El Paso County Parcel 6311110002
From the comments on this story [facade] propped up by the Colorado Springs Gazette
You mentioned multi-family community development....
Here is an example of just one of the city owned residential properties...7220 Austin Bluffs Parkway...80 units in 8 buildings on 4.08 acres. These units were constructed in the year 2000 and purchased new by the city housing authority. Purchase price is not indicated by the assessors record, nor does it say who constructed them. The assessor has the 2009 market value at over 5 million dollars, but, of course, no taxes are paid on this land or the improvements.
You can check this out for yourself on the El Paso County Assessor web site -
then click on "parcel record search" and enter schedule # 6311110002 in the appropriate box.
Creekside at Norwood - Colorado Springs Housing Authority
At first I couldn't believe I was at the right place; as per the street numbering, it seemed 7220 should be in the dirt lot on the East side of Austin Bluffs. And these units couldn't POSSIBLY be "Public Housing" could they?
"The grounds of Creekside afford several forms of recreation for you and your family. There's a tot lot where kids can romp and roll, or you can bike, hike or stroll on the Cottonwood Trail system. The clubhouse has a business center (copier, fax, and computer) for your personal use, and a pool and jacuzzi for exercise and relaxation."
But sure enough, the name of the development matches the name on the El Paso County Assessor's site:
LOT 1 CREEKSIDE AT NORWOOD SUB
Exempt from property taxes? That doesn't sound very "Accountable"
