Special Alert – Vote For County Trails November 6th

Special Alert – Vote For County Trails November 6th

 

On the November ballot in Washtenaw County will be a renewal of a tax millage that would help fund the work of the Washtenaw County Parks & Recreation Commission. Specifically, the millage would renew the Commission’s the development and acquisition fund, which largely goes to projects like the Border To Border (B2B) Trail and other non-motorized paths under the Commissions Connecting Communities program (https://www.washtenaw.org/953/Connecting-Communities-Grants). Locally Bike Ypsi, the Friends of the Border To Border Trail (www.bordertoborder.org), and the Washtenaw Bicycling & Walking Coalition (www.wbwc.org) have endorsed the millage renewal.

 

It should be noted that this ten-year millage was first approved by the citizens of Washtenaw County in 1988, and has been renewed for an additional ten year period two times. The ¼ mill renewal, though relatively modest, costs the typical homeowner about $30 per year. If approved, this tax would be levied for 10 years starting in December 2020 and would raise an estimated $3.84 million that year.

 

So please on November 6th vote yes on the “Proposition to Renew the Tax Limitation for Parks and Recreation Purposes Including Acquisition, Development, Maintenance and Operation of Park Lands and Recreation Facilities for the Benefit of Washtenaw County Citizens.”
