::Raleigh Will Vote On $88 Million Park Bond

From Raleigh Chronicle Staff Reports
Wednesday June 27, 2007

RALEIGH - The Raleigh City Council just approved a bond referendum on June 19th that will allow the public to approve or disapprove the issuing of $88.6 million in new bonds to pay for new parks in the city.

The vote on the referendum will not exactly appear on a heavy voting day, but will be voted on during a special vote on October 9th, says the city.

According to Raleigh officials, if approved by voters, the bond referendum would include approximately:
---$16.1 million for unfunded projects that voters approved in the 2003 parks and greenway referendum;

---$16 million for greenway development;

---$15 million for park land acquisition;

---$4.9 million to expand the capacity of current facilities;

---$36.6 million for new facility development.

Although not designated as such, some or all of the $15 million slated for park land aquisition could go towards purchasing the state-owned Dorothea Dix property that currently houses the state mental health facility there.

The 306 acre campus is located in a prime area of downtown Raleigh and Raleigh recently made a $10.5 million offer to buy the property.  Other private Dix park groups said they are trying to raise $7 million to help purchase the land.  [see main story here]

The city named members of an advocacy committee that will help push for the passage of the bond.

Members of the advocacy committee were listed as Chuck Neely, Norman Camp, Jan Kirschbaum, George Chapman, Sig Hutchinson, Patricia Johnson, Sonny Montcastle, Jean Pope, Bob Rankin, David Knight and Pete Benda, Bill Ross and Bill Flourney.

Neely and Kirschbaum will co-chair the committee. Ross and Flourney will be the honorary co-chairs of the committee. ::
