ELID - A 22% Higher Evergreen Sales Tax
Our Simple Petition - Jefferson County CO. Commissioners, Please do not approve ELID
Please sign our petition to stop DEED and ELID from raising our sales taxes in Evergreen, Colorado. Even if you live outside of the proposed tax district, you may want to visit or shop in Evergreen.
ELID – (Evergreen Local Improvement District) A 22% Higher Sales Tax n Evergreen
- ELID proposes a 22% Sales Tax Increase from 4.5% to 5.5%
- Higher Sales Taxes will be harmful to Evergreen Businesses and Consumers
- ELID’s urban projects will change the mountain environment we love about Evergreen
- ELID will create a new layer of “Government” and a new Tax Authority
The (DEED), Downtown Evergreen Economic District is a private group of downtown Evergreen property and business owners proposing to create a new layer of government called a "Local Improvement District" for the greater Evergreen area. The estimated annual revenue generated by the tax is $900 thousand per year with which ELID intends to construct roundabouts & other urban-type projects that would be detrimental to our mountain environment.
ELID and this New Tax Authority is not needed to maintain the quality of life we have in Evergreen Colorado. If the community wants these urban improvements in the future, they can be funded through taxes we already pay.
