Voters made a major statement about their commitment to investing in the Ann Arbor Public Schools on Tuesday, passing the state’s largest capital bond proposal in 25 years.

The $1 billion proposal on the Tuesday, Nov. 5 election ballot asked voters for a tax increase of 1.65 mills. The district will levy a total of 4.1 mills, as it continues to pay off previous debt, which will be consolidated with the new bond.

The proposal was approved with 12,829 votes in favor (53.3%), and 11,259 against (46.7%), according to unofficial results from the Washtenaw County Clerk’s office.
