The Pima County Bond Advisory Committee will meet today to begin reviewing roughly 135 bond projects worth an estimated $1 billion.

The meeting is the first of five planned meetings by the 25-member citizen panel assigned to review and slim down the number of proposals to be worth no more than an estimated $650 million before making a recommendation to the Pima County Board of Supervisors.

A bond election, if approved by the supervisors, would be held next year.

The meeting, to be held at the Arizona Riverpark Inn, 350 S. Freeway, will focus on 36 projects worth roughly $357 million related to libraries, community facilities and museums.

The meeting starts at 8 a.m.
