In 2023, voters in Travis County can expect a November bond election that would go toward improving roads, parks and other facilities. The specific projects and cost estimate for the bond will be determined by a 15-member court-appointed Bond Advisory Committee, which will meet weekly to determine the county’s most critical needs.

“Travis County’s Citizen Bond Advisory Committee is a way for the public to let us know what they would like to prioritize in the next bond package,” Travis County Precinct 3 Commissioner Ann Howard said. “Whether it is transportation, the environment, facility planning, finance or health care, community involvement will shape Travis County’s future."

Each Travis County commissioner appointed three members to the bond advisory committee on Jan. 10. Travis County Judge Andy Brown appointed the committee chair, John Langmore, who also served as chair for Travis County’s 2017 bond committee. Those will begin meeting in January and serve for about eight months.Committee members are required to be Travis County residents without delinquent taxes and not employed or associated with a business that will profit from bond projects. All committee meetings will be open to the public and held after normal business hours.
