The BOT will appoint two applicants to the DDA at their December 17, 2019 meeting starting at 7pm. Applicants are encouraged to attend both meetings

Interested parties should complete an application and return it to the Town Clerk, Miranda Fisher. Applications can be submitted via email at townclerk@nederlandco.org, in person at Town Hall, 45 West First St., or through postal mail at Town Hall, P.O. Box 396, Nederland, CO 80466.

November 5th Election Extends the Mil Levy! Thank you!

A Message from Steve Karowe, NDDA Chair.

The ballot measure to extend the mill levy in order to continue operations of the NDDA passed by a large margin yesterday. Thanks to everyone who voted in the election—we encourage everyone’s participation in the process.

We encourage input from everyone as we continue to pursue projects that enhance the DDA District, its business members, and greater Nederland, including business services and infrastructure projects.  Please come to our monthly meetings (2nd Wednesday of the month at the community center) so you can help us serve the DDA district and its members.

2019 Nederland Downtown Development Authority Election!

(The Town Clerk is the designated Election Official. Please contact  townclerk@nederlandco.org for forms, ballots, and information.)

Nederland Downtown Development Authority will hold an election on November 5th asking area business owners and land owners in the NDDA district to allow them to continue improvement projects in Nederland!

A vote for this Ballot Issue will NOT increase taxes. Money for DDA projects comes from TIF Funding, which predicts property value increases over time (historically proven) and borrows against them. This allows for improvements and programs focused on downtown. Since improvements further increase property values, it becomes an evolving payback system that is incredibly effective. Improvements also usually lead to more sales tax revenue that will benefit all of Nederland.

Approving the Ballot Issue is NOT a blank check for the Nederland Downtown Development Authority (NDDA). Each project is carefully evaluated, and brought to the townsfolk, property owners and Nederland Board of Trustees for review.  The Nederland Board of Trustees must approve all spending by the DDA.

Approving this Ballot Issue IS required for the NDDA to continue its work past 12/31/2019.

The NDDA is asking for approval from commercial property and business owners for authorization to pursue carefully considered infrastructure improvement and economic development programs in downtown Nederland.

We also ask you to communicate with the NDDA to ensure that projects that you are most passionate about are being addressed. The NDDA is committed to working on behalf of the talented, creative people who live and work in Nederland, but we need your input and a YES vote on this Ballot Initiative.
