On November 2, 2004, the voters of our community passed Measure H, allocating $235 million in bond funds to the West Valley – Mission Community College District. Since that time our campuses have undergone significant transformation through the incorporation of technology and infrastructure upgrades, classroom modernizations, and the addition of flexible learning space, resulting in safer, more energy efficient and inspiring environments. We have carefully and judiciously managed a combination of bond, bond interest, state capital outlay and grant funds to successfully deliver:
- Photovoltaic programs on each campus
- New construction: 7 projects | 192,401 SF
- Renovation/Modernization: 12 projects | 301,146 SF
- Critically needed ADA compliant upgrades
- Site improvements to enhance parking, pedestrian flow and safety
This record of success has been possible thanks to a major commitment on the part of our students, distinguished Board Members, Citizens Bond Oversight Committee, administration and faculty, the community at large, and all our partners who came together with the shared vision of creating a safe, accessible, welcoming and inspiring educational environment for all.
As we continue to address the needs identified in our Master Plan through current and potential future bond measures, let us pause to reflect on the success of Measure H – a bond program we can all be proud of, which has been delivered to both voters and students as promised.
