.The SBJ survey leans to businesses and I would argue the City survey leans towards young, downtown frequenters that were driven to the survey by social media. Neither one of these surveys is representative of the whole population. I'm sure the City can't spend money on a true, randomized survey with any kind of confidence level. I would suggest that the community be allowed to vote on the various designs at many locations, including new submissions, over a six to 12-month period to give everyone a chance to have their voice heard. The SIP option comes from a small group of individuals from the community with no input from clergy, military, law enforcement, education, community non-profits, city leadership, large businesses, and the general public. The Springfield Business Journal has published many articles on their and other communities efforts in the last few years and the cities who were successful in developing and adopting a new city flag followed a much different path of community inclusion.
