Pima County residents asked to help identify critical projects for future bond election, deadline Aug. 2by Visit Tucson on Jul. 23, 2013, under Uncategorized
Pima County’s bond program, with voters’ support, has enriched our community and our lives by expanding libraries, constructing new behavioral health facilities, securing swaths of open space and building new parks.
At the same time, the capital improvement program has sustained 14,500 jobs locally, while stimulating the local economy with critical capital. Because continued needs warrant consideration of another bond issue, Pima County would like your assistance in identifying the investments that are of the greatest importance throughout the region.
After consulting local jurisdictions and community organizations, more requests came in than we can fund in a future bond election. Narrowing down the list for a potential future election will be extremely difficult. The County has developed an online survey, available through Friday, Aug. 2, that will allow us to gather more information as we begin the process of winnowing down the community’s requests.
The survey lists every proposal submitted to date to the Pima County Bond Advisory Committee, divided into five primary areas:
- Historic, cultural and natural area conservation
- Public health, flood control, neighborhood reinvestment and governmental facilities
- Libraries, community facilities and museums
- Job growth, education and workforce training
- Parks and recreation
The survey asks you to provide feedback on the projects you feel are most needed. The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete, depending on how you answer the questions. The survey may only be taken once.
The community’s feedback is critical and very much appreciated. Click here to access the survey: www.pima.gov/bondsurvey
