O'Fallon Progress

Letter to the editor: Pass the Destination O’Fallon plan

Dear Editor,

As a resident and voter in O’Fallon, I want to encourage our City Council to pass the Destination O’Fallon plan and funding through the Hotel/Motel Tax.

This plan addresses many areas in our city and allows for needed improvements to be made to our downtown and our Family Sports Park without increasing property taxes.

It keeps O’Fallon the No. 1 place to live, work and play in the area. It will give our downtown a boost, which will help keep current businesses in downtown and attract new ones. It will also set our Sports Park above all the other sports facilities in the area, which means more tournaments and more out of town dollars being spent with our local businesses.

The City Council should pass this plan so that we can keep moving forward in our city.

Gary R. Hoelscher
