Ayres, who said he believed it was unnecessary to put the questions on the ballot, closed the survey Monday afternoon after receiving more than 400 responses the three questions.
More than 55 percent of respondents said they are against term limits for park district commissioners. Voters also overwhelmingly said "no" when asked whether Plainfield Park District dog parks should require permits, and were not in favor of having commissioners look into building a community center.
Here are the final results, excluding 38 responses with duplicate IP addresses, Ayres said:
- Should the Plainfield Park District issue permits for users of the districts' dog parks? Yes: 17.62 percent No: 82.38 percent

Here are the advisory questions as they will appear on the March 18 ballot:

- Should the Plainfield Township Park District investigate the purchase or construction of an indoor recreational facility?
