Devil's Advocate Video: Urban Renewal and TIF Financing for Littleton but other locations too

Littleton, Colorado, has a special election March 3, 2015.  Jon Caldera on the Devil's Advocate (PBS programming) interviewed a guest familiar with urban renewal and the current ballot issue 300.  It is pointed out during the program that Aurora, Westminster, and other locations have similar issues so the video may be of some interest to others.

The result of the Littleton ballot issues are written in the Denver Post, but both measures passed.

It is nice to see a judge uphold the rule of law and the people's right to vote their will on this matter.

Now, the Gaylord Rockies project in Aurora is back in the news since an Adams County judge ruled that Aurora's special tax district does not meet TABOR requirements.  It seems that there was only one voter for that tax district.

Joseph William Gabriele,

My apologies for not knowing how to answer your question, but I live in Aurora and was only pointing out the issue and an unusual date for an ballot.  Perhaps the ballot issue is specific to Littleton, but as Jon Caldera commented in the video about instances in Westminster and other metro locations it is clear that everyone should be more informed of the actions of municipalities and other districts.

I appreciate the comment and question.

Wilma

I called the city clerk's office this morning to ask why I had not received a ballot. I was informed that I do not live in Littleton Proper but, rather, in an unincorporated section of Jefferson County. If the current ballot issue 300 affects me, shouldn't I be allowed to vote on it?
