At first the ECT folks didn’t believe these Revenue Numbers in the Town of Vail.
So the ECT called Eagle County’s ‘Office of the Assessor’ – to confirm them.
Now compare that to….Projected Skier Parking revenue raised at ~$3.8 Million per year!! Yes, that ($3.8Million) is from the Town of Vail’s two parking structures operating from mid-November to mid-April as paid skier parking facilities.
Yes, ~90% of what Vail raises in Annual Property Tax Revenue – is raised by their two parking structures – over a 5 month time period!
Yes, the Town of Vail is offering skiers a 5 month “Gold Parking Pass” for the unbelievably low price of $3,250.00 !! (Click Here) Luckily there are no eligibility requirements for that Parking Pass – with the notable exception of making sure your check – actually clears the bank.
The ECT would like to remind Skiers that the $25.00/day you pay for Skier Parking in Vail – helps keep those Property Taxes in Vail as low as possible for Vail Homeowners.
