When the Heer’s Tower closed down in the 1960's, the downtown area of Springfield, MO. lost a major economic and entertaining element. Since then, Springfield has been planning and working to get back a lot of the status that it once had. The city government had to bring attractions and business in the form of new business’s to spur development to accommodate the 151,580 citizens that reside in the small city. Mayor Tom Carlson and City Manager Tom Finnie have been heading the projects with the help of large developing firms such as the UDA or Urban District Alliance, and hope that projects such as the redevelopment of Heer’s Tower, SMSU’s Innovation center, and College Station will add not only attractions for the mass of people flooding into Springfield each year, but also bring in hundreds of new jobs to boost the economy and help support a growing society. Over the next couple of pages an analysis of the current and future projects, as well as the non-quantitative benefits and effects on the surrounding community will be looked at to further explain why the project is on the community’s agenda.
Although we tried our best to accurately sample a diverse population, it cannot be described as a completely random sample survey. There could be areas of inaccuracy that cannot be accounted for in the survey as well. Based on possible bias from the conductors of the interview, and the questionnaire that was made up by one of the students conducting this proposal.

In this paper, the issues of Transportation and Infrastructure, the Environment, and Gun Rights will be discussed. I will give my opinion and the candidates for Governor of Virginia stance on these issues. The three issues are important to discuss because we need better roads and infrastructure. A better environment, such cleaner air and no harm to wildlife. We also need guns to defend ourselves when necessary.
Two proposed group homes on community board 10 have prompted concerns from neighbors. Two separate entities "Services for the Undeserved" and "Daybreak Independent Services, Inc." held two separate public hearings regarding their intention to operate a community residence for six individuals with intellectual disabilities. Representatives of each organization conducted a general presentation and answers to questions. General board members of community board 10 and constituents were allowed to have brief timed questions and answer session with each organization.
April-May: After receiving the completed surveys, we will collect data and limit the respondents to the first acceptable 1,500 respondents. We will also send them the promised gift cards for their participation. The research team will analyze the data.
The working document available to the public does not differentiate proposed changes from existing bylaws, and does not include relevant sections of acts or bylaws for reference, so does not give the public sufficient information to respond to. Also, many residents will not waste their time in these meetings, because they do not believe councilors base decisions on bylaws or public input anyway? Are councilors aware that many residents will not express concerns in public or in writing, for fear of repercussions from county staff? Do councilors believe this meeting to be fair public consultation in these circumstances, and if not, what plans will be made for more effective consultation?
