The "election will produce the long-awaited confrontation between Smart Growth and its smog-fueled evil twin, Dumb Growth... If approved by voters in the seven-county Denver metro area, FasTracks would construct six new rail lines and a host of other transit improvements over a 12-year period, creating a mass-transit web radiating in every direction from Denver's Union Station. The plan requires voters to approve a hike in RTD's sales tax from the current 0.6 percent to 1 percent. The increase would translate into an additional 4 cents on each $10 purchase."
