Montgomery County Road Bonds On The Ballot

Montgomery County Road Bonds On The Ballot

Image titleUPDATE:  Great read in Community Impact News on the Bond Issue -  http://impactnews.com/houston-metro/tomball-magnolia/montgomery-county-to-vote-on-%24350-million-road-bond/


Interesting speakers and subject matter at the Conroe Noon Lions meeting last Wednesday as they were discussing one of the upcoming items on the ballet on the May 9, 2015 election  - road bonds.

In an unanimous vote the Montgomery County Commissioners Court has approved a list of 77 projects that will be set for the May 9th $350 million bond referendum.  Projects which includes the controversial extension of the Woodlands Parkway from FM 2978 to Texas 249. 

The final project list was cut to 77 projects to keep the bond issue to $350,000 so that there would not be a tax hike in conjunction with this bond election.

There appears to be some opposition growing on this issue as it relates to only one of the 77 projects, the Woodlands Parkway extension.

I was shocked to learn that in the last Bond issue relating to Montgomery County roads in 2011; 14,000 people turned out to vote in 2011 - and the issue was defeated.  Makes one think - I can honestly say I didn't vote on that day and I wish that I had looking back.

For a list of all the Projects proposed on the Bond issue you can go to www.keepmontgomerycountymoving.com , that is where you will be able to find a list of all the proposed projects by Precincts.

The most important thing is to be informed and to VOTE.  

The deadline to register to vote in the May 9, 2015 election is April 9, 2015.

You can always early vote and this is a big one for the growth of Montgomery County.  So please, visit the web site, read all you can about the issue, make up your own mind and then vote.  Montgomery County is waiting to hear from you - from everyone on this issue.
