The Tampa Bay times published on October 5th: “The November referendum allows modest improvements to expand and enhance green space along the waterfront. It enables the Imagine Clearwater plan to keep moving forward, and it is essential to the revitalization of the entire downtown. On the Clearwater referendum question on improvements to the downtown waterfront, the Tampa Bay Times recommends voting Yes.”
A Yes vote is also endorsed by the Downtown Neighborhood Association, the Clearwater Neighborhoods Coalition, Downtown Partnership, Downtown Merchants Association, Regional Chamber of Commerce, and the Imagine Clearwater Stakeholder Committee, just to name a few.
If you are unfamiliar with the details and background of the referendum, the City published an overview, including what a yes vote will permit and what a no vote will prevent. Vote- by-mail ballots are still available through November 1 if you prefer to vote from the comfort of home!
