About the Bond


Boerne City Council has called for a Quality of Life Bond Election to be held in conjunction with the General Election on November 8, 2022. The $36 million bond program is comprised of two propositions. Prop A ($23 million) addresses Streets and Mobility and Prop B ($13 million) addresses Parks and Open Space. City of Boerne residents will vote on both propositions.

B.O.N.D. Meetings 

There will be two in-person Boerne Open Neighborhood Discussion (B.O.N.D.) Meetings for the upcoming Bond Election. Both will begin at 6 p.m. and be held in the Boerne City Hall 1st Floor Training Room located at 447 N. Main Street.

  • Wednesday, September 21 
  • Wednesday, October 12

Election Information

  • Early voting: October 24 - November 4
  • Election Day: November 8

From the City's latest projections, for every one cent of tax rate, the City estimates being able to fund approximately $6 million in bond debt. With a $36 Million Quality of Life bond election, the average $380,000 home in Boerne could see an increase of up to 5.5 cents per $100 of taxable value, or $17 per month. These numbers are based on certified tax rolls from Kendall County. If voters approve the propositions, no tax rate increases would be considered until the City's Fiscal Year 2023-24 budget process which is finalized in September 2023. At that time, the City would determine if an increase in the tax rate would be required to fund the issued debt.

Prop A: Streets and Mobility


Click on the tabs below to learn about some of the priority projects for Prop A: Streets and Mobility. These projects could be included in the General Obligation Bond package.

  1. Adler Road

Adler Road

The Adler Road project calls for a major reconstruction of the pavement along Adler Road from Esser Road to Main Street. Other improvements include:

  • The addition of a two-way center left turn lane
  • A widening of the road
  • Drainage improvements.

The condition of this road was regularly noted in the 2021 Citizen Survey. The City of Boerne has assessed Adler Road a Pavement Condition Index (PCI) rating of 22 out of 100, indicating a poor pavement condition.

Northside Community Park

Located at 524 Adler Road, near the intersection of N. Plant Avenue/Topperwein Road and Adler Road, the 35 acres of land was purchased after the voter approved Quality of Life Bond Election in 2007. Since that time, few improvements have been made to the property. The development of Northside Community Park as identified on the Parks Master Plan is listed below and preliminary designs call for the following park features:

  • All-abilities playscape

  • Challenge course
  • Community room
  • Covered pickleball courts
  • Covered Basketball Pavilion
  • Dog park
  • Expanded skate park
  • Multi-use soccer and football fields with lights

How The Bond Propositions Were Developed


Council and Community Collaboration

Drawing on community input from the 2021 Citizen Survey – as well as the 2018 Master Plan, Mobility Master Plan, and Parks Master Plan – City Council focused on critical needs of the City while drafting a list of potential projects for the bond package. The areas of focus included streets, intersections, parks, and open space.

The Boerne City Council held several meetings and workshops prior to calling for the bond election. The list of potential projects was narrowed to include the two propositions that appear on this page.

Guiding Principles

City Council and staff identified the following principles to guide the bond development process:

  • Implementing the City's Master Plans
  • Improving Mobility and Quality of Life for Residents
  • Achieving Council and Community Input
