History: The Inverness Metropolitan Improvement District was formed in 1980 and has been instrumental in the development of recreational, traffic and common area infrastructure for the Inverness Park. The District owns and maintains the John Derry Park recreational amenity. The District works with local jurisdictions – Arapahoe County, Douglas County and Centennial to maintain the roads, traffic signals, signage, and common area landscaping within the Inverness Park.
Inverness was originally designed as a suburban business park, contained few sidewalks and did not have any residential construction until 2005. The District participated in the construction of the Dry Creek and County Line pedestrian bridges connecting the park to the Denver RTD Light Rail stations. The District has also added over 5 miles of sidewalks and pathways to improve pedestrian connections within the park and to the light rail stations
Architectural Control: The District administers the Inverness Planning and Architectural Control Committee (IPACC) which ensures its high standard of building design and land planning. Through a system of reviews, closely following the normal architectural design process (as suggested by the American Institute of Architects), IPACC must first review and approve all new construction and signage within the Inverness Business Park to maintain consistency in the community. IPACC is also responsible for covenant control.
Recreation: During summer months, the District coordinates a summer program of recreational league softball and volleyball team sports for the tenants of the Business Park. All games are played at the John Derry Memorial Park. We would love for you to come out and play! The softball fields, volleyball courts, and the picnic area pavilition can be reserved for corporate and private events. Click on Recreation for more information on the leagues and field rentals.
