Proposition #1 Survey Results
As you know, a proposition needed to help fund a new Civic Center facility failed in August. To help us better understand the “why” behind your vote, whether you supported or opposed it, we asked residents to take a brief survey on this issue. The response rate has been fantastic, and the information submitted to date will be presented to the City Council at their January 28th retreat for review. If you are interested in taking a peak at the results we have received so far, take a look at the retreat packet.
After the survey closes, we will post an official summary for public review. Here are some of the survey highlights:
- We have received 482 responses.
- The primary source of information on Proposition #1 for residents was the Voter Pamphlet, with the City Scene magazine being a close second.
- Most of the respondents indicated they voted no on Proposition #1.
- Those who voted yes stated they supported the proposed Civic Center for a community gathering spot because the current building is deteriorating.
- Those who voted no stated they opposed the proposed Civic Center because it was too expensive and they didn’t trust the plan.
Thank you to all the residents that took the time to respond. Your participation will help us determine and communicate a plan moving forward. Stay tuned for the final report.
