Content
Calendar Event Date: 
Fri. April 14th, 2017 -
12:00pm to 01:00pm

City Hall
107 North Nevada Avenue
Colorado Springs, CO 80903

On Thursday, April 6 and Friday, April 14, 2017, City Council staff and the LART Citizens Advisory Committee will host a Lodgers and Automobile Rental Tax (LART) Workshop for event organizers intending to apply for funding for 2018 events.

In addition to its general City sales tax, the City levies a 2% tax on lodging and a 1% sales tax on auto rentals. The funds that are generated from this tax are placed in a special revenue fund that must be spent for tourism or economic development purposes — events, projects, and services that attract visitors or enhance the economy of the City and the Pikes Peak Region.

The workshops will cover application processes, deadlines, and specific guidelines for filling out the application.

Workshops:

  • Thu., April 6, from 5 - 6 p.m., City Hall, 107 North Nevada Avenue, 2nd floor Pikes Peak Room
  • Fri., April 14, from noon - 1 p.m., City Hall, 107 North Nevada Avenue, 2nd floor Pikes Peak Room
