Nearly 70% of the 46,549 registered voters in North Richland Hills cast ballots in the election. Thank you to all NRH voters who made your voices heard in the bond election. The bond program will allow the city to reconstruct 27 streets including Glenview, Iron Horse, Bedford-Euless, Chapman, Lariat and others, and will not require an increase in the city’s property tax rate. Thank you also to the 35 residents who served on the 2020 Capital Program Advisory Committee and provided valuable input in developing the bond proposition that was presented to the voters.
This morning, city staff began planning to carry out these much needed improvements with projects to be phased in over the next 5 to 7 years. Our commitment to voters is to deliver high quality improvements in a timely manner and within budget. We will be creating a webpage to keep the public informed of the timeline and progress for each of the 27 street improvement projects. In the meantime, you can find a map of all of the projects included in the bond program at www.nrhtx.com/2020bond.
