Key findings from a telephone survey of registered voters will be presented to the Vail Town Council Tuesday, July 19 by a polling firm hired by the town to research ballot concepts for reallocation of the Conference Center Fund.

The overview will be presented by Lori Weigel, partner with the Colorado office of Public Opinion Strategies. The item is listed sixth on the meeting agenda which begins at 6 p.m. in the Vail Town Council Chambers, 75 S. Frontage Rd.

The telephone survey was conducted from June 26 through July 12. The survey probed the level of support for three concepts currently contemplated by the Town Council for reallocation of the $9.4 million Conference Center Fund.

The concepts are: renovation of the clubhouse at the Vail golf course and Nordic center including a new pavilion; expansion and restroom renovation of the Ford Park sports complex; and improvements at the Ford Amphitheater to include expansion of outdoor seating and restroom improvements.

According to Weigel, the survey found that a solid majority of Vail voters are supportive of using the already collected tax dollars for the three improvements. Specifically, 67 percent indicated they would vote “yes” in support of a ballot measure, while 27 percent said they would vote “no.” The margin of error is plus-or-minus eight percent.

If the Town Council decides to pursue a ballot question for the Nov. 8 election, the deadline for passage of a resolution to authorize the ballot measure is Aug. 16. The survey findings are available in their entirety on the town's website.
