As of January 1, 2019, fire and emergency services in the City of Littleton will be handled by South Metro Fire Rescue
Should voters choose to pay for South Metro fire services through property taxes, $3.1 million from the City’s General Fund will automatically be dedicated to street maintenance and improvements each year. $3.1 million will assist with street and infrastructure improvements including:
  • Catch up on deferred street maintenance
  • Congestion and traffic improvements

In Citizen Surveys since 2012, residents have told the city that street maintenance and improvements are a top priority.

Street quality is assessed on a scale of 1-100 known as the Pavement Condition Index (PCI). Currently, the quality of Littleton’s streets rates well below the target score and ranks poorly among peer cities.

As streets further deteriorate, it costs more to make improvements. Every $1 put towards preventative maintenance saves $4-5 in future repairs. Making an investment now will reduce costs down the road.
