Proposition 1 to People’s Freeway Community Council
Thursday, Oct. 1
Hear the city’s sales pitch for a $125 million bond for a new public safety civic campus across the street from Library Square. The meetings will be all over the city in coming weeks as bond supporter´s talk about the decrepit status of the current public safety building and how the time is right to invest in a new facility. The city expects the tax impact will only be about $75 a year per residential property.
