While many aspects of the US national election are still up in the air, Charlotte voters gave a firm “yes”  to nearly $200 million in three bonds that could shape the future of Charlotte’s affordable housing and public transportation.

The bonds will fund construction and revitalization of transportation corridors including streets and sidewalks, more affordable housing, and improvements to neighborhoods in established and emerging high-growth areas.

WCNC reported that all three bonds passed on the Nov, 3 ballot allocating $102.7 million for transportation, $50 million for affordable housing and $44.5 million for neighborhood improvements.

Results for the Charlotte housing bond at at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday were 318,313 (77%) in favor and 94,946 (23%) against.
