Briefing on the 2017-2022 Neighborhood Improvements Bond Program

2017-2022 Neighborhood Improvements Bond Program
The 2017 Neighborhood Improvements Bond Program provides for the issuance of general obligation bonds to finance the cost of permitted activities as set forth in the Urban Renewal Plan.

Chapter 374 of the Texas Local Government Code, as amended ("Chapter 374"), required the identification of specific geographic areas where Bond funds can be spent; after a public hearing, twelve (12) areas were incorporated into an Urban Renewal Plan approved by City Council on February 2, 2017.

The Neighborhood Improvements Bond Program and this Project is in alignment with SA Tomorrow goals. The twelve eligible improvement areas identified in the City Council adopted Urban Renewal Plan were targeted using the SA Tomorrow goals and priorities.
