Potential 2022 Quality of Life Bond Election

The Boerne City Council has held four workshops in preparation for making a decision whether to call a Quality of Life Bond Election for our community. This election would be held in conjunction with the November General Election for local, state, and federal offices. The Council is using the guiding principles of implementing the City’s Master Plans, increasing public safety, improving mobility and quality of life for residents, and achieving City Council and community input to finalize the decision.

If the City Council moves forward with a Bond election, the total amount of the bond propositions will be determined in upcoming months. From our latest projections, for every one cent of additional tax revenue, the City estimates being able to fund approximately $6 Million in bond debt. Assuming the potential of a $40 Million Quality of Life bond election, the average $340,000 home in Boerne could see an increase of 7 cents per $100 of taxable value or $20 per month.

This webpage is designed to provide information about the potential City of Boerne Quality of Life Bond Election. It does not advocate passage or defeat of the measure and is intended only for informational purposes. It does not discuss any of the other matters that are to be voted upon should City Council call for a November 8, 2022, election.

How the Bond Package is Being 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 is focusing on critical needs of the City while drafting a list of potential projects for the proposed bond package. The areas of focus include Parks and Open Space, Facilities, and Streets and Sidewalks.
