On the May 19, 2020, voters in the LCC service area approved Measure 20-306, a $121.5 million bond measure to fund safety and security updates, seismic retrofitting, expanded Health Professions and Workforce Training Programs, and modernization of classroom technology throughout the district. Bond projects were selected based off structural and programmatic needs identified during a multi-year planning process involving the LCC Board, campus community, and members from local businesses.
Priority #1: Safety, security, and accessibility
Bond dollars will fund safety projects identified in the facilities master plan. Some college buildings are more than 50 years old and are seismically and structurally not up to code.
Priority #2: Workforce training and career technical education
LCC offers education, training, partnerships and local opportunities for Career Technical Education (CTE) and workforce retraining. Bond dollars will provide updated learning spaces and technology for several programs, including Advanced Technology and Cybersecurity. In addition, the college will utilize a matching $8 million state grant to construct a new building on the main campus, which will allow for the expansion of high-demand Health Professions programs and provide a permanent home for Lane’s Dental Clinic.
Priority #3: A local and affordable education
Without the bond, LCC would have used general fund dollars for capital improvements. The bond provides an alternative source to fund facility improvements, allowing remaining general fund resources to be invested in education efforts as well as reducing the need for tuition increases.
