Ad Valorem Bond Projects

In November 2016, Plantation residents demonstrated their support for needed capital projects, voting overwhelmingly to authorize the City to secure $60 million ad valorem general revenue bonds.  By July 1, 2017 the City Council and Administration completed a required bond issuance process, authorizing City staff to proceed with implementation of 14 capital projects assembled under three (3) distinct categories: Public Safety, Parks and Recreation (P&R), and Public Works.  After accounting for bond issuance costs and additional staffing costs for project administration, the City established adjusted budgets for each category of projects.  Below is a summary of adjusted budgets.
