Missouri City voters in November will have the chance to decide whether or not to approve three bond propositions totaling about $85.85 million for mobility, facility and parks and recreation projects across the city.
The council last week approved placing the three items on the November ballot in a 5-1 vote.
The decision came after months of consideration among both council and an exploratory committee, who pared down the list of projects before bringing a proposal before council.
The ballot items will be the first for the city since 2014.
If all three items were approved, the average homeowner might see $121 per year more in taxes in Fort Bend County and $76 per year in Harris County, according to documents. The maximum interest and sinking tax rate the city would need to fund the projects is 17.57 cents per $100 of valuation, according to the city.
Proposition A would include $51.6 million for streets, bridges and sidewalk improvements, according to the city. Proposition B would include $11.2 million for public facilities and Proposition C would include $23 million for parks and recreation projects, according to the city.
Residents have expressed support for some items being considered for the bond referendum. About 49 percent of respondents in a 2020 citizen survey, for instance, said they considered the overall maintenance of streets and infrastructure the biggest priority for the city moving forward, according to information provided by the city.
