    Is there a town ordinance requiring businesses (or property owners) to clean up litter on their property?

    stevec asked 4 months ago

    Hello, Steve. The Town of Parker has adopted the International Property Maintenance Code (IPMC) and incorporated it into the Town’s Municipal Code. The IPMC code includes a section addressing Accumulation of Rubbish or Garbage on exterior property and premises. Please note that this does not apply to public rights-of-way, which may be adjacent to private property, such as a a roadway shoulder. 

    If you have any concerns about trash or litter that has accumulated on private property in Parker, you can report them to the Community Services Division of the Parker Police Department at 303.841.9800.

    How does the Town of Parker manage litter removal, specifically town roads, but also on Parker Rd?

    stevec asked 4 months ago

    Hello, Steve. Here is some information on litter removal in Parker:

    * Similar to other communities, the Town of Parker has an Adopt-a-Street Program that encourage volunteers and volunteer groups to sign up and help with trash pickup along Town roadways. For more information about this program, visit www.ParkerOnline.org/AdoptaStreet.

    * Streets Division crews pick-up litter along Town roadways when performing right-of-way mowing May through November. When needed, we also have staff pick up litter along an entire segment of roadway.  Both of the aforementioned tasks are typically completed on arterial and collector streets, which is where most litter is found. Staff will pick up larger debris when observed or when we are notified about the debris.

    * Town staff does not pick up litter along Parker Road (CO-83), as this roadway is owned and maintained by the Colorado Department of Transportation (COT), not by the Town of Parker.

    Are there any noise restrictions on groups using public spaces at certain times? For example loud music with base at 8am on Sunday morning that I can hear inside my house in Rowley Downs while my family is sleeping. Yes, I’m talking about the church that is (renting?) that space.

    Rowley Downs Home Owner asked 12 months ago

    Thank you for your question and we apologize for the delay in response. The Town's noise ordinance, which outlines restricted times and activities, can be found at the following link: https://library.municode.com/co/parker/codes/municipal_code?nodeId=TIT6HESA_CH6.03NORE_6.03.020DE

    Thank you.

    I believe that for our police department needs some type of should sleeve patch. The uniform is a representation of just the badge. Like with others LEO offices some have them most have them. For the town will speak volumes of having a town of Parker police dept having a the patches on both sleeves or along with a reversed US flag. The all dark blue seems so simple and too generic for anyone to copy.

    Leo asked 10 months ago

    Thank you for your email. We have passed this suggestion on to our Police Department.

    I hear Trader Joe’s is coming near Costco? Is this true? When?

    Bagoss1523 asked 9 months ago

    Thank you for your question! Trader Joe’s has submitted an application for a Fermented Malt Beverage License for 18374 Cottonwood Drive, Suite 150 in Parker. On Dec. 17, the Special Licensing Authority set petitioning boundaries and a public hearing date. The public hearing for the liquor license will be held Feb. 18. 2021 at the Special Licensing Authority meeting. This project is very early in the approval process.

    What is the population figure at full capacity build out and how long to reach that #? Thanks

    Traildog55 asked 11 months ago

    We estimate the Town’s current population at 57,538. The 2020 U.S. Census will release initial data in mid- to late 2021, so we will have an actual, official population count at that time. Our future population estimate based upon residential build-out at an undetermined point in the future is 80,000 to 85,000.   This assumes that all currently approved residential development projects and vacant land zoned for housing is built to the maximum allowed by Town approvals/zoning, a 3.5% housing vacant rate and a 10% adjustment for declining household size as the Town’s population ages. Please remember that this is a projection and the only thing we know is that the actual population at build-out will be different. 

    The future development build-out of the Town is likely 20-30 years out, but this cannot be accurately estimated because it is driven by the economy, housing market and private property owner/private sector investment decisions over which the Town has little to no influence.

    Is there a sales tax on new vehicles that Parker collects and is there a annual use tax on vehicle?

    Traildog55 asked about 1 year ago

    The Town of Parker collects sales tax on the purchase of a new or used vehicle if the owner of the vehicle is a Parker resident (or business). If Parker sales tax is not collected by the motor vehicle dealer, then the Parker Use tax is collected by Douglas County at the time of registration. The sales/use tax is a one-time charge; there is no annual use tax.

    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 about 1 year 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.
