Measure G-2004 & G-2010 Newsletter

This is a semi‐annual email newsletter to help inform our San José • Evergreen Community College District community of the District’s progress on the implementaton of the voter‐approved Measure G programs. The improvements made possible by these voter-supported bond measures have allowed us to continue our mission to assist students in achieving their educational and employment goals.

Measure G-2010 Update

On November 2, 2010, voters approved Measure G-2010, authorizing the District to issue $268 million in bonds. The District has since accessed $210 million of this authorization for important projects. At this time, the District desires to access the remaining $58 million in unissued bond authorization. The Board of Trustees has reviewed the financing plan and the legal documents for this final Measure G-2010 issuance. It is expected that the financing will be completed in June 2016, when the bond proceeds will be available for approved Measure G-2010 projects.
