Amend. 74 would prove costly

The Denver Post - - OPINION - Dave Clabots,

The Colorado Farm Bu­reau’s po­si­tion on Amend­ment 74 is plain wrong. Colorado has for years held the po­si­tion that lo­cal con­trol of land use pol­icy is best for the cit­i­zens of Colorado. Amend­ment 74 will strip lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties such as yours of sen­si­ble land use pol­icy. In ef­fect your town or city could spend mil­lions of your tax dol­lars fight­ing land use pol­icy at the the state level in­stead of work­ing out a fair deal with a will­ing landowner. The Colorado Mu­nic­i­pal League rep­re­sents most Colorado cities and towns and op­poses Amend­ment 74 for this very rea­son. Colorado Mu­nic­i­pal League rep­re­sents We the Peo­ple.

Do you want your town or city spend­ing your tax dol­lars on ameni­ties such as parks, recre­ation, and open space or would you rather have your lo­cal elected of­fi­cials and staff en­gulfed in a costly le­gal land use bat­tle? Lo­cal land use pol­icy does not need to be con­trolled by the Colorado Con­sti­tu­tion. Vote NO on 74.
