Welcome to Murphy Creek Metropolitan District 3!  
We are a master planned community located on the Eastern Plains of Aurora, Colorado.  Our metro district currently has 1244 homes, many with beautiful views of the city-owned Murphy Creek golf course. 
In early February, Murphy Creek, LLC, the developers of Murphy Creek, sent a letter and email to District 3 residents entitled, "Responding to District Dialogues".  That letter and its inaccuracies and misdirections resulted in some confusion for homeowners.  District 3 has sent to homeowners a District Dialogue entitled, "Setting the Record Straight", and that publication addresses inaccuracies and misdirections from the developers' letter.  Please take a few minutes to read "Setting the Record Straight", which is posted below under District Dialogues.
After a very long closure, the Community Center is open once again for meetings, community events, and homeowner rentals!  Please read the Community Center Grand Re-Opening box below for more information.  You can also see the flyer on the District's Facebook page.  We hope to see you at the Grand Re-Opening and the Auto and Bike Show on Saturday, September 16, 2023, between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm!!
If you have questions, please submit them via the Contact Us form.

Transition Update

Goodwin & CO
March 31, 2023
Thank you for your patience with this transition.
The District is being integrated into Goodwin & Co.’s systems, and there have been some delays in processing payments received in the old system.  Although the setup has been delayed, please note that no late fees, interest, or processing fees will be assessed in March, April, and May. Please watch your email and mail for your new account number and ways to pay.  These should be received any day now!
Auto pay should be done through the HOMEOWNER'S bank to avoid the $1.50 processing fee. It can take up to 15 days after you register for your balance and options to populate. Once populated, you can pay online with ACH for a $1.50 processing fee or $1.50 processing fee plus 3% if using a credit card. The free options are to mail in a check to the address below, or you can contact your bank to send a check directly free of charge.
Please feel free to mail your payment directly to Cherry Creek/Goodwin & CO – 14901 East Hampden Avenue, #320, Aurora CO  80014 - to ensure it is processed in a timely manner.
Or, in the meantime, please send your payment to the address below: 
Murphy Creek Metropolitan District No. 3

You can use your old account number and association address, on the payment since the new one has not been assigned yet.
Cherry Creek/Goodwin will be mailing out information regarding the new owner portal in the coming weeks and will be happy to walk through questions at that time.
Please contact the Goodwin Customer Service Team- 855-289-6007 or Alliance Bank at 854-739-2331 directly and they will be happy to assist!
We hope this helps with some of the confusion!
Thank you and have a great day!

Community Center Grand Re-Opening!

As you may know, the Murphy Creek Community Center has been closed since December 23, 2023, as a result of burst water pipes which caused extensive and significant damage.  The Metro District #3 board is very pleased to announce that the Community Center is open once again for meetings, community events, and homeowner rentals.  The Board appreciates the community’s patience as it worked through architectural changes, plumbing and insulation problems, contractor availability, insurance issues, surprise challenges, etc.  If you would like more information and pictures about the extent of the damage, please read the May 15, 2023, District Dialogue that went out to the neighborhood via email and is posted on the District’s website.
To reserve the Community Center, please download the new Community Center Facility Use Packet from the District’s website or from the District’s Town Square.  Please email Shannon Torgerson at Goodwin & Company, as reservations will NOT be accepted by phone.
To celebrate, the District #3 Board invites the neighborhood to the Community Center Grand Re-Opening on Saturday, September 16, 2023, from 11:00am to 2:00 pm.  The Grand Re-Opening is being coupled with the Social Committee’s 11th Annual Murphy Creek Auto and Bike Show.  You can check out all the vintage and modern cars and motorcycles in the parking lot, and then take a tour of the inside of the Community Center.
Hot dogs, brats, chips, soft drinks, and cookies will be provided.  There will be special appearances by our first responders and drawings for prizes.  Please join us for this great community event!

2023 District Board Election Information

The 2023 District 3 board election scheduled for Tuesday, May 2, 2023, was not held, as there were fewer candidates than positions available.  This resulted in an uncontested election, and all candidates were elected by acclamation.  Please see the Election Info page for more detail.

License Plate Readers

In response to the increase in crime, and after several years of discussion at monthly board meetings, the Metro District 3 board approved the installation of license plate reading cameras at all entrances/exits to Murphy Creek. 
Use of these cameras in other neighborhoods has shown that the capture of time-stamped license plates can assist law enforcement in their investigation of crime and apprehension of criminals. 
The cameras were first recommended by Metropolitan District Public Safety, the security company for Murphy Creek, and they backed up their recommendation by agreeing to share the cost of the cameras with the District.
