Greeley Ballot Proposal Survey
The City of Greeley is working with Colorado Opinion Research to conduct a comprehensive polling survey. Polling helps us gather valuable insights from the community on potential ballot proposals.
Greeley is one of the fastest-growing communities in the country, and this is an opportunity to help city leaders fine-tune their focus in shaping Greeley’s future.
We are asking registered voters about their comfort level on potential ballot proposals regarding:
- Food Tax Extension:
- Renew the 3% food tax currently in place through December 31, 2030, to continue to support our city’s growth and infrastructure
- Permanently extend the 3% food tax to continue supporting our city’s growth and infrastructure.
- Public Safety Sales and Use Tax Increase of 0.25% (25 cents on a $100 purchase) to support and improve public safety services, including but not limited to staffing, equipment, technology, and facilities for city police and firefighters.
- Open Space Sales and Use Tax Increase of 0.25% (25 cents on a $100 purchase) to improve outdoor recreation and protect natural habitats by creating a new, dedicated tax for the purchase, development and maintenance of natural areas, trails and open spaces.
- Without Raising City Taxes, Increase City Debt to Fund Critical Transportation by $65 million over 50 years to fund transportation projects including but not limited to:
- upgrades to Highway 34 interchanges at 35th Avenue and 47th Avenue,
- a regional transit center with expanded bus service and routes to Denver and the airport,
- safety improvements to Greeley’s major transportation corridors like downtown 8th Avenue.
