Gary Godden, founding principal of Godden|Sudik Architects, was elected on May 8th to a four-year term with the five-member Board of Directors for the Park Meadows Metropolitan District (PMMD). The District is a governmental entity that provides services including street improvements, transportation, safety protection through traffic and safety control devices, and storm drainage. The District cooperates with the City of Lone Tree and Douglas County to provide major capital improvements to arterial and collector streets to benefit District residents as well as the maintenance of landscaped improvements within medians and rights-of-way along the major streets. Through his career as an architect and land planner, as well as serving as a planning commissioner with the City of Lone Tree and Douglas County, Gary has become familiar with the efforts that the PMMD has made to improve the infrastructure of the District and, in turn, enhancing the quality of life for its residents. Gary vows to make sure that the PMMD maintains its high standards in protecting property values while creating and maintaining well-designed and attractive projects for the District's residents. As a member of the PMMD Board, he will work to ensure that the District's project funds are spent in a cost-conscious and effective manner, and that high design standards continue to be maintained for the City that he loves.
