Lee's Summit Voters Approve $7.5 Million No-Tax Increase Bond Initiative Cultural Arts Facilities & Road Improvements

April 6, 2013

Lee’s Summit’s history of overwhelming support for ballot issues continued on Tuesday, April 2, with the approval of a more than $7 million no-tax increase bond election for cultural arts facilities enhancements and road improvements. Lee’s Summit has not had a failed City-initiated ballot question since 1995.

"The approval of the bonds by our voters allows the City to address some of our unfunded needs while embarking on a new cultural arts initiative," said Lee’s Summit Mayor Randy Rhoads.

Lee’s Summit City Manager Stephen Arbo added, "The approval of the 2013 no-tax increase bond initiative is an indication of the level of community-wide support for creating an atmosphere for cultural arts to thrive in Lee’s Summit and of the continued commitment by our residents to preserving and maintaining our neighborhoods."

A four-sevenths voter majority was needed for each ballot question. The unofficial election results from the Jackson County Election Board for Lee’s Summit’s 41 precincts are as follows:

    Question 1: $2.89 M for the creation of a Downtown Cultural Arts Campus and the enhancement of the Amphitheater at Legacy Park received 4,048 ‘yes’ votes or 69.71% of the total vote. The total number of votes received for question one was 5,807.
    Question 2: $4.6 M for road improvements to Orchard Street and Pryor Road received 4,451 ‘yes’ votes or 76.75% of the total vote. The total number of votes received for question two was 5,799.
