City bond propositions

Georgetown residents will vote on four City bond propositions that would provide funding to build a new Customer Service Center; completely renovate and expand the Georgetown Recreation Center on Austin Avenue; increase the City’s animal sheltering capacity; and partner with the YMCA of Central Texas to build a jointly owned recreation center.

The City expects to fund all four projects in the 2023 bond package within the existing tax rate, which has not increased since 2015. 

Prop A: Customer Service Center ($56 million)

Prop A would fund the construction of a Customer Service Center that would house most of the City’s most frequently visited, public-facing departments under one roof in a central location with ample parking. This one-stop-shop would include utility billing, customer care, 3-1-1, planning, permitting, engineering, information technology and human resources. The City anticipates building the Customer Service Center on land it already owns on FM 1460 across from the Georgetown Municipal Complex.

Prop B: Rec Center Expansion and Renovation ($49 million)

Prop B would fund the complete renovation of the Georgetown Recreation Center as well as a 30,000-square foot expansion. The resulting 95,000-square-foot recreational center would add a third gym and more multi-purpose space so summer camps and youth sports leagues could expand. The project would also include separate dedicated spaces for seniors and teens year-round; a larger childcare center and a new indoor playground; renovations to the indoor lap pool to enable more recreational uses; a longer indoor track; more fitness studios; a new covered outdoor fitness area; and more parking.

Prop C: Animal Shelter Expansion ($15 million)

Prop C would give the City the flexibility to expand its animal sheltering capacity by either joining the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter (WCRAS) or expanding the current City shelter.

At this time, City Council has expressed a preference for joining the WCRAS, which is located in Georgetown, because it would save money long-term by allowing the City to split operating costs with the County and four other cities already participating in the regional shelter.  If for any reason the partnership does not move forward, the bond funds would be used to expand the City’s current shelter or build a new one.

Prop D: YMCA Partnership ($10 million)

The City of Georgetown and the YMCA of Central Texas propose to build a jointly-owned indoor recreation center at 6200 Williams Dr.  that is expected to include fitness and wellness areas, childcare amenities, multipurpose rooms and an aquatics center with a pool for recreation and lap swimming as well as a splash pad. The City’s financial contribution to construction would be capped at $10 million, and the YMCA would cover all operating costs long-term.
