Even though election day is just over a week away, some Spokane residents have already cast their vote on whether or not to give Riverfront Park a $60 million facelift.
"It needs some updates,? Lori Sherfey, a frequent park goer said. ?I mean everyone likes to go places that are new and fresh it keeps things fun and exciting."
Proposition 2 would not require new taxes. However, it would extend the current streets and parks tax, 91 cents per 1000 dollars on assessed property value by twenty years. The City of Spokane has come up with a strategic refinancing plan, making it so it can be paid off without a tax increase.
?We've very enthusiastic about voting for anything that improves the park and roads or anything like that," James Schoepflin, Spokane resident said.
As of now there is no organized opposition to the bond. Some people that KXLY4 spoke with on Monday said that City's time and energy should be put somewhere else, while others feel the park is fine how it is.
?Anytime that there's something that might cost a little more money people discuss it of course," Schoepflin said.
