Fort Bend County mobility bond election
Voters will be presented with a proposed $218.6 million mobility bond, which includes 63 projects across the county's four precincts. The bond is not expected to affect the county’s property tax rate, according to county officials. The total cost of the 63 projects is $388.1 million, according to county documents. The county expects to cover 56.2 percent of the project costs and plans to partner with other developers to cover the remaining costs.
