According to a previous Jefferson county school board member, school bonds are used exclusively to build new schools for newly constructed housing. A subsidy for out-of-control housing growth like 5A & 5B that raises taxes and drives off big potential employers like Amazon. We’re told these funds will re-build existing schools and provide smaller classes but when has that happened? And because newly occupied homes pay no property tax until the following year and then only for the months occupied, it’s clear that new student ready schools are a burden for current tax payers and not new home buyers or builders.
Arvada’s 10,000 mostly unaffordable mansions being built at the abandoned Rocky Flats nuclear site will require at least two new middle schools, four or five grade schools, and a new high school at a cost of at least $200 Million. How long would Arvada council members last if their city residents had to pay to build their own schools without all of us Jeffco school district residents’ paying higher taxes to support Arvada’s growth?
