Capital Projects Update
The 2017-2022 Bond Program was approved by voters in May 2017. Projects include streets and drainage, parks, fire stations, library renovations, senior centers and others. To review the projects, please visit the 2017 Bond Page
In May of 2012, the voters approved $87.15 million for Parks, Recreation and Open Space Improvements 68 projects. The previous bond project in 2007 included Recreation, Open Space and Athletics Improvements for a total of $79,125,293 for 69 projects. In November of 2003 San Antonio voters approved a bond issue which set aside $27.2 million, at 54 individual project sites. These projects continue the program set aside by the 1999 bond issue; however, the large focus of this bond issue was rehabilitation of existing parks and the development of facilities for youth sports activities. All of the bond propositions have been spread over a four year period so that a tax increase will not be required.
Projects may also be funded from other sources such as Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) from the federal government, Certificates of Obligation, and grants from the U.S. Department of the Interior and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Projects may also be funded from donations by private sources such as the San Antonio Parks Foundation, Associated General Contractors and the Junior League of San Antonio.
