Connect NC is a $2 billion bond package that citizens across the state will have the opportunity to vote on in the primary election March 15, 2016. If the bond is approved, the Connect NC bond will support needed statewide capital improvements in education, parks, public safety, plant sciences, agriculture and water and sewer infrastructure which are vital to North Carolina’s competitiveness. Connect NC will not jeopardize the state’s strong credit rating and no new taxes or tax increases will be needed to finance Connect NC.
More than two-thirds of the Connect NC bond will fund critical improvements in higher education across the state, including $350 million for upgrades at community colleges. If the bond is approved, Mitchell will receive $3.2 million for repairs and renovations in both Statesville and Mooresville.
