voters came out in droves to support Measure
C in the November
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
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
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.
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
