Sales tax to acquire open space in Flagstaff proposed

By Corina Vanek | Arizona Daily Sun

Flagstaff voters may have the chance to weigh in on a new sales tax that would be used to fund parks and open space projects in November 2018.

A group of citizens, calling themselves the “Yes on Parks” committee have proposed a one-eighth-cent sales tax, from which revenues would be placed into a fund dedicated to pay for capital projects to acquire and protect open space, acquire, develop and maintain parks, recreation facilities, sports facilities and trail systems.

In a presentation to the Flagstaff Sustainability Commission, Charles Hammersley, one of the citizens proposing the tax, said the idea is modeled on a 2002 citizens’ ballot measure that was passed in Coconino County, which was allowed to expire in 2014.
