Legislative Alerts

There are two ballot questions in the March 3 special election in Littleton.

Vote NO on Initiative 300: Initiative 300 would require elections for urban renewal which would add time, risk and unpredictability—and costs to Littleton taxpayers—to investing in our community.  A closer look at Initiative 300 shows that it will close the door on opportunities for improvements in key commercial corridors, harm to our community’s competitiveness, and threaten our economy, property values and local programs that we depend on such as senior services, public safety (police, fire, emergency response), our library and museum, and maintaining our streets and roads.

Vote YES on Referendum 2A: Littleton Strong supports Referendum 2A which, if approved by voters on March 3, would strengthen protections for Littleton property owners in urban renewal districts by prohibiting the use of eminent domain and condemnation, unless specifically requested by affected property owners in a ‘friendly’ condemnation. This protects property owners and is the right direction for Littleton, not the far-reaching and high-risk anti-urban renewal Initiative 300.
