Downtown Plans Would Decrease Quality of Life PDF Print E-mail
Commentary/Politics - Letters to the Editor
Tuesday, 15 May 2001 18:00
Is the City of Davenport going to have certain significant and substantial increases from the downtown Davenport tourist influx being promoted by certain local interests: more traffic congestion; more unavailable parking spaces; more drug traffic; more sexual prostitution; etc. ? And more taxes to pay the costs of trying to correct and combat these decreases in the Davenport quality of life?

We have not seen or heard these quality-of-life-decreasing consequences forthrightly addressed by the major tourism promoters; DavenportOne; the Quad City Times; the Davenport city-council majority; or certain others.

Is this because even mentioning these possibilities to the citizens of Davenport might cause the latest bigger-and-better downtown-Davenport sales pitch to fail?
