May 2 Bond Election Called for NRH Streets
The North Richland Hills City Council has called an election for May 2 to decide if the city should issue $49.875 million in bonds for street construction projects including Glenview Drive, Iron Horse Boulevard, Chapman Road, Bedford-Euless Road, Lariat Trail and others. If voters approve the proposition, it’s projected that property owners won’t see a tax rate increase to pay for the bonds as the city continues to pay down its debt. 

A group of 35 North Richland Hills citizens serving on the 2020 Capital Program Advisory Committee evaluated the city’s infrastructure needs and recommended the City Council call the bond election for street improvements. The last time North Richland Hills held a bond election for street improvements was in 2003. You can find more information about the bond election at www.nrhtx.com/2020bond .

NRH is Counting on You for 2020 Census
The City of North Richland Hills is counting on you to make sure everyone in our community is counted in the 2020 Census. The 2020 Census form will arrive in your mailbox in March and it’s important that every person in your household be counted. Filling out the census ensures North Richland Hills gets its fair share of federal funding for healthcare, public schools, job training, emergency services and more during the next 10 years. It also helps Texas receive accurate representation in the U.S. House of Representatives. Don’t let our city or state be underrepresented!

Starting in May, census takers will begin visiting homes that haven’t responded to the census to ensure everyone is counted. The best way to avoid a follow-up visit from a census taker is to fill out the 2020 Census questionnaire as soon as you receive it. For more information about the census, please go online to www.2020census.gov
NRH Citizen's Survey Results
North Richland Hills continues to be a good place to live and most residents are satisfied with city services, although improvements are needed in the areas of street maintenance and code enforcement. Those are the major findings of the latest citizens survey which was conducted last fall. The survey was completed by 1,630 residents. You can learn more at www.nrhtx.com/survey
Meadow Road Improvements to Begin Soon
Meadow Road is being repaved this spring in a joint project with Tarrant County Precinct 3, which reduces costs and allows the city to stretch street maintenance dollars further. The work is expected to begin on March 19 and will last approximately 3 weeks, weather permitting. Motorists should plan to use alternate routes, such as Smithfield Road or Rufe Snow Drive, during this project. Lane closures and other project updates will be shared on our website and social media as they become available. This project is part of the city’s ongoing Preventive Street Maintenance Program. You can find more information about the program on our website
