Cleveland Metroparks Board of Park Commissioners today voted to place a 10-year levy on the November 5 ballot.
The Park District will ask voters to renew the existing 1.8-mill levy that was approved in 2004, with a slight increase of 0.9 mills. The levy will fund ongoing operations and maintenance of Cleveland Metroparks’ nearly 23,000 acres which includes 18 park reservations, miles of trails and the Zoo. The slight increase is necessary to offset declining property values and a reduction in state funding.
Levy dollars represent approximately 62% of the Park District’s annual $89 million budget.
