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.
