Bond Measure S

In December 2001, the Ventura County Community College District's Board of Trustees approved a resolution for the placement of a bond initiative on the March 2002 Ventura County election ballot as Measure S. At the March 5 election, the citizens of Ventura County approved the issuance of bonds totaling $356.3 million for construction and rehabilitation of facilities on the three community college campuses and the Camarillo site.

At the meeting of the Board of Trustees on May 28, 2002, a Citizens Oversight Committee was established in response to Education Code Section 15278. The Citizens Oversight Committee has the statutory responsibility to inform the public concerning the district's expenditure of revenues received from the sale of the Measure S bonds.

The Office of Capital Planning, Design and Construction was assigned the responsibility for the management of the Measure S bond program including interface with the Citizens Oversight Committee and the oversight of all construction management activities contracted with Heery International.
