All three propositions in Missouri City's $85.85 million bond have passed, according to the latest election results. This is the largest bond in city history.

As of 8:30 a.m. Nov. 3, Fort Bend County is reporting all Election Day results, with just overseas and some provisional ballots remaining, elections officials said. Harris County—where the Missouri City neighborhood of Fondren Park is located—is reporting results from all of its 704 voting centers.

Proposition A received 73.63% support, or 4,546 votes in favor of it. At $51.615 million, Proposition A makes up more than half of the bond package and will be used to reconstruct streets and other mobility projects.

The $11.22 million Proposition B was supported by 67.54% of voters, receiving 4,157 votes for it. The smallest proposition on the ballot, Proposition B will fund updates to city facilities.


Proposition C, which totals $23.015 million, is dedicated to park improvements. Proposition C received support from 69.24% of voters, or 4,261 votes in favor. The largest project funded through this proposition is a $10 million to overhaul the Sta-Mo Sports Complex.

A maximum debt service tax rate of $0.1757 is needed to support the passage of the bond.

The $51.615 million Proposition A would completely reconstruction more than 80 streets across and city and be used for other mobility-related improvements. Proposition B allocates $11.22 million to update building infrastructure.

At $23.015 million, Proposition C would infuse money into four Missouri City parks, including $10 million for Sta-Mo Sports Complex and $3.5 million for Freedom Tree Park. It would also improve or add trails at five city parks.

If the propositions are approved by voters, the maximum debt service tax rate needed to support the bond would be $0.1757. This represents a $0.04089 increase over the debt service tax rate adopted for fiscal year 2021-22.
