Executive Summary with Rationale and Impact:

Detailed description of the item and why we are doing it. This can be a separate attachment.

State statute requires that City Council approves or disapproves the BID budget for the upcoming year. The ordinance represents the City’s approval for the expenditures and revenues necessary to execute the responsibilities of the District.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

Business Improvement Districts (BID’s) are organized for the benefit of commercial properties to assist with infrastructure improvements and their maintenance, as well as having the ability to perform marketing and economic development activities.  This is the operating plan and budget for the Five Points BID and it is submitted annually.

 

 

General Description of District and Location:  The Five Points BID covers approximately 42 acres along the Welton corridor.  The BID area generally encompasses the commercial property on Welton Street, beginning at the north side of 20th Street going northeast along Welton Street terminating at Downing Street and 30th Avenue. Additionally, the parcel located adjacent to Welton Street on the southeast corner at Washington and 26th Avenue is included, as well as the parcels located on the southeast side of California Street

between 26th and 27th Streets. Personal property is not included in the BID boundary.

 

The BID services are designed to supplement existing City services and are in addition to City services that are currently provided along the Welton corridor.  BID services do not replace any existing City services.  The BID’s recommended work program includes activities and priorities developed by business and property owners.  The BID plans to provide services via these main categories: enhanced maintenance, physical improvements, economic development, safety, marketing, and promotion.

 

District Structure:  The District was created by City Council in June 2016 and the electors authorized a District mill levy in the November 2016 TABOR election.  The District raises revenue from a real property tax mill on commercial property.  Currently the District has no debt.  The proposed budgeted expenditures for 2020 are $275,116 which will be generated from a proposed 10.000 mill levy.  The Board of Directors is composed of 5 electors; concurrently with this budget and operating plan ordinance, the District is requesting an adjustment from 5 member to 7 members on the Board of Directors and a change in the number of members constituting a quorum from 3 to 4 members of the Board of Directors.   

 

For all BIDs that have mill levies: City Council will pass a resolution in December to levy all special district mill levies for the 2020 budget year.
