Measure B Bond

Welcome to the
Measure B Bond Program

Thanks to the voters of the College of the Desert Community College District, Measure B, a $346.5 million bond measure, successfully passed on March 2, 2004. This measure will provide the necessary funds to improve and expand the districts educational centers. New classrooms, computer labs, and science labs will accommodate expanded job training and academic programs. As a result, College of the Desert will help to provide a better-educated workforce, which will benefit local business and stimulate our economy.

Measure B represents a large portion of the College's $372 million Facilities Master Plan and only includes the most critical needs of the College. The Facilities Master Plan results from the collaboration of many, including students and staff at the College of the Desert and individuals and groups from communities in the Coachella Valley, the College's service area.

An independent Citizen's Oversight Committee guarantees that all bond funds are spent exactly as promised to ensure taxpayer safeguards and confidence.
