What does the $69 million cost of the bond cover? How much debt does Provo City already have? When do those debts get paid off? How much space is needed for the new facilities? How did you determine how much space you need? Why can't Provo City just save up money for new buildings? Why are you talking about this bond instead of the need for a new wastewater treatment plant? How much is this bond going to cost me as a Provo resident? This seems rushed. Can't you wait until next year to put this on the ballot? The bond language says this will be built "downtown." Can't you be more specific about the location? Why are you doing this NOW? What would happen if the bond does not pass? What would be the next steps to getting the needed facilities? Why was the decision made to retain city hall in downtown when this could be prime for economic development? Why was East Bay not considered? What are the rules or laws for what you (Provo City) and your employees can do or say to promote this bond? My concern is whether it is the BEST idea for Provo. If these buildings will truly enhance the image of their surrounding area (wherever that may be) maybe they would be better served revitalizing the East Bay Area. I’m not saying the mall option, but somewhere in East Bay in general. The opened space on center street would then be able to be used for commercial purposes to further enhance the already growing economic impact downtown is having on Provo. I understand that many studies were made about potential other locations, but I’m not clear on whether other locations in East Bay were considered BESIDES the mall. What is the usual process for large city projects like this? Is there usually more than a concept a plan before the bond is passed? What was it like for the Recreation Center?
