COLORADO – Loveland Rejects Sales Tax Measures To Fund Transportation, Facilities, Fire Stations

Loveland voters rejected two ballot measures that would have increased the city’s sales tax to 3.5% and raised about $10.5 million in the first year and $224.7 million over the 21-year life of the taxes. 

Ballot issue 2A would have added a 0.3% sales and use tax increase to pay for six  projects:

  • Widening and improving U.S. Highway 34 and Taft Avenue
  • Renovating and replacing two fire stations
  • Adding bike and pedestrian underpasses
  • Building a new library
  • Renovating and expanding the museum
