City of Lone Tree Voting District Map

At the September 5, 2023 Lone Tree City Council Meeting, City Council unanimously approved changes to City voting districts ahead of the May 2024 municipal election. These changes are required by the City Charter to balance the total population in each of the City’s two voting districts as the east side of the City continues to see new residential development.

Projections showed a substantial population shift in the previous voting districts. District 1 was projected to have 7,396 residents (46.4% of the total population), while District 2 was expected to have 8,536 residents (53.6%). To balance this, City Council has decided to move two new apartment complexes, AVRA at RidgeGate Station and Talus at RidgeGate, from District 2 to District 1. Additionally, the NorthSky neighborhood will shift from District 1 to District 2.

With these adjustments, District 1 will now have an estimated 8,026 residents (50.4%), and District 2 will have approximately 7,906 residents (49.6%).

Restrictions on Political Signage

Section 16-29-40 of the Lone Tree Municipal Code lists the several types of temporary signs that are prohibited, most notably, signs in the public right-of-way or on public property that are not approved or otherwise exempted may be removed by the City and discarded. Those who install such signs may be subject to a penalty in accordance with Chapter 16 of the Municipal Code.

Political Signs are allowed on private property with the property owner’s permission, but must follow the following guidelines established in City Code:

Maximum sign area:  9 square feet per side
Maximum height:  6 feet
Maximum Number:  There is no limit to the number of signs per candidate or ballot issue on private property, but number may be regulated by an HOA.
City Sign Permit Required: No

Political Signage in HOAs

House Bill 21-1310 broadened the freedom of expression in Colorado, requiring common interest communities (CICs) or homeowner associations (HOAs) controlled by the Colorado Common Interest Ownership Act (CCIOA). In summary, HOAs must allow the display of any noncommercial flag or sign at any time, but may still control how many signs you place, where you place them, and the size of such signage.

Specifically, Colorado law states that:

  • an association shall not prohibit the display of a sign by the owner or occupant of a unit on property within the boundaries of the unit or in a window of the unit;
  • the association shall not prohibit or regulate the display of window signs or yard signs on the basis of their subject matter, message, or content;
  • an association may prohibit signs bearing commercial messages and establish reasonable, content-neutral sign regulations based on the number, placement, or size of the signs or related to other objective factors. See Section 38-33.3-106.5 (1)(c), C.R.S.
