Manitou Springs voters will get the chance to vote on extending their Trails and Open Space (TOPS) tax in the November election.
A vote YES on 2F will extend the .8 mil property tax ( $6.38 per residence and $23.20 per business PER YEAR) through 2032.
A vote yes on 2G will extend a .1% sales tax through 2023.
Both taxes will continue to provide matching funds for open space, trails and parks grants. Red Mountain, Iron Mountain and Cormack Open Spaces as well as the Intemann and Red Mountain trails were all purchased or created as a result of Manitou’s TOPS tax.
