Fort Bend County Mobility & Parks Election 2023: What You Need to Know

September 25 2023

In the November 7, 2023, General Election, Fort Bend County voters will consider a bond proposal on various county-wide Mobility and Parks Projects.

What are Bond elections?

Bond elections allow voters to decide whether or not to use long-term financing through the sale of bonds for major capital improvement projects such as new construction and expansion of roads, parks and trails. This election is being held in conjunction with the November General Election for Federal, State, and County offices and the Fort Bend County Mobility and Parks bond proposal. The total amount of the Mobility Bond is $712,630,000, and $153,000,000 for the Parks Bond.

Will the Use of Bonds Increase the Tax Rate?

NO. The Commissioners Court included a commitment in the Mobility and Parks Bond Order not to increase the tax rate for issuing the Parks Bonds once issued.

How will the Mobility and Park Bonds be used?

The funding from both the Mobility and Park Bonds will be used to revitalize parks with new amenities like playgrounds, trails, and athletic spaces and enhance lighting, shade, restrooms, and ADA accessibility. Additionally, Mobility Bonds will improve transportation infrastructure through road expansions, pedestrian facilities, and traffic management, accommodating the county's growth and mobility needs.

Why is the County Requesting the Issuance of Mobility and Park Bonds?

Fort Bend County is pursuing park and mobility bonds to cater to its evolving community needs. Parks Bonds would secure funds for maintenance, new amenities, and enhanced aesthetics. Concurrently, mobility bonds are crucial for addressing transportation demands brought about by the county's population growth. These bonds would finance projects like road expansions, pedestrian facilities, and traffic management to improve traffic flow and ensure safe travel. The issuance of both bonds reflects the county's dedication to enhancing recreation and transportation for its residents.
