IMPLEMENTING PROPOSITION 123 Monday at NOON on Zoom January 23

Implementing Prop 123:

Funding Housing in Colorado

Dear CSLC Members & Friends

,Thank you to all those who joined us for our first meeting of the year on January 9!

The opening-day excitement was palpable among the people gathered at First Baptist.

Our upcoming meetings will take place on Zoom unless otherwise announced, but we’ll be looking out for opportunities to combine the flexibility of Zoom with the energy of in-person gatherings.

You’re invited to join us next Monday for our next program.

We’ll gather online on Monday, January 23 at noon to discuss the implementation of Proposition 123, which was approved with 52.6% Yes by Colorado voters in November.

Prop 123 will impact wide-ranging areas related to affordable housing, development, services on homelessness, and more, while exempting the money from our state’s revenue limit.

Policymakers and advocates will be working this session to figure out how to implement this new opportunity while working through some of its potential challenges.

We look forward to seeing you there!
