RCCD Board of Trustees is considering placing a college improvement bond measure on an upcoming 2020 ballot. If approved, a measure could generate up to $840 million in locally controlled funding to:
Maintain classrooms and student service centers by replacing leaky roofs, rusty plumbing and outdated and faulty electrical systems where needed
Improve access for students with disabilities at all campuses
Upgrade outdated classrooms, science labs and career training facilities to keep pace with current industry standards and allow for state-of-the-art courses in biology, chemistry and physical sciences
Expand and improve Veterans’ Centers at all campuses, which provide job training, placement, counseling and support services to military veterans and their families
Improve student safety and campus security systems including security lighting, cameras, emergency communications systems, smoke detectors and fire alarms
How much would the measure cost?
While no final decision has been made, a potential measure could provide up to $840 million in locally controlled funding for improvements to college facilities, and cost property owners no more than $25 per $100,000 of assessed (not market) value or approximately $66 per year for the typical homeowner.
