Early voting for local elections starts in many communities today. In Raleigh, voters will pick a new mayor and members of the city council and school board. But they will also vote on two bond measures dedicated to housing and transportation.
The two bonds total $56 million dollars. Of that, about $40 million would go toward building bike lanes, greenways, and new sidewalks. It is the first bond ever proposed in Raleigh for these types of projects.
