ENID, Okla. – Enid voters have turned down one of the largest Parks and Recreation bond issues in the state’s history.
The $50 million bond would have been used to improve the recreational areas in the Enid community, especially playgrounds.
There were some concerns of the safety of the parks but other said the price tag was just too big for the improvements.
Almost 80 percent of the residents voted against the measure, just over 22 percent supported the bond issue.
Officials said they did not expect the this outcome.
They said they had only heard feedback from a few who disagreed with the measure.
