    With all of the growth in Parker, has there been any consideration about the increase in noise pollution in the town? There are so many illegal motorcycles/trucks/sports cars that produce a significant level of noise that can cause stress to people and animals.

    Parkerite2007 Asked 30 days ago

    Hello, Parkerite2007. The Town is aware of the issue with noise impacts and receives complaints from time to time that we evaluate under the municipal noise ordinance.  We have recently determined that the noise ordinance needs to be updated and are in the process of selecting an acoustic/sound consultant to assist us with this process.  The goal is to update the noise ordinance to more effectively address certain nuisance and quality of life issues.  The Town will provide more information later this fall about this project and potential meetings of the Planning Commission and Town Council related to it.

    I recently received the postcard, "Stay Involved with Your Town". When I saw the fireworks display being advertised for Sept. 13, I knew it was too good to be true, so I went to the Events url and sure enough, it was canceled already. I wish the postcards could have been modified, etc. before being sent out. It was especially tough getting our hopes dashed so soon after the 4th of July cancellation.

    ladinco Asked 27 days ago

    Hello, ladinco. We apologize for the confusion. This new planned fireworks event was not canceled until the Governor issued his statewide fire ban on Aug. 19, which was about a week after we had already set out this postcard to our vendor to be printed and mailed. Since we anticipated that unexpected changes to our future events might be possible, we made sure to include the URL link to help keep our residents updated. We're glad that the URL idea worked and you were able to get the most updated information.

    Hello, Can you provide more information on the development that appears to be going on at Stroh road, west of the Crowfoot Avlley/Mostesebocker intersection? I see lots of bulldozer activity and it looks like Stroh road may be getting extended to the west but I have not been able to find any information about this on the Parker Capital Improvements page. If it is being extended, I was curious how far, possibly even a new connection to Hess road south of the reservoir or maybe even a new exit from I25?

    DoCoresident Asked about 2 months ago

    Hello DoCoresident. Construction in that area is related to the future Hess Ranch and Anthology North developments in the southwest area of Parker. Chambers Road will be extended south and connect to Crowfoot Valley Road south of the Hess Ranch development, which is also south of Stroh Road. Stroh Road will be extended west to connect to Chambers Road.

    It has been stated by numerous sources, that Parker Town Members enjoy fringe benefits from the Tailgate, in exchange for giving the Tailgate total immunity to play music at any level they wish (No decibel level parameters, and no police involvement even when complaint calls are placed), 7 days week 7am-10pm.

    Christineschrader Asked 2 months ago

    Hello, Christineschrader. The Town of Parker has a noise ordinance that provides standards for addressing sound, including amplified music, and limits when amplified music may be played by time of day (only between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m.).  The Town’s noise ordinance does not regulate sound, including amplified music, by decibel level at present.  The Town is considering amending the noise ordinance to incorporate decibel level standards and is in the process of researching how this may be accomplished.

    Why certain areas within Parker boundaries were not incorporated into the town? There's a section on Cottonwood (Cloverleaf Cir) that is unincorporated Douglas County and not Parker. What's the reason for that?

    Andre R. Asked 3 months ago

    Hello, Andre.

    The Town of Parker’s original incorporation in 1981 was centered around the intersection of Parker Road and Mainstreet. All of the surrounding area (including Cottonwood) was in unincorporated Douglas County. Unincorporated property owners, when they develop, can choose whether to develop in the County or in Town. In the case of Cottonwood, it appears that certain developers chose to incorporate and develop in Town and other developers chose to remain in unincorporated Douglas County for their development.

    Property owners within unincorporated Douglas County neighborhoods that are adjacent to the Town of Parker may choose to incorporate into the Town through an election.

    Ive heard there is a plan for a new school just to the west of the new development taking place at the corner of Chambers and Mainstreet. Is this true? Where can I find information regarding future development plans?

    Mynameis Asked 4 months ago

    Hello. The Town of Parker's boundary ends at the Chambers/Mainstreet intersection, so anything west of that area is located in unincorporated Douglas County. You can find more information about projects being developed in in the county's unincorporated areas by checking out DC's Planning Projects online map: https://apps.douglas.co.us/dcmaps/map.html?mapInstance=planningProjects

    Is Parker doing the Wine Walk this year?

    Hello! The Wine Walk events are run by the Parker Area Chamber of Commerce. They did announce the cancellation of the May and June events, but we have not heard the status for the remainder of the summer's Wine Walks. For future announcements, make sure to check the Chamber's website at www.ParkerChamber.com.

    Will Parker be widening Hilltop road past Legend High School? Dropping to one lane makes for a lot of congestion.

    HBC Asked 5 months ago

    Hello, HBC. That segment of Hilltop Road is a county roadway (the portion of Hilltop inside Parker's boundary has already been widened to four lanes). Douglas County has identified the segment of roadway located between Legend HS and Singing Hills Road as an area that will be widened in the future (likely in the next five years). You can find more information about that project in Douglas County's 2020 Adopted Budget: https://www.douglas.co.us/documents/2020-adopted-budget.pdf/ .
