   VOTE YES ON ISSUE 1 

The Pikes Peak Pickleball Association (PPPA) has partnered with the Trails and Open Space Coalition in the past. We value our partnership with them and know that the causes they support do a lot for our city and community. We whole heartedly stand with them in their support of “VOTE YES ON ISSUE 1”. Not only does this initiative gives us the ability to request accountability but it also provides us with the transparency we should all demand from our local government when it asks for our vote. Please “VOTE YES ON ISSUE 1”! Election Day is Tuesday April 6th. Learn more here.
