Marin County voters came out in droves to support Measure C in the November election. The $249.5 million bond for facilities maintenance, job training and safety passed with more than 60 percent of the vote, easily surpassing the required 55 percent.

"Marin residents showed they care about higher education, they care about modern job training, and they care about College of Marin," said Dr. Frances White, College of Marin president and superintendent. "The faculty, staff, and students offer our heartfelt thank you to Marin."

With the bond, the College will be able to:

  • Modernize science labs, classrooms, libraries;
  • Provide modern computer technology;
  • Upgrade fire safety, campus security, disabled access, energy conservation systems and electrical wiring for computer technology; and
  • Repair, construct, acquire, and/or equip classrooms, labs, sites and facilities.

The District embarked on a methodical process of evaluation and planning in 2002 to determine specific facilities needs and solutions. The effort involved faculty, staff, administration, students, and the community. The process included an extensive facilities condition assessment and six community meetings -- the high turnout at these meetings underscored the importance of the College to Marin residents.

Next Steps

In the coming months, the College will hire a project management firm to oversee the bond construction work. The firm will shepherd the many architects, contractors, and others involved in completing the renovations. Additionally, a seven member citizen oversight committee will be formed to monitor how the district manages the bond-funded projects.

Also, the College of Marin board of trustees passed a resolution in July adopting green building principles, which will govern all future construction at the college including projects funded by the bond (3.42 mb PDF *).
