Early Voting Continues through Friday
More than 50% of NRH registered voters have already cast their ballot for the Nov. 3 Election. Early voting continues from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Friday, Oct. 30, and polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 3. Voters can go to any polling location in Tarrant County. View a map of early voting locations and wait times here. A list of election day polling locations is available here.

North Richland Hills’ bond proposition for street improvements will appear at the end of the ballot, after federal, state and county offices. Voters will decide if the city should issue $49,875,000 in bonds for street improvements. Reconstruction of 27 streets is proposed including Glenview, Iron Horse, Bedford-Euless, Chapman, Lariat and others. 35 North Richland Hills citizens serving on the 2020 Capital Program Advisory Committee recommended the street reconstruction projects. They looked at several factors including existing pavement conditions, traffic volumes, maintenance records, input from citizen surveys and estimated costs. While there are additional streets in need of reconstruction, the committee limited its recommendation to what the city can afford without increasing the property tax rate.

2 City Departments Honored with Awards
International Economic Development Council Awards
The City of NRH and its Economic Development Department recently received two awards from the International Economic Development Council (IEDC), a Washington D.C. based industry organization representing over 5,000 professionals. Out of a pool of nearly 500 entries, the annual awards recognize the world’s best economic development programs, projects and partnerships. These awards honor both organizations and individuals for their efforts in creating positive change in urban, suburban and rural communities. The city’s work on the City Point Development received a Silver Award for Creative Financing and a Bronze Award for Real Estate Redevelopment and Reuse. The honor was presented at a virtual awards ceremony during the IEDC’s annual conference.

“The winners of IEDC’s Excellence in Economic Development awards represent the very best of economic development and exemplify the ingenuity, integrity, and leadership that our profession strives for each and every day,” said 2020 IEDC Board Chair and One Columbus CEO Kenny McDonald. “We’re honored to recognize the communities whose programs, projects and partnerships have measurably improved regional quality of life.”

American Planning Association Award
Earlier this month, the Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association recognized the City of North Richland Hills and its Planning Department with the 2020 Transportation Achievement Gold Award for the city's Vision 2030 Transportation Plan. This plan provides a roadmap for moving the city’s transportation system into the next generation as the community continues to grow and mature. As an update to the City’s 2007 Thoroughfare Plan, the plan takes the step forward to incorporate all road users – people driving, walking, bicycling, and riding transit – to balance the various needs.

The APA Texas Planning Awards Program recognizes individuals, organizations and communities for outstanding contributions to planning in Texas. Award recipients were selected based on originality and innovation, engagement, implementation and effectiveness, quality, and promotion of planning.
Thank You Fix It Blitz Volunteers
We are grateful for a community that looks out for its neighbors and takes care of one another!

Each project not only helped residents in need, it also made a positive impact on the neighborhood. There were 3 fence replacements, 5 painting projects and 4 major yard cleanups. In addition to individual volunteers, volunteer groups included: City of NRH staff, North Richland Hills Baptist Church, Gateway Church and North Park Baptist Church.
