The way I see it, Iff'n Lowes gets ten votes, it is in the lead over all others. Just because 200 plus respondents said NO, does not mean that Lowes is not in lead.
One thing often not cited is that the C.C. refuses to Listen to the city residents. Thus since they are deaf, they must in turn go to the "survey" asking what questions they want answered.
If you ask them in a certain way too then not only will it make you look good, but will prove that you were aiming the city in the right direction all along, as per survey. As there wasn't a mention of establishing a Dog Pound on the now vacant property, you think that may have gotten more votes than the front-runner?
Reading all the comments... No Lowes or No More Retail got more votes than Lowes.
I guess all those that opposed Lowes at the Council meeting were not called, or paid attention to. What a load of carp.
It appears to me the Council paid for the results they wanted.
I would surmise that a coming Council meeting they will give each other awards.
