    As of 5 p.m., 1,835 votes have been cast. Log in below to discuss the proposal and share YOUR thoughts.

    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.
