What will it cost?
On November 6, 2018, Doral voters will have the opportunity to vote on a General Obligation Parks Bond for $150 million that would help fund the construction of future Doral park projects. This bond will help provide the residents of Doral with access to numerous new recreation and leisure opportunities city-wide, and it is estimated that a 30 Year, $150 Million Bond could cost the typical household an average of $131-$139 per year in additional property taxes.*
*This was based off Miami Dade County’s 2018 assessment of the median homestead Doral residential taxable value of $193,121
It is important to note that there are two (2) key variables that will affect the final amount each household will contribute to the bond over its duration, which include the final interest rate (secured at bond issuance), and the point in the bond lifecycle.
Our Household Impact Calculator (below and on the City’s website) uses an estimated interest rate of 4.75%, when in reality this number could be lower or higher depending on when the bond is issued. For example, the current interest rate, as of October 1, 2018, is 3.75%. The final interest rate will only be locked down after the bond is approved by voters.
Our Household Impact Calculator averages the potential financial contribution of each household based on its taxable value. The resulting annual impact amount is an estimated annual average per year across the 30-year bond duration. In reality, the amount that each household will contribute towards the bond will fluctuate across the lifecycle of the bond based on how and when bond funds are issued. For example, the annual impact for each household will likely be lower in years 2020-2023 ($49-$99) and years 2050-2052 ($101-$51) when compared to years 2024-2049.
