EV Dog Park Memorial Press Release

The EagleVail Metro District Board has voted to approve the proposal to create a dog memorial in West Park, located at the far west end of Deer Blvd, community manager Jeff Layman announced today. Funded by private donations and volunteer efforts of EagleVail citizens, the proposal calls for redesign of the existing gazebo in the park, located between the playground and the volleyball courts.

“Everyone is excited about the opportunity to create something in the community that brings people together in a way that reflects one of the unique attributes of EagleVail,” Layman said today. “And it turns out that in our neighborhood, the bond between dogs and people exists not only with owners, but with their owners’ neighbors. And West Park has been a meeting place where everyone’s gotten to know literally everyone and their dog for years.” To read the entire press release please click here

About the 1% sales tax proposal in EagleVail

What is the issue?

The EagleVail Metropolitan District, like many other districts across the state that are supported largely by property tax, has had its revenue reduced by two state laws- The Gallagher and Tabor Amendments- that constrain the amount of money the District receives via property taxes.

Annual revenue in 2017 is down $250,000 annually from 2010's revenue while annual expenses have increased from approximately $2.5 million to $3.5 million.


That, combined with the gradual increase in operational costs, the downturn in golf course revenues from more competing courses and fewer people playing golf, and other factors, has created a budgetary imbalance intensified by the economic crash of 2008.

EagleVail has also added and enhanced amenities and facilities during this period, and because the community and some of its facilities are 40 years old, replacement or major maintenance projects have to also be undertaken to maintain value throughout the community.


Over the last 10 years much of the imbalance has been covered by deferring work on capital improvements, by using the district's reserves and through financial support received from EagleVail Property Owners Association. To read more please click here. A current list of the items to be paid for with sales tax revenue, including amounts, can be viewed here.  Please note that expenditures are approximate.
