Woodbridge, VA – On June 18th, the Prince William Board of County Supervisors will hold a discussion of bond referendum questions and review of a draft resolution.

The meeting will begin at 2:00 p.m. in the McCourt Building. County Supervisors were informed by county staff on a potential park and mobility bond referendum.

The bond will equate to 600 million dollars in transportation improvements and community park improvements here in Prince William County. Park projects include Howison Park Improvements, Long Park Improvements, Neabsco Park Development, and a Fuller Heights Expansion.

An estimated $200 million will go towards parks and indoor sports facilities. Also, an estimated $400 million will go towards transportation projects in Prince William County.

The Prince William Board of County Supervisors wants to hear the public’s opinion regarding mobility and park projects.

Previously released information regarding the Parks Projects: 

The recommended park projects are designed to improve and address community recreation needs. Most specifically, the projects will address the lack of indoor athletic space, including indoor track and field, court sports such as basketball and volleyball, wrestling, and indoor turf space for field sports. The parks projects also include passive and active use parkland, existing field improvements, and a number of trails, open space and general park improvements.

The recommended transportation projects will address major areas of congestion throughout the county and provide 50 new lane miles of roads along with 22 miles of bicycle and pedestrian facilities.
