The issues

Local ballot measures

Ballot Issue 6A

The Fraser River Housing Partnership looks to increase property taxes in its area by a mill levy of 2.00 mills, or about $5.64 per month on a $500,000 property. The money would help address the shortage of affordable housing by building and buying housing throughout the area.

The partnership’s area includes Granby, Tabernash, Fraser, Winter Park and parts of unincorporated Grand County.

Marijuana retail legalization in the Town of Grand Lake

Three questions about legalizing retail marijuana sales will be on Grand Lake ballots this year. The first two, Issues 2A and 2B, deal with an excise tax of up to 15% on retail and medical marijuana sales, respectively. 

The third, Question 2C, asks voters if the town can allow the operation of marijuana businesses in Grand Lake limits and allow the board of trustees to implement regulations. The Grand Lake board has already begun discussing regulations, including starting the excise tax at 10% and restricting where marijuana shops could open, among other things.
