Charlotte voters Tuesday will decide on the largest bond referendum in the Southeast — $203.6 million for road, neighborhood, and housing projects.
The referendum is part of the city’s five-year capital improvement plan. Voters will face three separate questions — $156.6 million for roads, $32 million for neighborhoods, and $15 million for housing.
The total ballot package is the 13th largest in the country, according to Thomson Reuters.
In 2008, voters in Mecklenburg County, which includes Charlotte, approved $250 million of debt for parks and recreation projects. The referendum passed by 62%, according to the county’s website.
