On March 22 a committee consisting of Lloyd Nelson, Brian Mindt, and Gary Schlagel submitted a petition to the city for approval to initiate a city ordinance that would require the Central Avenue Streetscape project be approved by a majority of qualified electors prior to its construction.

On March 29, the proposed petition draft was denied by City Auditor, Avis Richter. Several reasons for this denial were detailed in a letter.
