Ever wonder what happens to the results of poll questions on this blog? Some of you might wonder if the results are of any importance to anyone. You bet they are. That's why we encourage as many of you as possible to share your opinions when polls are conducted on this blog. In the case of the arches, the results of the poll will be submitted to the DPOA Joint Operations Committee (responsible for security and maintenance issues in the downtown and meets at 4:30 P.M. every First Thursday of the month) and the Marketing Committee, which meets at 5:30 P.M. every first Thursday of the month. The committees will discuss, come to a consensus, and direct the DPOA staff to "make it happen". The DPOA staff, which is the Executive Director, Executive Assistant, Maintenance worker, and consultants, don't work in a vacuum. They are given direction by the DPOA Board of Directors directly, and via various committees established by the board. Just so you know.
The results of the arches poll:
"What color would you like to see the arches painted ?"
Golden Gate Red 37%
Leave it as it is 17%
- Art Deco Turquoise
- Strip it down to bare metal and clear coat it
- Terracotta, rust, paprika, or cardamon..can we do the letters a different color?
- Any color but make the letters a contrasting color.
When a decision is made and direction given to the staff, we'll let you all know. In the meantime, respond to the polls and surveys. We are listening.
