After more than 15 districtwide meetings have been held to discuss the proposed 2018 bond, two citywide meetings are scheduled in the coming weeks.

Over the past few months, public meetings were held in each of the eight council districts to allow residents to learn about the proposed bond projects and provide feedback. Now, two citywide meetings are planned:

  • Oct. 18, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Heritage Church of Christ, 4201 Heritage Trace Parkway.
  • Oct. 23, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Fort Worth Botanic Garden Lecture Hall, 3220 Botanic Garden Blvd.

City staff is recommending that the City Council 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, new park amenities and community centers, and public safety facility improvements.

Once all of the community meetings are completed, city staff will revise the proposed project list based on public input and will present the list to the City Council.

Learn more about the proposed projects.
