Raleigh City Council May Put Parks, Greenway Bond On Back Burner

Posted May 6, 2003 4:07 a.m. EDT

— Raleigh's parks and greenways bond may be on the back burner until the economy starts simmering again.

City officials have been considering a $47 million bond referendum to expand and improve local parks and trails.

Some council members say it does not make sense to sell bonds in a sluggish economy. They also do not want to raise taxes to help pay for it.

The council may put off the project until the economy picks up.
