2018 Wake County Bond Referenda

One of the things that makes Wake County special is our high quality of life.  Business leaders looking for a place to locate or expand their companies say it's a significant factor in why they choose Wake County.  Families, young people and seniors also cite our quality of life as a top reason for making Wake County their home.

We're proud of our reputation as a great place to live, work, learn and play. We're committed to maintaining it now an din the year to come.

As our community of more than 1 million continues to grow rapidly, we must plan for the impact our increasing population will on the the:

  • Wake County Public School System;
  • Wake Tech Community College; and
  • Parks, Greenways, Recreation and Open Space

That's why we brought before the voters three bond referenda on November 6, 2018 - to make sure those investments are made at the lowest cost to the taxpayers.  Voters approved each bond.
