The Evergreen Local Improvement District (ELID) was formed by the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners in 2020 for the purpose of constructing roadway safety projects in and around Evergreen’s activity centers. The projects will be designed, constructed and maintained by Jefferson County.
The funding stream for the proposed Improvements will be provided to the ELID through its partnership with the Evergreen Economic District (EED) and the Evergreen Legacy Fund (ELF), which collects a voluntary 1% donation on the value on sales of products and services at businesses within the Evergreen area. Other grants and donations could provide supplemental funding.
If the ELF funding stream is insufficient to support the proposed improvements, the ELID could be funded in the future by imposing a sales tax throughout the proposed ELID. Such a sales tax would not be imposed unless and until it is approved in an election of the electors of the ELID.
