$120M in Bonds Proposed for Winston-Salem

December 15, 2017

A citizens panel is recommending that Winston-Salem put $120 million in bonds before city voters to take care of needs ranging from economic development to streets and sidewalks. If the Winston-Salem City Council takes the next step, residents of the city could be voting on money for the improvements in the fall of 2018. The bond vote would be the second in four years, following a 2014 bond package that totaled $132.9 million, but even so, Glenn Orr, the chairman of the Citizens’ Capital Needs Committee, said there were $630 million in total requests to winnow down to the ones the committee values most.
