As a Lakewood resident, you have a lot of say in how your city operates, what kind of services it provides and how it spends your tax dollars. One of the critical decisions you make as a resident is determining the level of funding for your government. Residents must vote on any proposed new tax or any tax increase as required by both Lakewood’s City Charter and the state law known as the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR).

Lakewood launched this community conversation to listen to your opinions about the level of service the city should provide and talk about how TABOR affects funding for additional city services including open space purchases. This conversation involves your priorities and the kind of city you want to live in, so take a look around to learn more.
