Summary of the Text of the Referendum

If this referendum passes, Ordinance No. 10, 2021 would be repealed. Ordinance No. 10, 2021 amends Chapter 6, Title 14 of the Greeley Municipal Code relating to the dedication of raw water for city water service to consolidate all existing raw water dedication policies into the Municipal Code and to revise those provisions in three areas: 1) allow dedication of Raw Water Credits, 2) codify graduated raw water requirements for landscaping associated with commercial and multi-family developments, and 3) clarify that Raw Water Dedication for large parcel single family developments is required for the developed portion of the lot.

Explanation of SGW Objection

The underlined and bold portion above, allowing dedication of Raw Water Credits from Developers, is the portion of the Ordinance that SGW objects to. It was unanimously passed by the City Council in order for the City of Greeley to close on the Terry Ranch/Wingfoot deal on April 5th. The City of Greeley has previously accepted only Water or Cash in Lieu of Water from Developers.
