Voters will decide whether they want to approve more than $30.4 million in bonds to build more parks and recreational facilities in the Port City. Those include North Waterfront Park, a municipal golf course, and a soccer complex.

Mayor Bill Saffo said the last time voters passed a parks bond was in 2006.
