About the District
There are actually two special districts (Meridian Ranch Metropolitan District and Meridian Service Metropolitan District) working for the Meridian Ranch development. Having more than one district is actually quite common when developing a large master-planned community like Meridian Ranch. In this case, one District is for financing and the second is the Meridian Service Metropolitan District which provides the services to the community.
The Meridian Service Metropolitan District is the “Service District” providing the water, wastewater (sanitation sewer) services, parks, trails, recreation facilities, and streetlights for the Meridian Ranch Community.
The other District is the Meridian Ranch Metropolitan District, which is the “Financing District” and does not provide any services to the community. This District contains almost all of the property within the development and uses a limited property tax to pay for the infrastructure and amenities within the community.
By having two Districts, the property owners can be assured that the development, as it was master planned, can provide the levels of service desired throughout the community.
