Create a dedicated funding source for projects that will enhance quality of life for Jonesboro's citizens.

Our group has decided to write, present and campaign for a 1% sales tax increase — the proceeds of which will be evenly distributed between police/fire and the construction of quality of life infrastructure in Jonesboro.

We define quality of life infrastructure as capital improvements within the following categories:

  • Arts

  • Aquatics

  • Beautification

  • Libraries

  • Museums

  • Park Facilities

  • Recreational Facilities

  • Sidewalks

  • Trail Systems

Due to the city's long-term history of ignoring infrastructure of this nature, the the city's need greatly outweigh the funds that will be raised from this tax. We have therefore set up a committee that will make recommendations to the city council regarding project funding.

The committee will make recommendations that we fund projects that give the most "bang for the buck." The recommendations will be made through a transparent and fair system. The committee will also serve as a watchdog to ensure tax payer money is spent wisely and only on the items outlined in the ordinance.
