Urbandale Mayor Robert Andeweg released the following statements on the conclusion of Urbandale’s Bond Referendum vote on Tuesday night, March 7:
"The decision to bring the U-Plex project to a vote was a deliberate one, made by the City Council because we believed it was crucial to hear from our residents on this matter. I commend everyone who took the time to cast their ballot and participate in this important decision-making process.”
“Despite a great turnout, the required 60% approval threshold was not reached. I am grateful to the voters of our community for making their voices heard on this important issue. Regardless of the outcome, I deeply respect their decision and the democratic process that we all hold dear."
“The City is committed to continuing to work towards providing recreational opportunities for its residents and will explore other options moving forward.”
