The city of San Leandro just this week released the results from a survey conducted to gauge how many voters would potentially support a bond measure to pay for dredging and maintaining the San Leandro Marina yacht harbor.
The results were not surprising: San Leandro residents would not support a bond measure for the marina, the survey concluded.
What was surprising (or not, depending on how you look at it) about the survey were residents’ responses to what they felt were the city’s true priorities.
Ironically, the potential closure of the harbor was of the least importance.
It seems the survey didn’t provide the city with any solutions for saving the 45-year-old boat harbor. Meanwhile, officials have been working on other plans to develop the shoreline recreation area, if the city decides it can no longer dredge.
Now that the survey is done, what else do you think the city should be doing?
