2014 Bond Referendum

On Nov. 4, 2014, Wake Forest voters will have the opportunity to head to the polls to weigh in on a $25.1 million bond for three separate capital projects totaling $55 million.

The bond referendum calls for three ballot questions that voters will consider separately:

  1. Street & Sidewalk Improvements - $6.3 million
     
  2. Parks & Recreation Facilities - $14.2 million
     
  3. Greenway Improvements - $4.6 million

The goal of this site is to offer voters the opportunity to learn more about their options.

Voters Approve Three Bond Questions 

Wake Forest voters have approved all three questions on the referendum ballot for the Town of Wake Forest. 

The $25.1 million bond referendum is slated to fund projects totaling $55 million with much of the difference being made up by matching grants. 

Although the property tax impact could be up to 2 cents per $100 of assessed property value, an increase may not be necessary if the town's revenues continue to increase at the current rate. 

Since there are multiple potential projects included in each bond order, the  projects and the respective debt issuance will be spread out over seven years.
