Mailboxes for each subdivision within Lorson Ranch are installed by the developer and keys are given to each builder who will then deliver them to each new homeowner. Each homeowner should contact their respective builder to obtain their keys. Resale and rental keys should be provided by the current landlord. If your mailbox keys are lost or unreturned from a prior tenant, call Steve Phillips with S&K Services at 719-290-3300. There is cost to re-key your mailbox.

Funding for future parks is contingent on grants which have been applied for. In addition to these parks there are trails along Jimmy Camp Creek and the north property line as well as bicycle lanes along Fontaine that have been installed by the Lorson Ranch Metropolitan District.

Originally Widefield School District 3 (WSD3) selected five school sites on Lorson Ranch. Due to economic concerns the school district has not yet selected a site for building the first school. In 2014, WSD3 upgraded King Elementary (the school used by all Lorson children attending WSD3) by investing five million dollars in that location. Lorson Ranch has dedicated 70 acres to El Paso County for school sites. Site selection and school construction is a decision controlled by WSD3.
