What do you think about the possibility of a theme park coming to Williams?

Please select one:
I love the idea. The city needs more economic development and recreation opportunities.
It's a good idea, but the developers would need to come up with a source of water.
I don't like the idea. The city can't support the amount of visitors a major attraction would bring.
It's a bad idea. It would be an eyesore and we live in Williams because of its small-town charm.
