It was a disappointing Saturday night for those dreaming of a revitalized downtown, new facilities, street improvements and an expanded Bosque River Trail.


All five propositions failed miserably even after a strong effort to get the measures passed.


Here’s a breakdown on how each proposition shook out:

PROPOSITION A (COMBINED USE FACILITY):

YES: 800

NO: 868


PROPOSITION B (DOWNTOWN REVITALIZATION):

YES: 613

NO: 1,054


PROPOSITION C (BELKNAP STREET IMPROVEMENTS):

YES: 644

NO: 1,023


PROPOSITION D (STREET IMPROVEMENTS)

YES: 623

NO: 1,037


PROPOSITION E (BOSQUE RIVER TRAIL EXPANSION)

YES: 608

NO: 1,058
