The Richardson City Council has called for four bond propositions to be placed on the November 3, 2015 Election Day ballot. No tax rate increase would be associated with any of the bond propositions being proposed.

Proposition 1 – Public Buildings
This $67 million proposition includes funding for renovations to several municipal buildings including the Richardson Animal Shelter, Fire Station #3 replacement, Library, and addition of a parking lot for the City’s Fire Training Center. The largest project within this proposition includes funding to expand and renovate the Richardson Public Safety Complex located at Belt Line Road and Greenville Avenue.

Funding would also include rehabilitation projects for 1.7 miles of local streets, 3.8 miles of alley reconstruction, new traffic signals and battery backup units, the addition of turning lanes at several highly traveled intersections, and a flood prevention project impacting West Belt Line Road and Cottonwood Drive.
