The Partnership of Douglas County Governments was established in 2002. Inaugural members included the Towns of Castle Rock and Parker, the City of Lone Tree, the Town of Larkspur and the County of Douglas. In 2003, the Douglas County School District became a member. In 2005, the Partnership embraced Douglas County Libraries. Following the incorporation of Castle Pines, the County’s newest City joined the Partnership in 2008 as did the Highlands Ranch Metro District.
A nationally recognized model of collaborative statesmanship, the Partnership realizes that the mark of its political maturity is the way it has successfully sidelined individual agendas in the interest of working collaboratively on issues, projects and programs for the greater good of Douglas County.
Meeting regularly, the work of the Partnership strengthens intergovernmental and jurisdictional relationships, promotes greater understanding of individual community needs, and generates opportunities to produce regional solutions.
The Partnership represents 302,000 Douglas County citizens. In one-on-one conversations, service transactions, and community meetings, Partnership members are face-to-face, listening and responding to constituent needs every single day. We know our communities and their priorities and we are willing to share what we know in the interest of working with one another as a team, acting in the public interest and focused on the greater good of Douglas County, Colorado.
