Those who still have questions about the city’s bond proposals are invited to a mixer from 4:30-6 p.m. on Thursday at Hearsay Wine Bar.


Vision Stephenville, a political action committee consisting of local citizens and business owners, is hosting the event.

“The committee will be there to answer questions from the public, and we will have some maps and artist renderings from the developers,” local business owner Julie Lowrance told Beneath the Surface News.


Julie is the owner of Frames Etc and is heading up the PAC.


The mixer, she said, is aimed at clearing up misconceptions about the bond and its tax implications.


“We want to get the real information out there,” she said.

Stephenville residents will be asked to vote on the $21 million bond package in May.


The bond includes five propositions aimed at revitalizing the downtown area.


The largest is an $8 million proposition that includes the construction of a single facility at Stephenville City Park that will house the public library, senior center and recreation hall.


Other propositions involve downtown revitalization, street improvements and the expansion of the Bosque River Trail.


Residents will vote on each measure separately.
