Mayor Coleman Calls Zoo Levy Important To Downtown Columbus
Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman says the Zoo levy voters will decide next week is a key to ongoing change in Columbus that will enable more Columbus children to learn about animals.
Coleman says a proposed new downtown facility is important to giving access to city residents. He spoke on All Sides with Ann Fisher this morning and says that a lack of transportation for children and their families has been a problem.
“I think folks in the central city ought to have as much chance to go the zoo as anyone else does. And it’s a transportation and access issue. And I love the zoo. They can’t help being out there.”
Coleman says voters should not be swayed by outsiders like Americans for Prosperity that is behind an ad against the zoo levy. It would raise taxes on property owners to $44 on every $100,000 of value. That’s more than double the current amount.
