How the City of Mansfield is providing noteworthy essentials and remarkable experiences 

The Mansfield City Council is in the beginning stages of asking its residents to consider capital projects that would provide noteworthy essentials and remarkable experiences for the Mansfield community. 

From early September to early December, leaders throughout the City of Mansfield discussed capital projects with a committee of Mansfield residents known as the 2022 Bond Election Steering Committee. The committee was tasked with deciding which and how many of the capital projects to recommend to the City Council. Meetings with the committee were open to the public. 

At the Dec. 13, 2021 regular City Council meeting, the 2022 Bond Election Steering Committee recommended the City Council pursue five capital projects: a library, recreation, events, aquatics and fitness center; a Miracle League baseball field; a community park in the southwest quadrant of Mansfield coupled with upgrades to Michael L. Skinner Sports Complex; and expansions to the Walnut Creek and Pond Branch linear trails.

The City Council is considering calling a bond election as a method of funding these projects. The City Council will ultimately decide whether or not to call a bond election, and, should it call a bond election, would ultimately decide which and how many of the projects the committee considered would be placed on the ballot. The City Council must call for a May 2022 bond election by Feb. 18, 2022.
