Unofficial election returns, including votes cast during the early voting period and on Election Day, show the North Richland Hills bond proposition for street improvements passing with 78.94% in favor and 21.06% against with 31,413 votes counted. Late Tuesday, election officials issued a statement that around 11,000 mail in ballots were still being counted in Tarrant County, some of which may be from North Richland Hills. For the latest election results, visit http://www.tarrantcounty.com/content/dam/main/elections/2020/1120/reports/cumulative.pdf The City Council will canvass the complete election results at a special meeting on Monday, Nov. 16, 2020 at 8:30 a.m.

Nearly 70% of the 46,549 registered voters in North Richland Hills cast ballots in the election. Thank you to all NRH voters who made your voices heard in the bond election. The bond program will allow the city to reconstruct 27 streets including Glenview, Iron Horse, Bedford-Euless, Chapman, Lariat and others, and will not require an increase in the city’s property tax rate. Thank you also to the 35 residents who served on the 2020 Capital Program Advisory Committee and provided valuable input in developing the bond proposition that was presented to the voters.  

This morning, city staff began planning to carry out these much needed improvements with projects to be phased in over the next 5 years. Our commitment to voters is to deliver high quality improvements in a timely manner and within budget. We will be creating a webpage to keep the public informed of the timeline and progress for each of the 27 street improvement projects. In the meantime, you can find a map of all of the projects included in the bond program at www.nrhtx.com/2020bond
