2009 Road Improvement Bond

On March 10, 2009, voters approved $25 million of general obligation bonds to be issued for road design, construction, repair and improvements. 

Initially, the City was planning on using bond funding for Unser Boulevard widening, Paseo del Volcan extension, Northern Boulevard widening, 30th Street paving design, Western Hills Drive reconstruction, Nicklaus Drive reconstruction and pavement preservation on roads throughout the City.   However, due to a bond premium ($500,000), Federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding received for the Paseo del Volcan extension, and project bids coming in lower than original cost estimates, the City has been able to use bond funding for more road-related projects than originally anticipated.  For a detailed list of those projects, please see below:
