Previous Training Session:


The purpose of the MACH Board is to make recommendations to City Council on how to implement the MACH initiative, which increased the City's Use Tax Rate and Sales Tax Rate by 3/10ths of 1%. 66% of these funds will be allocated to a special fund for facility improvements and operations at the Carnegie Building, Manitou Art Center, Manitou Springs Heritage Center, Miramont Castle, and Hiawatha Gardens. The remaining 34% of the proceeds will be distributed by the City Council through awards and grants to foster the arts, culture, and heritage within Manitou Springs.

Regular Meetings

The Board will have regular meetings on the fourth Thursday of the month, but may schedule additional meetings in advance. All agendas will be posted in City Hall and on our website no less than 24 hours in advance.

Meetings are open to the public. Please email the ADA Coordinator or call  719-685-2554 if you need special assistance attending a meeting.
