Allen ISD invites voters on tour to show why he wants $ 23.6 million in bonds to modernize sports facilities
In November, Allen voters will decide on two bond proposals for the city’s schools totaling $ 23.6 million.
But ahead of the election, the school district is hosting in-person tours to help voters better understand the facilities that should get a facelift – if the proposals pass.
Here’s when the facility tours will take place:
- Saturday, September 25, 9 a.m. to noon. The registration deadline is Friday September 24 at noon.
- Wednesday, October 13, evening.
- Sunday, October 17 in the afternoon.
Registration is required to visit the facilities, which can be done here. The exact visit times for the October sessions have not yet been finalized.
The tour, which can be done by bus provided by AISD or by self-driving car, will take participants to the following locations:
- Allen ISD Activity Complex
- Eagle Stadium turf field
- Allen High School Tennis Complex
- Turf and Track at Ereckson Middle School (to see the all new Track / Turf system at Allen)
- The land at Ford Middle School
- The Lowery Freshman Center Field and Weight Barn
The meeting place for the visit will be sent to registered participants by e-mail.
District CFO Johnny Hill said it was a bond election with no tax rate hike. If Proposals A and B are passed, it would add $ 23.6 million to the district’s debt schedule without increasing the district’s property tax rate.
The November bond election comes just a year after the district’s previous $ 222 million bond election, in which two proposals worth $ 214 million were passed by a margin of less than 20 votes. The other two proposals worth over $ 7.5 million failed. A record number of over 48,000 people voted on the bond proposals for Allen ISD last year.
Now the school board is coming back to voters for another bond election with similar elements from last November.
Early voting will take place October 18-29.
Election day is November 2. The last day to register for the November 2 election is October 4.
