PROP 1 - SENIOR MILLAGE
NOVEMBER 7, 2023
WHY DO WE NEED A SENIOR MILLAGE? Birmingham has purchased the YMCA building to provide a permanent home for senior services, with NEXT as the service provider and to support operations and planning for growth of our senior community. To fund the first steps to make the building suitable for senior services. To provide dedicated funding for senior services.
WHY DOES NEXT HAVE TO MOVE?: Next membership has increased 150% in the last ten years and the Birmingham senior population is projected to grow to 30% by 2045 - and there is no available room to expand at Midvale where Next currently resides.
WHY SHOULD YOU VOTE YES ON PROP 1: To keep Birmingham a "Senior Friendly" community. To retain a large & growing population vital to Birmingham property values & business economy. Because supporting seniors is what caring communities do!
WHAT WILL THIS COST ME? Approximately $96/year for the average residential taxpayer. The increase will be largely offset by a decrease in debt service millage.
Please help us to make this Birmingham intiative a success by talking to your friends and neighbors.
