COLA-LO poll on city issues shows citizens' chief concerns

To all members,

The city issues poll has closed. Citizens provided a clear direction for the council and the candidates on those issues of greatest concern. The results were very definitive and included:

  1. Schools (59%)
  2. Cost of city Services  (43%)
  3. Streetcar (49% - impacted by double voting) 
The results show a clear mandate that the city refocus on costs, fees, and the impact of major projects for the community and re-direct the efforts from expensive studies and non core areas. Tax Increment Financing (TIF)  for development projects is of concern to the community because it reduces funding to schools.  

Please ensure that all members and contacts review the poll results.
