After two months, an important portion of the 2012-2017 Proposed Bond Program’s public input process has been concluded, with the completion of 20 public meetings consisting of 16 Community Bond Meetings and four Community Bond Tours. During the public process, over 800 residents were in attendance at the meetings, and 165 resident comments were made. Overall, the Committee Members found the public process to be well organized, successful and transparent.
Overall, the Community Bond Committee Members recommended 135 projects for the proposed $596 Million 2012-2017 Bond Program. A detailed list of the recommended projects can be found at http://www.sanantonio.gov/2012Bond/.
The next steps in the development of the proposed Bond Program will be the presentation and discussion of the Community Bond Committee Recommendations on January 11, 2012 within a City Council “B” Session. Following this presentation, the City Council will consider the recommendations made by the committees. Upon approval of the projects, City Council will call a special election for the proposed bond program for Saturday, May 12, 2012.
