What is a delegate?

Highlands Ranch is divided into 93 Delegate Districts. Delegates are homeowners either elected by members within a Delegate District or appointed by their sub-association Board to represent their District and to cast votes on behalf of members within the Delegate District as provided in the Community Declaration. Delegates meet monthly to discuss a variety of topics about the Community Association. Some duties and powers of the Delegate body include amending and approving the community Bylaws, creating rules and regulations for the use and operation of the recreational facilities, proposing increases and/or reductions for the Recreation Function Common Assessments (RFCA’s) necessary for the operation of the Recreation Center and proposing and reviewing improvements to the recreational facilities. Delegates are elected in April of every year to serve the community.
