This survey is related to the re-authorization of the 1999 half-cent sales and use tax that will sunset in 2019.
The City of Durango has a dedicated half-cent sales and use tax that was originally authorized by voters in 1999 for the construction, operation and maintenance of the Durango Community Recreation Center and development of the 7.5-mile Animas River Trail along the greenway from Dallabetta Park to Animas City Park. This 20-year tax sunsets in 2019 and the $14 million debt for the construction of the Recreation Center will be retired and paid in full. The City is exploring the re-authorization of the tax through 2039 and applying the revenue to a broad spectrum of parks and recreation projects. The purpose of the survey is to solicit community input into the tax re-authorization evaluation process currently underway for a potential referendum in the spring of 2015.
