On November 7, 2023 Phoenix voters passed the City Council approved $500 million General Obligation (GO) Bond Program. GO Bond programs help to fund critical infrastructure and rehabilitation needs of City facilities such as parks, libraries, fire and police stations, affordable housing, streets and storm drains. Approved projects will be prioritized and allocated over the five-year period of 2024-25 to 2028-29 and included in the Preliminary Capital Improvement Program (CIP) scheduled to be presented to City Council on March 19, 2024.
The City Council appointed a citizen's GO Bond Committee on June 1, 2022 to listen to community feedback, evaluate and prioritize proposed projects, and develop a GO Bond Program recommendation. The committee concluded their work on November 14, 2022. The GO Bond Recommendations were presented to and approved by the City Council on December 13, 2022.
On June 14, 2023, the Mayor and City Council voted to propose four GO Bond questions to voters during a Special Election in November 2023. These questions total $500 million, pursuant to the recommendations of the citizen's GO Bond Executive Committee.
