Voters Can Prepare Now For EPURA Special Election

By: Kate Rusch
PIO Town of Estes Park
On January 12, 2010 voters will decide whether or not to abolish the current Estes Park Urban Renewal Authority (EPURA) and if a vote of approval will be required before the creation of any new Urban Renewal Authority. The citizen-initiated ordinance was submitted to the Town Clerk’s office on July 8, 2009. The Town Board did not adopt the ordinance and subsequently scheduled the Special Election.
The Larimer County Clerk and Recorder’s office will administer the Special Election with mail-in ballots only. Voters registered within Town limits are eligible to vote; since EPURA boundaries are inside Town limits, residents outside the Town limits are not eligible to vote on the issue. Anyone desiring to vote in the Special Election who is not already registered must register by December 14, 2009. Applications are available at the Town Clerk’s office at 170 MacGregor Avenue, Room 150 or at http://www.elections.colorado.gov/Content/Documents/voter_registration_forms/fillable_combo_vr_english.pdf
Ballots will be mailed to all active registered voters during the week of December 21, 2009. Voters who need a ballot mailed to an address other than their registered address must submit a Mail-In Ballot Application no later than January 5, 2010.
