Downtown Colorado, Inc.’s advocacy efforts include representing downtown and commercial district interests in the development of state policies and sharing information among communities. As an organization, DCI also follows legislation that has an impact on local community development and downtown revitalization.
Below are the current official positions of Downtown Colorado, Inc. on Colorado past and current legislation:
House Bill 1402
Senate Bill 192 Amendment 60 Amendment 61 Proposition 101
Amendments 60 and 61 and Proposition 101 will appear on the November 2010 statewide ballot. These measures will significantly damage Colorado's state and local governments from funding their most basic levels of services related to safety, education, and transportation. The cumulative and destructive nature of these three measures ensures that Colorado will surrender its competitive standing to attract large and small employers alike, resulting in little to no economic growth for the state, a steady decline in property values, and erosion of the state and local tax base.
On April 20, 2010, the Downtown Colorado, Inc. board of directors signed a resolution opposing these three measures.
