Crown Mountain Park and Recreation District Tax Levy, 4A (November 2009)
The referendum sought to add an additional tax to the district in the amount of $.36 on property taxes. The additional tax, along with the original tax, would go towards repairing and maintaining recreational facilities. The additional tax would only be in place for one year.
The measure was defeated.
The ballot language read as follows:
Shall Crown Mountain Park and Recreation District taxes be increased $182,191, by the imposition of a one-time ad valorem property tax rate not to exceed .36 mills, to be levied one year only for collection in 2010, to be used solely for the purpose of preparing a capital master plan for facilities including, but not limited to, a recreation center, resulting in a total district mill levy rate for collection in 2010, exclusive of refunds, abatements, or debt service, not to exceed .36 mills; and shall the district be authorized to collect, retain and spend all tax revenue collected from such total property tax rate, as a voter-approved revenue change, offset and exception to the limits which would otherwise apply under TABOR (Article X, Section 20 of the Colorado Constitution) or any other law and as a waiver of the 5.5% limitation under section 29-1-301, C.R.S.?
