Vail Town Council to review ballot question for spending $9.4 million Conference Center Fund

By Real Vail

Following favorable results from a recent telephone survey of registered voters, the Vail Town Council has directed the town attorney to prepare a ballot question for the Nov. 8 election for reallocation of the Conference Center Fund.

The Council will review a draft resolution setting the ballot question at its Aug. 2 meeting. The deadline to approve a resolution to authorize the ballot measure is Aug. 16.

Key findings from the telephone survey were presented to the Town Council on July 19 by a polling firm hired by the town to research the issue. Lori Weigel, a partner with the Colorado office of Public Opinion Strategies, conducted the survey from June 26 through July 10 which resulted in 150 responses.

The survey probed the level of support for three concepts contemplated by the Town Council for reallocation of the $9.4 million Conference Center Fund. Specifically, respondents were asked:

“If the election were being held today, would you vote “yes” or “no” on the following proposal?

Without increasing taxes, shall the Town of Vail use the remainder of the one and a half percent lodging and half percent sales tax revenues collected from January 1, 2003, through December 31, 2005 to fund the following projects that will promote recreation, promote tourism and support the economy in the Town of Vail:

Renovation of the clubhouse at the Vail golf course and Nordic Center including a new pavilion; Ford Park sports complex field expansion and restroom renovation; Ford Amphitheater improvements, including outdoor seating and restroom improvements?”

The survey found that a solid majority of Vail voters are supportive of using the already collected tax dollars for the three improvements. Specifically, 67 percent indicated they would vote “yes” in support of a ballot measure, while 27 percent said they would vote “no.” The margin of error is plus-or-minus eight percent.

The survey findings are available in their entirety on the town's website.

the proposal was ok, but its necessary more dialogue with both parts. Companies that make good education like and University of Cambridge ( needs to be talk. This is the role of Conference Center Fund.
