 VOTE ON NOVEMBER 8TH

BOTH MUST PASS OR BOTH WILL FAIL.

  

This November, Broward County residents have the opportunity to vote on two ballot questions that represent two half-penny surtaxes in Broward County.  The questions will appear on the November 8th General Election ballot.  A half penny is to fund the countywide transportation system and a half penny is to fund local city improvement projects.  The proposal is structured so that both items must pass or both will fail.

The Transportation Half Penny for Broward County

Anyone who commutes outside of Weston, drives to college, goes downtown, or across the county, knows the frustrations that abound. The half penny for transportation would fund county-wide improvements for enhanced transit options, traffic signal synchronization, county roadways, intersection improvements, senior mobility options and public transportation including buses and rail.  Today’s mass transit system will not improve without this. 

The Infrastructure Half Penny for the Cities

The Infrastructure half penny would go to each of the cities, distributed by population.  It would fund the construction of capital improvements to public buildings and facilities, the purchase of equipment and public safety vehicles, local road and transportation projects and improvements (to be coordinated with County transportation projects), pedestrian safety projects, and recreation/conservation land acquisition.  The projects and infrastructure expenditures are determined by the needs of each community.

Weston has always held its appearance and quality of life in high regard.  We have identified almost 300 projects for construction over the next 30 years to maintain the appearance and value of our community including water and sewer improvements, roadway improvements, a new fire station and park in the Bonaventure community, and expansion of the Weston Community Center and improvements to City Parks.  

Please visit an Open House to see what a penny can do for you.
