Amend. 74 would prove costly
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.
