The Colorado Springs City Council holds its next session on Aug. 13. We've reviewed the agenda and prepared this report of what's scheduled for consideration.

Headlining the upcoming agenda is a resolution that would put the question of whether to spend up to $7 million, the estimated 2018 revenue above the revenue and spending limit, for city parks, sports and cultural facilities, and trail improvements on the Nov. 5, 2019 ballot.

The City Council is also scheduled to discuss another November ballot issue — whether to extend for five years the temporary sales and use tax for road repairs at a reduced rate of 0.57%.

Other agenda items include:

  • A resolution to create an intergovernmental agreement with the Colorado Department of Transportation and the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority for landscaping costs associated with the I-25/Cimarron Expressway Interchange Project.
  • An ordinance to rezone 8.69 acres at 2420 Victor Place to Planned Industrial Park with Airport Overlay.
