Partnership supports YES vote on November 2017 ballot initiatives

School District 11, 3E

For our Downtown and our city to thrive, we must have a strong school district serving our city’s core. D-11 has crafted a clear and accountable school-by-school plan to upgrade aging facilities and technology and address teacher compensation, ensuring our students have the opportunity to succeed. It’s been nearly two decades since voters last approved a mill levy. The time is now to support the school district at our city’s heart. Downtown Partnership urges a YES vote on ballot issue 3E.

Stormwater, 2A

Colorado Springs is the only major city in the country that lacks a dedicated fund to properly maintain stormwater drainage and flood prevention. We’ve delayed long enough. This ballot issue provides a reasonable solution that will address crumbling infrastructure, protect private property, and free up general-fund resources desperately needed for parks and public safety. Downtown Partnership urges a YES vote on ballot issue 2A.

TABOR Reset, 1A

Ballot issue 1A provides resources for the local funding match needed to widen I-25 without raising taxes. Most importantly, the measure re-sets the TABOR base to allow El Paso County to appropriately take part in the economic recovery. Downtown Partnership urges a YES vote on ballot issue 1A.  El Paso County.
