Fort Worth residents still have one last chance to offer their opinions and ideas for potential projects on the 2014 bond election.

The final citywide meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2 at the Sanctuary Unity Church, 5051 Trail Lake Drive.

The city’s staff has started to compile a list of potential projects for the 2014 bond election slate and is looking to the community for additional contributions.

During the meeting, residents can offer input in multiple ways, including:

·      Reducing or eliminating proposed projects to make room for other projects.

·      Adding to the proposed project list.

·      Increasing or decreasing individual project details.

·      Giving opinion on using funds for public art.

FWISD trustee Judy Needham said 109 residents typically have the highest voter turnout in bond elections, making the meeting even more beneficial to those who attend.

“Input is critical to this process,” said Mayor Betsy Price before a presentation on the bond process, according to the Fort Worth city website. The Mayor also added that the input they have received so far is not enough for a town of nearly 800,000 people.

These meetings aren’t the only way for residents to provide input. Residents may also submit input and learn more about city projects at YourFortWorth.
