Foothills Metropolitan District Ballot Issue 6E

Without increasing the tax rate currently being levied by Foothills Park & Recreation District for the payment of debt on general obligation bonds, shall the district continue to collect such 1.534 mills generating up to $1,962,073 in property tax revenue in 2021 and such additional amounts generated annually thereafter to be used for purposes including capital improvements and operational priorities in order to stabilize and enhance the recreational opportunities and related mental and physical wellness provided by the district to all residents, directly related to: · maintaining, conserving and improving parks, open spaces, and natural areas throughout the district; · improving, connecting and extending recreational trails for walkers, hikers, and bikers; · providing and improving existing active recreation opportunities, programs and facilities for all residents including seniors, families and children; · enhancing water conservation and energy efficiency by replacing or improving aging systems;and shall such revenues continue to be collected, retained and spent as voter approved revenue and spending as provided by the Colorado Constitution and Colorado revised statutes; all done with oversight by an elected citizen board and subject to an independent audit published on the district's website?______Foothills Park & Recreation District is requesting an extension of an existing 1.534 mill levy. On the November 2020 ballot, 6E will ask voters, without raising taxes or imposing a new tax, to extend the levy approved by voters in 2000. If approved, this will not raise your taxes; it would only extend an existing tax originally used for debt payments of a general obligation bond which retires at the end of 2020.FHPRD is a special district founded in 1959, not part of the City of Littleton or Jefferson County. It is a separate agency with its own taxing authority and no affiliation with any other government agency. Special districts are created by state law to serve specific community needs – recreation, fire protection, water, etc. Our specific focus is on parks and recreational facilities and activities only.
