Vote yes on April 2
I think we can all agree that Lee’s Summit is a beautiful city. There is so much to be proud of, and yet there is always room for improvement. A great image is easy to destroy and difficult to rebuild. A city must be proactive to keep its polished reputation.
The April 2 “No Tax Increase” Bond Issue is meant to do just that. We, as a community, have the opportunity to continue to move Lee’s Summit forward by voting “Yes” on Questions 1 and 2.
Question One will ask voters if they want the City to go ahead with the $2.9 million bond to improve the Legacy Park Amphitheater, rehabilitate the old downtown post office/city hall building, and create a downtown outdoor performance and festival space.
Question Two will ask voters if the City should issue bonds for $3 million for constructing road improvements and sidewalks on Orchard Street, including rehabilitating existing road improvements, constructing sidewalks, curbs, and enclosed storm drainage facilities, as well as $1.6 million in improvements (road shoulders) to Pryor Road.
During the February Board Meeting, the Chamber Board of Directors unanimously voted to support the “No Tax Increase” Bond Issue ballot initiative because we recognize the importance of maintaining and improving the Lee’s Summit infrastructure and cultural arts.
These improvements to our city will help foster economy, ensure safety, and provide economic wealth and improved quality of life for Lee’s Summit citizens.
Therefore, we ask that you join us and vote to support the April 2 “No Tax Increase” Bond Issue initiative to help build a better city
