Larimer County debates Scientific and cultural facilities district tax

LOVELAND, Colo. – Leaders in Larimer County are considering another attempt to put a scientific and cultural facilities district tax proposal on the general election ballot in 2016.

Bruce Freestone, who founded OpenStage Theatre Co. in Fort Collins with his wife Denise in 1973, is pushing cities to again consider the tax measure. He and Susan Ison, cultural services director for the city of Loveland, are inviting community members from northern Colorado to a meeting on Monday.

The Loveland Reporter-Herald reports organizers could seek voter approval in the 2016 election to create a taxing district to collect a 0.1 percent sales tax for cultural facility operations and maintenance in Larimer County.
