The City of Norman releases Vision for Norman Bond and Utility Educational Materials

At its meeting on Jan. 22, Norman City Council voted unanimously to place two general obligation bonds and a new utility on a Special Election ballot for separate voter consideration on April 2, to address critical infrastructure needs and create a Vision for Norman’s future.
The propositions put forward are a $72 million transportation bond, a $60 million stormwater bond and tiered-rate-structure stormwater utility that would raise an estimated $4.2 million to improve stormwater infrastructure maintenance and operations. Each of these propositions undertakes needed infrastructure and maintenance projects that are unable to be supported by the City of Norman’s General Fund. Significant planning, research, and community input went into the development of each proposition to take into account the diverse needs of Norman’s citizens while keeping costs as low as possible for residents.
In preparation for Election Day, the City has published informational resources including a Vision for Norman website and brochures to help inform its citizens of this important decision.
Visionfor Norman Webpage
The Vision for Norman webpage, VisionForNorman.com, provides information related to each proposition’s content and development. Also on the website are answers to frequently asked questions and interactive maps for each proposition, including a searchable utility-rate-finder map.
