More than 1,800 votes came in as the city considers whether to support a huge water park in Fredericksburg.
Date published: 1/15/2008
Of those votes, here's the breakdown:
40 PERCENT - Yes! It'll boost local tourism and provide much-needed tax revenue to the city. The added jobs are another bonus.
47 PERCENT - No! The incentives the city is offering greatly reduce the tax benefits. Other concerns include traffic, water, low-paying jobs and the spectacle of a flashy waterpark in a historic city.
13 PERCENT - Undecided. I'd hope for the best, but I'm skeptical it'll work out for the city and its residents. I'm torn.
