The City of Arlington has launched a regular Bond Tracker segment for MyArlingtonTV to keep residents informed about the progress of construction on dozens of projects that were included in the City's bond elections.

This month's episode features the improvements set to begin soon at Deaver Park in southwest Arlington. The project includes a longer walking trail and new shaded playground equipment. Phase two will feature the installation of an overlook that will provide views over the restored natural area.

The Arlington City Council approved a $411,000 contract in June with Schmoldt Construction, Inc. of Celina for the park's extensive makeover, expected to be complete by early 2019. Various sections of this 15.2-acre neighborhood park, located at 5800 Kelly Elliott Road, will be closed during construction. Arlington voters approved the park improvements during the 2014 bond election.

The Deaver Park improvements align with the Arlington City Council priority to Champion Great Neighborhoods.

In November 2014, Arlington voters approved a five-year, $236 million dollar bond package. Projects included in the package focus on street improvements, Parks & Recreation, Fire Department facilities and City Libraries.

The City offers residents an interactive Bond Tracker website, filtered map, updated stories and videos on construction projects, and complete list of the Capital Budget Planning and Project Sequencing for the 2014 Bond Program here.

Each project will be updated on the website and the City will post stories, videos and pictures of the progress of those projects.
