City Council has authorized placing a ballot issue for an advisory vote on the May 7 primary election. Like the advisory election held for First & Main, this issue asks voters if the City should continue with development of Downtown Phase II.
The question on the ballot will be whether to continue with Downtown Phase II as a public and private development, subject to final approval by the Architectural and Historic Board of Review and City Council. A "yes" vote would be in support of continuing the Downtown Phase II process. A "no" vote would be against continuing with Downtown Phase II.
The advisory vote, although not binding, will provide City Council with the opinion of the people regarding continuing this project. If the issue fails, Council most likely would not proceed with the project. Learn more about the May 7 Ballot Issue and Downtown Phase II.
