SBCC Approves $288 Million Bond Measure

The SBCC Board of Trustees approved placing a $288 million facility-improvement bond measure on the November ballot. The resolution is about $20 million less than the one the board had previously entertained, and it comes after approximately a year of deliberation. Among a slew of renovations and modernizations on the main campus and at the two satellite campuses, the bond measure would replace the college’s portable classrooms with a permanent building if approved by 55 percent of voters. Funds must be used on remodeling, not salaries, and would cost homeowners $16.65 per every $100,000 of their homes’ assessed valuation.
