Woodgate Property Master Plan: Efforts to Build a Community Rec. Center (CRC)Click here to view the presentation from the 11.20.13 Community Meetings. This describes the final site plan, site phasing, facility layout and financing. Plan improvements grew directly from concerns heard from citizens during and following the last vote almost two years ago.The survey responses from the over 200 attendees on 11.20.13 were presented to the MRD Board. Click here to see a summary. These results contributed to the BOD decision to pursue a 0.2% or 1/5 of a percent sales tax initiative to bridge the gap in CRC funding. This is 20 cents additional sales tax on every $100 in purchases. If passed, our sales tax rate would increase from 7.65% to 7.85% until $11,700,000 was collected, after which it would sunset. If approved, our sales rate would remain lower than surrounding communities. This proposal compares with 1% increases passed in neighboring towns to build their CRCs. The percent increase approved in Delta, Cortez, Gunnison and Fruita is five times that which is needed in Montrose. We continue to gather feedback to give a chance to those unable to attend 11.20. Please let us know what you think by clicking here to take a quick survey. This input will be taken through the spring of 2014. Thank you.For more on the effort, click here.
