On Nov 7, Golden Valley voters will consider whether to approve a 1.25 percent local sales tax to finance Building Forward, an investment plan to replace the aging and outdated buildings that house the City's Public Works and Police and Fire operations.
The City's Building Forward website provides information about the local sales tax referendum, including the challenges with the current buildings, the proposed investment plan, the community engagement process, the cost of the project, and other details. The website's FAQ section is updated weekly with answers to questions posed on the website feedback form and social media.
The City put forward the investment plan because the buildings housing the Public Works and Police and Fire Departments can no longer adequately support modern service delivery and emergency response. Learn more at buildingforwardgv.org.
