Pima County will start a series of open houses this week to discuss proposed bond projects that could go to voters in May 2008.
County officials say they want public comments as they narrow a wish list of $3 billion in projects to $1 billion or less. About 30 percent is expected to go to wastewater projects.
County officials will also explain projects on the list at the open houses.
The most expensive proposal calls for a new Superior Court building at a cost of $530 million, almost as much as all the park projects under consideration.
The county Board of Supervisors will consider public comments, as well as recommendations from its bond committee, before finalizing a list of projects for voter approval.
Unless noted otherwise, all open houses will run from 6 to 8 p.m.:
● Thursday, Drexel Heights Community Center, 5220 S. San Joaquin Road
● Monday, 2 to 4 p.m., 2980 S. Camino Del Sol, Green Valley
