Bond Questions: 2016 General Election
In the November 8, 2016, General Election, Loudoun County voters are being asked to vote yes or no on four bond questions proposed by the Board of Supervisors. The Board is seeking voter approval for general obligation bond-financing of two years of capital projects instead of the usual one year. Consequently, the number of projects and overall dollar amounts are larger than in the past. 

In July 2016, the Board of Supervisors voted to include both Fiscal Year 2017 and Fiscal Year 2018 Capital Improvement Program projects on this referendum. The advanced timeline establishes a new schedule that obtains voter approval for general obligation bond financing for projects prior to the Board’s appropriation, or budgetary authority to expend funds.  

The projects included on this referendum are as follows:
