TBD Colorado is a nonpartisan, collaborative effort designed to create informed and constructive conversations among Coloradans about some of the biggest issues facing the state. TBD Colorado began hosting community meetings throughout Colorado in April and May. Several public summits were held in June. No state dollars are being spent on TBD Colorado.

Move Colorado endorsed Aurora Question 2B, which is on the ballot for voter approval in November of 2012. If passed, Question 2B will allow the City of Aurora to continue to collect 2.048 mills of property tax to finance 21 separate road improvement projects in Aurora. These much-needed construction projects include road widening, turn lanes, median improvements, pedestrian safety enhancements, bike lanes, and additional sidewalks. These construction projects will improve mobility, increase safety and alleviate traffic congestion for tens of thousands of motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians who use Aurora’s streets and sidewalks – without increasing taxes.

Move Colorado endorsed a ballot measure extending the Pikes Peak RTA sales and use tax, which will appear on the ballot this November in several Colorado municipalities. The sales and use tax, which funds the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority, was originally approved by voters in 2004. Colorado Springs, Calhan, Ramah, El Paso County, Manitou Springs, and Green Mountain Falls are all parties to the authority. The initiative will extend for ten years the existing 0.55% sales and use tax, which sunsets on December 31, 2014.
