Shall citizen-initiated Ordinance No. 142, 1999, which requires the City of Fort Collins to work with other affected government agencies to pursue the relocation of the Colorado Highway 14 Truck Route to a location outside the City's Growth Management Area boundaries and which also requires the City to use all funds remaining from the "Building Community Choices" Capital Improvement Program for such relocation efforts, be repealed in its entirety, so that said ordinance would be of no further force and effect and the remaining funds referenced in the ordinance, in the approximate amount of $1.8 million, would instead be used either to further pursue the relocation of the Colorado Highway 14 Truck Route or to fund transportation capital improvement projects in the northeast quadrant of the City or for both such purposes?
