Benefits will flow to other cities, too

Can you imagine how much more opportunity the Salida Now initiative will bring to not only Salida but to the nearby cities? Businesses have passed on building in some parts of the county due to a lack in space. This initiative will bring so much more in tax revenues from those businesses that set up shop in Salida and it will, in turn, benefit all citizens. This means more funding for parks, concerts, and the general beautification of our outstanding county. The results and opportunities are incalculable.

Imagine a place where the grass at the parks is always cut and green, the public pools are always open and the libraries are full with the newest books. Not to mention that part of this revenue will go toward fixing our local roads. The overall well-being of the citizens will improve.
