About Pima County’s Bond Programs
Since 1997, Pima County and its partner jurisdictions have completed over 700 bond projects with voter-approved bond funding, resulting in significant investments in this community’s infrastructure, providing tremendous benefit to the everyday lives of our residents and visitors, and creating thousands of construction-related jobs. The projects are located throughout Pima County, including within cities, towns and tribal areas. They include new and improved libraries; community centers; parks and trails; health and medical facilities; affordable housing; justice and law enforcement facilities; historic preservation; roads; wastewater facilities; flood control improvements; and much more. Funding for the projects was approved by voters at county-wide elections held in 1997, 2004, and 2006. In 2014, voters approved funding for a new Pima Animal Care Center.
