Updated at 8:09 a.m. Nov. 3: This story has been updated to reflect the latest election results.

Unofficial results from Dallas and Collin counties show the majority of voters in Richardson voted to approve the city’s $190 million bond package.

Residents had the chance to decide on five individual bond propositions. Each proposition had at least 69% of support from voters, according to the counties' elections offices.

The package is largely aimed at infrastructure improvements. Proposition A for streets, alleys and traffic signals had 77.73% of voters in support; Proposition B for public buildings has 69.11% of voters in support; Proposition C for sidewalks has 75.78% of voters in support; Proposition D for flood control and drainage has 80.06% of voters in support; and Proposition E for parks has 74.69% of voters in support.

There will be no change to the city’s property tax rate as a result of the bond, Deputy City Manager Don Magner said in a previous interview with Community Impact Newspaper.
