A shared vision
Achieving the shared vision for The Lakes at Centerra is assisted by two distinct, yet complementary entities:
The Lakes at Centerra Metropolitan District (District) and The Lakes Master Homeowner’s Association, Inc. (Association or LMHA).
These entities collaborate in providing resident programs and events and preserving special community landscapes and amenities.

LAKES MASTER HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION, INC.
Achieving our shared vision for The Lakes is facilitated by a Colorado nonprofit organization, known as The Lakes at Centerra Master Homeowners Association, Inc. (or LMHA, for short).
The LMHA works in partnership with residents to provide dynamic leadership for The Lakes community by cultivating a rich variety of activities and programs and by preserving special community landscapes and neighborhood settings.
Governed by a Board of Directors and overseen by a Community Operations Manager, the Community Association enforces the Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions of The Lakes (“CC&Rs”)* – a system of standards and procedures for the overall development, administration, and preservation of the residential portion of The Lakes at Centerra. All residential property owners are members of LMHA. There are also four sub-associations and one benefitted service area (listed below) within the Lakes that have additional services and governance for those homeowners.
Lakes at Centerra METROPOLITAN DISTRICT
The Lakes is located within The Lakes at Centerra Metropolitan District, – a government entity and political subdivision of the State of Colorado designed to serve as a perpetual quasi-municipal corporation to finance public infrastructure and to provide governmental structure for the operation and maintenance of District improvements and facilities.
Governed by an elected five-person Board of Directors and overseen by a District Manager, the District benefits Lakes homeowners through property taxes collected through Larimer County in the form of a Mill Levy to support the construction, maintenance, and replacement of open spaces, natural areas, parks, landscapes, detention ponds, and other public infrastructure. All residential property owners are members of the District. The District is managed by Pinnacle Consulting Group.
