Voter-Approved Five-Year Program

Five Projects. Five Years. One Penny. 

In 2013, Commerce City voters approved a 1-percent sales and use tax increase for the construction, operations, and maintenance of new parks, recreation and road projects. The ballot measure was a result of a two-year, community-driven process to identify how to implement programs and services that address growing population needs, achieve vision, and build a better Commerce City.

The ballot measure identified five specific projects that would be delivered to residents by Jan. 1, 2019:

1. Three new neighborhood parks

2. New outdoor leisure pool

3. New recreation center (Bison Ridge Recreation Center)

4. Additions to the existing recreation center (Eagle Pointe Recreation Center)

5. Widening of Tower Road

The city delivered these voter-approved projects on schedule and within budget, with the following goals in mind:

  • Build high quality facilities to lower their long-term maintenance costs
  • Spend taxpayer dollars wisely and transparently
  • Complete projects on time
