Keller voters are being asked to approve an $8.2 million-dollar transportation bond proposal to fund nine much-needed roadway and intersection improvements.

This proposition arose from a citizens’ committee that studied which improvements were needed and listened to community input for six months. The end result includes projects that improve mobility, stimulate economic development and increase public safety.

Six are in or near Old Town Keller and Town Center. They will help stimulate retail growth, which will lead to more taxes collected from businesses and less from homeowners. The other three projects will fix dangerous hazards that pose safety risks for drivers.

The cost of the proposition will add only 1½ cents to our property tax rate, which is now and will remain one of the lowest municipal tax rates in Tarrant County. I ask Keller voters to invest in our city’s future and vote “yes” on Keller’s transportation bond proposition.

— John Hoffmann, City Council, Place 5, Keller
