To address Fort Worth’s unprecedented growth and the challenges that come along with it, the City Council will call for a bond election in May 2018. If approved by voters, the bond package would provide funding to build new roads and repair existing ones; add new park amenities, community centers and public safety facility improvements; and replace an aging library.
A new video provides an introduction to the bond process and mentions some of the priorities for the proposed bond election.
