In October 2016, Greensboro voters approved the City to borrow up to $38.5 million for economic and community development projects. Bond funds will be used to buy, build, improve or otherwise equip urban renewal and community development projects. The programs funded are meant to induce redevelopment, increase employment and economic development, prevent crime, and preserve older neighborhoods.
