Information about this year’s parks bond referendum is now available on the Fairfax County Web site at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/bond. This online resource offers specific information about projects expected to be funded, general information about bonds and a form to request a presentation about the referendum.
On Nov. 4, Fairfax County voters will be asked to vote “yes” or “no” on a parks bond referendum on the general election ballot. The referendum asks voters to allow the county to borrow up to $77 million to acquire new parks, improve existing parks and renovate park facilities.
Of the $77 million, the Fairfax County Park Authority would receive $65 million. The remaining $12 million would be used to pay the county’s share of capital costs for the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority, which was created by six local governments including Fairfax County.
