You can read in today’s tomorrow’s paper about the proposed arts and cultural district for downtown. Council members will hold a public hearing tomorrow night on this idea. In the meantime, read the proposed ordinance and see a map of the proposed boundaries here.
Last week’s post about Fredericksburg’s proposal to spend money asking city residents what they think about city services started a little debate about surveys. I saw some of the same feedback several years ago in Lynchburg, when that city chose to use this same survey company to poll residents. Then, as now, I got messages from folks suggesting that the city taxpayers already financed a city-wide survey, also known as an election. In Fredericksburg, though, the last one of those got a pretty sorry response rate.
