2023 Parks and Recreation Bond

Fuquay-Varina resFV Bonds_Parks and Rec bond referendum 2023idents will have the opportunity to vote on a Parks and Recreation Bond totaling $60 million. The referendum will ask voters whether they approve of the Town’s use of General Obligation (G.O.) Bond financing to pay for parks and recreation projects.

Potential Projects identified in the 2024 Comprehensive Systemwide Master Plan to be advanced with Bond funding include:

  • Future Recreational Park, 70+ acres, including baseball, softball, soccer, and similar outdoor athletics fields, shelter, restrooms, and other amenities. Location TBD.
  • Hilltop Needmore Town Park & Preserve Improvements, Implementation of priorities from the adopted Master Plan, including two ballfields, pickleball courts, resurfacing of walking trails, and additional parking.
  • Indoor Sports Complex for basketball, pickleball, volleyball, and other indoor sports
  • Greenway, Location TBD
  • Fuquay-Varina Community Center Renovation

What is the tax implication? 

If the Parks & Recreation Bond is passed, the tax implication for a $60 million bond could impact property tax by an increase of up to 8 cents.  The impact on the median family home in Fuquay-Varina ($280,106 as of January 2022) would be $224 per year or $19 per month.

Historically, the Fuquay-Varina Town Board has tried to minimize the tax impact by utilizing growth in revenues, grant funding, and staggering projects in phases.

In 2021, citizens passed an $18.5 million Parks & Recreation Bond funding Community Center North at Hilltop Needmore Town Park and Preserve, which will begin construction this fall and open to the public in early 2025. Utilizing several strategies, the Town brought the project in at a 3-cent property tax rate increase as opposed to a 4.5-cent property tax rate increase, which was initially discussed as the potential impact of passing the 2021 Bond Referendum.

Attend the Parks and Recreation Bond Public Information Meeting on October 9 from 6 - 7:30 pm at the Hilltop Needmore Town Park and Preserve Clubhouse (4621 Shady Greens Drive) to learn more.
