“Fort Worth’s future got brighter with the passing of our 2018 bond program,” said Mayor Betsy Price. “Over the next five years, citizens will see these capital projects underway in their neighborhoods. From infrastructure improvements to new community centers, the bond will improve everyday quality of life and public safety throughout all of Fort Worth.”

City Manager Dave Cooke said: “Fort Worth’s growth has created challenges and opportunities for us, and Fort Worth residents have recognized the increasing need for transportation infrastructure, new city service centers close to new, outlying neighborhoods, along with improved parks and community centers to help sustain our health and wellbeing. Now, we execute and implement all of these projects.”

In addition, voters approved $250 million in bonds that will allow the Trinity River Vision’s Panther Island project to proceed.
