City Council approved an ordinance at its July 27 meeting to place a proposition on the November 3, 2020, ballot for voter consideration. The ballot will read as follows:
Proposed language for Proposition C for the November 3 ballot:
Shall the City of Creve Coeur impose a sales tax of one-half of one percent for the purpose of providing funding for local parks and stormwater control for the City of Creve Coeur?
Yes _______ No _______
If approved by a majority of voters, the half-cent sales tax revenue will be used to improve and maintain local parks and stormwater infrastructure in Creve Coeur.
Adopted in 2019, the Parks and Recreation Master Plan is a community-driven guide that identifies needed improvements in city parks and includes recommendations for new amenities and renovations, trail system expansion and new recreation facilities. The sales tax would provide funding to implement this plan.
The Stormwater Master Plan, adopted in 2012, identifies problem areas within Creve Coeur where excess runoff causes flooding, erosion and potential damage to properties.
The City’s Finance Committee joined the Parks & Historic Preservation Committee and Stormwater Committee in recommending the measure be placed on the ballot.
