Excerpts from the Q&A


Public: It says the way land and buildings are developed. 

Is that government land buildings or is that privately held land and buildings? 

City of Davenport: That would be both. 


City of Davenport: In a sense if this were adopted as part of a comprehensive plan, then it gives it a little more impetus, I guess would be one way to say it, to say, Okay, here's another thing that says you should be doing this.  And it's for the betterment for basically the health and safety of the people that live in Davenport, or in this case Scott County. 


Scott County: By the very nature [these plans] sometimes have competing or contradictory aspects to them.  And that's up to the political process to make a determination.

Constitution Week
As we work through this week, let us remember that this week is Constitution week as so declared by all the governments across America by law. And in that spirit, Michael D. Elliott, the chairman of Iowans for Accountability and SuperLiberty has his own Liberty Pamphlet to share with everyone. “It is my hope that people will take a moment this week to reflect on what principles made this nation great in the past, and I offer my own explanation of those principles with this Liberty Pamphlet.”
