The largest bond in city history will go before residents in the May 1 election. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The $364 million package, broken down into six propositions, is largely aimed at infrastructure improvements, Plano officials said earlier this year.

More than half of the bond—$231 million—is dedicated to street improvements, including reconstruction and overlay for many aging streets as well as traffic improvements. Infrastructure upgrades at parks and recreation facilities make up a bulk of the remaining costs with roughly $98 million in projects between two propositions.

If all of the bond measures pass, city staff estimates a maximum tax impact of just under $70 a year for the average Plano homeowner by fiscal year 2024-25.

Denton County voters must cast their ballots at their assigned precinct location on election day, while Collin County voters may cast their ballot at any vote center in the county. For a list of polling places, click here for Denton County or here for Collin County.
