In 2001, 2005 and 2008, voters of the LACCD service area passed three (3) general obligation bonds that infused $5.725 billion into improving the quality of our teaching and learning environment at each of our colleges and centers through the modernization and construction of facilities across the district.
In November 2016, voters of the LACCD passed Measure CC, a $3.3 billion facilities bond, the largest for a community college district in the history of California. Guided the campus academic and facility master plans, each of the nine colleges has assessed current and forecasted space and buildings needs over the next decade to address aging infrastructure, including roadways, water and sewer lines, ADA compliance, campus safety and emergency preparedness, business continuity and anticipated technology needs.
Our current bond program is just over eighty (80) percent complete, with major completion expected by April 2018. When completed, about 300 buildings and areas will have been touched and improved at LACCD.
