A Scio Township Land Preservation Levy Increase proposal is on the November 6, 2012 election ballot in Washtenaw County, which is in Michigan.

If approved, this proposal would authorize a .4942 mills property tax ($.4942 per $1,000 assessed taxable valuation) for 10 years to fund land purchases and preservation of land. The estimated first year revenue from this tax is $631,000.[1]

Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

Shall the previously authorized increase in tax limitation imposed under Article IX, Sec. 6 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963 on all taxable real and tangible personal property in the Township of Scio, Washtenaw County, be renewed in an amount not to exceed .4942 mill ($.4942 on each $1,000.00 of taxable value) for a period of ten (10) years, 2014 to 2023 inclusive, for the purpose of continuing to fund the voluntary purchase of land or interests in land throughout the Township, and enabling the Township to take advantage of matching funds from the City of Ann Arbor and elsewhere in order to preserve farmland, open space, wildlife habitat, scenic views, protect drinking water sources and the water quality of rivers and streams, and provide new parks, recreational opportunities and trails; and shall the Township levy such millage for said purpose? The estimate of the revenue the Township will collect if the millage is approved and levied by the Township in the 2014 calendar year is approximately $ 631,000. A portion of the revenue collected will be required to be distributed to the Scio Township Downtown Development Authority and the Village of Dexter Downtown Development Authority.[1][2]
