Take a look at Corpus Christi’s $125 million bond program in the 2022 election

There are more than political hopefuls appearing on this year’s crowded ballot. For residents of Corpus Christi, there is also $125 million.

That funding, if approved by voters, would be earmarked for projects ranging from streets and parks to public safety support and a library facelift.

Proposal A would be the largest, tackling 15 street projects with $92.5 million – the largest of these undertakings being the reconstruction of Yorktown Boulevard between Rodd Field Road and Oso Bridge. It would ring in at around $20 million.

Under Proposal B, $20 million would be budgeted for parks, with a menu including the design of what would be a new North Beach Eco Park and the construction of a new swimming pool at Bill Witt Park.

Public safety projects under Proposal C would include the early stages of replacing two fire stations and pursuing two new police substations, such as land acquisition and project design.

Proposal D would involve renovating the exterior of La Retama Central Library in the city center, according to the city’s bond guide.

Project descriptions and price tags are considered estimates as circumstances may change in the future, such as fluctuations in building material costs, which would result in adjustments.

Here are some of the notable projects included in the 2022 bond program.
