$ 875,000 for monuments? That's the best we can do with our 1% sales tax dollars?

It's actually $875,000 for four gateways, a city-wide wayfinding sign and for two digital marquee signs outside the conference center and the auditorium. And all these things are needed.

Yeah, about as much needed as a hemorrhoid transplant.

It will be the smartest use of our tax dollars. Would a "hemorrhoid transplant" be a smart procedure for your head?

If "we" can't come up with a better use of our tax dollars than this, "we" should repeal the tax.

I'm all for promoting the city, but why is it the smartest use of our tax dollars? And no, I'm not against it, I would just like you to validate your claim.

All those things will be nice to have, not NEEDED. What we NEED is population growth, jobs, real estate that isn't jacked up as high as Little Rock's, gas that isn't jacked up as well, food that doesn't suck, schools (other than PC) that can actually compete state and nation-wide. But don't worry, I'm sure if you make the town pretty enough, people will just flock right to it....NOT. But I'm being hard on El Dorado. If we didn't have so many n*****s it wouldn't be such a shit hole. Not blacks, n*****s. They have ruined every aspect of this town. But you can't blame them for the ridiculous housing costs... or the gas. Just the ugliness of the town and the poor education. There is nothing this town can do about those things. That's a national welfare problem. And all the white trash around here doesn't help either. Now go ahead and make every excuse you can about how EHS is great at academics and housing is the same as anywhere else... every statistic and comparison in existence says otherwise.

.

The economic development tax is going to raise about $32 million or so, and that money won't do a thing to address the issues you mentioned. No matter how much money you offer a company to move here, we don't control their decision. No amount of money we spend will lower gas prices or real estate rates. But to raise that much money and not spend a million or two on making this a more welcoming place would be ridiculous.

I'm sure you'd like for me to validate my claim. But its not just my decision. One good reason for this proposal is that, if we are to attract out of town guests to events at the municipal auditorium, conference center,new theatre, etc. we need to provide directions to get there! Little Rock, Shreveport, Hot Springs, etc all have them. Just one example.

Making El Dorado look better will help businesses people and jobs come here if we don't have a nice town jobs will relocate somewhere else like Hot Springs Little Rock etc. The reason that the naysayers don't like change in this town they don't want to say they have a better plan I think we need to stop complaining about what people r doing to improve this town in order to grow the whole city of El Dorado not just only downtown and some nice neighborhoods has to be very attractive to visitors and potential businesses and industry being negative about this town is just nonsense

Let me get this straight....you think El Dorado can compete with Little Rock, Shreveport and Hot Springs? We have nothing to offer...what? a swampy tour of the river?? It doesnt matter what you build here or bring here it will not grow and it will steadily decrease in numbers (check the records and argue with them). Its just a refinery doomstown, filled with people who have inhaled the fumes. Real kids raised here grow up and MOVE. I saw a child by himself walking on Thanksgiving that looked very sad and hungry, theres a good reason why spending MY tax dollars on your signs and gates is stupid.......though I know you cant understand it.

You're wrong. You have no merit other than YOUR DUMBASS OPINION. I know you can't understand that, as you apparently have no education or experience in community development. Three census numbers are not an example, numbnuts.

Fyi, I know many people that grew up here and have chosen to make El Dorado their home. Again, YOUR DUMBASS OPINION is wrong.
