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
