On Saturday, May 7, you have the chance to vote on two initiatives that address issues facing Fort Worth.


2022 Bond Election

The $560 million bond package includes propositions funding capital projects in Fort Worth neighborhoods and business districts. The size of the bond package was designed to work within the existing property tax rate. If approved, it’s expected the bonds will be fully repaid without increasing your property tax rate.

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