HB 13-1036: Modifying Law Pertaining to Local Improvement Districts

On January 9, 2013, Rep. Jonathan Singer introduced HB 13-1036 – Concerning the Authority of a Local Improvement District.  This summary is published here courtesy of the Colorado Bar Association’s e-Legislative Report.

The bill modifies certain provisions of the law governing county and city and county local improvement districts (districts) to make the provisions consistent with the law governing improvement districts. The bill allows a district in which a sales tax is levied to include noncontiguous areas.

The bill allows a district to use sales tax revenues for the organization, promotion, marketing, and management of public events. It further specifies procedures for a property owner to petition for inclusion in or exclusion from a district. On Jan. 23, the Local Government Committee amended the bill and sent it to the Appropriations Committee to deal with the fiscal impact to the state.
