Reopen Belle Isle Aquarium?
100% of precincts reporting
Yes 110,615 88.0%

Voters are advised that this is an Advisory Ballot Question and does not guarantee the reopening of the Aquarium.  It did, however, give Voters the opportunity to express their opinions which strongly indicate the need for exploring other sources for the funding and operation of the Belle Isle Aquarium.

What Can YOU do to reopen the Aquarium?

  • Stay involved and informed by visiting our web site and attending future meetings.

  • Use your connections to help find corporate sponsors, specific building related contractor donations and more volunteers and donations. 

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,
committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

Margaret Mead, American anthropologist, 1901-1978
