PHOENIX-Hoping to cope with rapid growth that’s expected to accelerate even more, residents of two West Valley suburbs have approved more than $420 million in bond issues aimed at improving the region’s infrastructure.

In Peoria, a northwest suburb of Phoenix, a bond issue was approved that will raise $282 million to pay for new roads, several new parks and two new water-treatment plants.

In Goodyear, a suburb southwest of Phoenix, voters passed a $138-million bond package. The funds will be used for water system improvements, new police stations and for transportation improvements and construction. As much as $12 million will be spent to build, acquire, improve, renovate or remodel public buildings, which could include the library, City Hall and a municipal service and maintenance center.
