Invest in Dallas’ future in May 4 bond election

By Catie George, Manager, Communications & Storytelling

In the upcoming City of Dallas bond election, voters can approve a $1.25 billion investment across 10 areas of need to improve Dallas now and into the future. The Dallas Regional Chamber joins Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson and trusted community partners in calling on voters to vote “yes” on all 10 propositions, A-J, of the bond package.

Together, Propositions A-J will help maintain and improve the city’s infrastructure to support a high-quality life for all people—with no new costs for taxpayers. City of Dallas officials have pledged to use tax dollars it already collects annually, without raising the tax rate for residents.

Each of the 10 propositions on the ballot marks a unique, multi-million-dollar investment in an area of need, with more than three-quarters of the proposed funds allocated to roads, parks, and public safety. Read a description of each of the 10 propositions here, and view a detailed map and listing of proposed projects here.

Notably, Proposition F provides $50 million in funding for the new Regional Law Enforcement Training Center, for which the DRC has been a strong advocate.
