The Prince William County Board of Supervisors whittled down its original list of seven parks projects proposed for an upcoming bond referendum to just five after a contentious meeting Tuesday, June 25.

The supervisors approved a list of five outdoor parks projects projected to require $41 million in future bond financing.

The list does NOT include a proposed $84 million indoor track facility for eastern Prince William County or an indoor track and field house planned for the western part of the county.

Both were removed from the list after Parks, Recreation and Tourism Director Seth Hendler-Voss said the county had already received input from private operators and developers interested in partnering with the county on those projects.

Here's a list of the projects that voters will be asked to approve on the Nov. 5 ballot.

This compilation of slides does not include a proposed $3 million for artificial turf fields at Howison Park, which the board added to its proposed list during its June 25 meeting.
