There are seven areas for projects: Accessibility, Pioneer Courthouse Square, Playgrounds, Pools, Protecting Workers, Restrooms and Other Urgent Repairs, and Trails and Bridges.
The Bond is helping address PP&R’s estimated $450 million funding gap for major maintenance needs over the next 10 years.
