Episode 165: Special Tax Districts


In this episode we sit down with Sarah Humbargar, formally of the Downtown Partnership (and now with Living City Ventures) to discuss what special tax districts are and how they work to direct tax dollars to infrastructure development.

We dive into some of the more well known special districts around town and talk about the good, and bad, of the use of special tax districts to fill funding gaps.

You can check out some of the Special Tax Districts in Colorado Springs by visiting the city website, and make sure to check your property tax statement – that is how you know what “special” district you might be in!

(Thanks to friend of the show Tom for the topic idea!)

Enjoy the show!
