  • YES 2,632 (70.66%) Approveda
  • NO 1,093 (29.34%)[1]

The referendum called for residents to vote on whether to accept or reject a proposed highway interchange redesign. The effort was supported by local resident Mary Lee Bowen. According to Bowen and her supporters, the city does not have the funds or the need to construct a "diverging diamond interchange" at the intersection of I-480 and Tiedeman Road. The project is estimated to cost a total of $12 million and is scheduled to open in 2012.

The Brooklyn Highway Interchange Referendum is parallel to the efforts to recall Mayor Kenneth Patton.[2]

Signatures

Bowen and referendum supporters collected a total of 2,037 signatures, more than three times the required number of signatures.[2]
