Dear District Residents and Foothills Patrons,
We are very pleased to announce that the 2.75 mill levy increase with the 9 year sunset provision was approved by District resident voters! The unofficial vote count resulted in 13,712 in favor, 9,855 opposed.
The District will continue down the path it has been on since 2008 of working efficiently and being excellent stewards of taxpayer dollars. We will use the additional funds to: provide better park maintenance, improve conditions of parks and sports fields, improve neighborhood and community parks, improve outdated and failing equipment, repair and enhance trails for better connectivity, repair facilities and offset the overall increasing operational and maintenance costs.
We’ll begin in 2018 with the neighborhood parks and trails improvements that were outlined in our mill levy plan. Through that process, we look forward to working with the many HOAs, neighborhoods and all patrons of our great District. Stay tuned for project notices on Nextdoor.com and our e-newsletters.
I know I speak for our Board of Directors and all of our outstanding, dedicated staff members that we are excited to be able to positively work toward improving maintenance of parks and facilities and perform numerous capital projects to improve neighborhood parks and trails. We truly appreciate that the community believes in the mission of the District and I pledge to you that we will work hard to effectively utilize the additional funding to make our community the best it can be for everyone.
