The $560 million bond package includes propositions funding capital projects in Fort Worth neighborhoods and business districts. If the bond propositions pass, it will have no direct impact on the tax rate and the city’s tax rate should not need to increase in order to repay the bonds.

The bond program is broken down into five propositions. Voters can vote separately for or against each proposition on the ballot.

Proposition A: $360,218,300 for streets and mobility-related projects.

Proposition B: $123,955,500 for park and recreation projects, including a new aquatics center in the Stop Six neighborhood and a rebuilt Forest Park Pool.

Proposition C: $12,505,200 for a new library in far northwest Fort Worth.

Proposition D: $39,321,000 for police and fire public safety facilities. Included is a proposed headquarters for the Northwest Patrol Division.

Proposition E: $15,000,000 for the city’s Open Space program, which focuses on acquiring natural areas.
