Count the Central Missouri Development Council as a group that would like to see Proposition 1 pass.
The council recently voted to endorse the proposition, which would extend the city of Columbia's parks sales tax. If approved, the one-eighth cent sales tax would continue for the next five years and raise an estimated $12 million for new land acquisitions, improvements and repairs, according to a press release from the council.
Council Executive Director Don Stamper said the council endorsed the tax extension because it believes parks are a very important part of Columbia's economy, as well as a good way to attract visitors to town.
"It enhances our ability to be competitive and maintain our quality of life," he said.
Proposition 1 will be one of several ballot proposals before voters on Tuesday.
