Maintaining Public Improvements
The Bandera Boulevard Special Improvement Maintenance District was established on September 22, 2003, by the City of Pueblo and the electors of the district. On November 4, 2003, the electors of the district also approved an assessment of a mill levy of 5 mills.
The purpose of the district is to maintain public improvements, including landscaping, streetscape, street medians, street signs, trails and paths, irrigation facilities, and associated water system improvements that are located within the right of way corridor of Bandera Boulevard and within 685 feet of the right of way corridors of intersecting collector and minor arterial streets within the district.
How the District Operates
The City Council appoints a five-member advisory committee that prepares recommendations relating to the public improvements to be maintained with the district funds. The Planning and Community Services Department provides staffing for the advisory committee meetings and also administers the private contracts for the maintenance of the improvements completed within the district. The district funds are currently used for the following areas:
Landscaping on both sides of Bandera Boulevard and the center medians from Bridle Trail to the south past Pascadero Drive
Landscaping extending west of Bandera Boulevard 200 feet along the south side of Bridle Trail
Landscaping along the west side of Bandera Boulevard and the center median from SH 78 north to Siena Drive
