Unofficial Results of Littleton Special Election

Post Date:11/09/2022

Voters Approve All Five City-Initiated Questions

Littleton voters approved all five city-initiated measures in the November 8 special election along with a citizen-initiated question. “The city council and staff are pleased that voters approved all of the questions the city placed on the ballot,” said Littleton Mayor Kyle Schlachter. “Even though there were many matters to consider, it is clear voters looked carefully at the issues and made informed decisions that will keep Littleton moving forward,” he added.

The 5% Lodger’s Tax on rooms at hotels, motels, and short-term rentals will generate approximately $975,000 per year invested into arts, culture, and tourism programs that will make Littleton an even better place to live and visit.

DDA Boundary MapThe Charter Amendment will modernize the city’s competitive bidding threshold enabling award of contracts to vendors who provide the best overall value to the city.

Three questions to organize the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) to finance improvements in Downtown Littleton will: establish the DDA; collect, retain, and expend the full revenues received by the authority; and establish a mill levy to fund operations such as public safety, maintenance, and marketing. City council is accepting applications for the DDA Board between November 9-23. Those interested in serving on the DDA Board must reside, operate a business, or own a property within the boundary of the DDA. The DDA Board Application and DDA Boundary Map is available on the city's website.

The citizen-initiated ballot question repealing a 2021 council decision regarding zoning at Aspen Grove that would have allowed up to 2,000 residential units was approved for the ballot earlier this year. However, since that time, Aspen Grove submitted a revised plan under the new Unified Land Use Code that was approved by planning commission allowing less than 500 new residential units. “Voters were presented with a question concerning Aspen Grove that was confusing since the project they were voting on is no longer being considered,” Schlachter said. “A Master Development Plan was approved by the planning commission in August that complies with the city’s land use code and will allow far fewer units than initially proposed,” he added.

These results are as of 8:54 a.m. November 9 and are unofficial until certified by the Arapahoe, Douglas, and Jefferson County boards of canvass.
