but from the Triview Metropolitan District: water; sewer; drainage; parks, recreation, and open space; mosquito abatement; and street maintenance.)
