Colorado Springs City Council Votes to Add Land Swap Measure to November Ballot

Colorado Springs City Council has voted to put a Charter Amendment on the November ballot that would make it harder for the city to sell or trade public parks in a land swap deal. 

It would require a public vote before selling or trading park properties, and to leave the decision in the hands of council but require a super majority 6 to 3 vote.

Councilman Wayne Williams proposed the super majority option.

The decision to put both options on the ballot isn’t final. 

Council will take a second vote in two weeks.
