The San Diego Community College District’s (SDCCD) construction bond program, funded by voter-approved Proposition S, a $685 million bond passed in 2002, and Proposition N, an $870 million bond passed in 2006, is providing for new, state-of-the-art instructional and career training facilities, major renovations, public safety and accessibility enhancements, parking, and campuswide infrastructure projects at City, Mesa and Miramar colleges, and seven Continuing Education campuses.
All construction is completed in accordance with the District’s Green Building Policy and other sustainability directives.
Laws governing the passage of Propositions S & N require strict accountability for the spending of funds, and include annual independent audits and public oversight through an independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee.
In addition to serving as an investment in the future of education in San Diego, the construction bond program has served as an investment into the local workforce. To date, there have been more than 10,000 prevailing wage jobs generated on Propositions S & N projects.
