There was a Woodland Park Sales Tax Increase measure on the April 6 ballot in Teller County for voters in the city of Woodland Park.

This measure was defeated

  • YES 423
  • NO 1,695 Defeatedd[1]

This measure sought to increase the sales tax from 3 percent to 4 percent for a further twenty years. The money generated from this increase would have gone towards building a $14 million YMCA family fitness center in the city. This measure was brought to a vote by proponents who did not want the city to implement a higher sales tax without voter approval first. Many opponents though felt that the project was overly ambitious and would have sent the city into deeper debt.[2]

Current Statewide

A 2013 statewide measure, Amendment 66, would authorize Colorado to increase taxes with an expected revenue increase of $950 million for school funding.[3]
