Community Facilities Bond Plan
Financing Future Projects
Chesterfield County is requesting a bond referendum (election) for Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2022. A bond referendum is a vital component of the local democratic process in which citizens vote on the financing of the county’s long range capital plan. Voters will consider one question to approve key projects for schools, public safety, libraries and parks. An affirmative vote grants the county authority to issue general obligation (GO) bonds to finance a finite list of projects. The total amount of the bonds for which voter approval is sought is $540 million, including $375 million for school facilities and $165 million for other county facilities (public safety, libraries and parks).
What Will the Question Look Like on the Ballot?
Shall the County of Chesterfield, Virginia, contract a debt and issue its general obligation capital improvement bonds in the maximum amount of Five Hundred Forty Million Dollars ($540,000,000) to provide funds to finance various capital improvement projects for (1) public school system purposes, (2) public safety purposes, (3) public library purposes and (4) parks and recreation purposes?
Voting ‘Yes’ on election day signifies approval of the Community Facilities Bond Plan.
