2014 Report to Our Communities by the Measure G Citizen's Oversight Committee
In March 2004, voters in the Citrus Community College District approved Measure G, a $121 million General Obligation Bond measure, to prepare local students for four-year colleges, and to train local residents for high-skilled jobs by:
* upgrading campus safety and security;
* expanding academic facilities, vocational technology, emergency medical training, nursing/dental classrooms, and computer labs;
* repairing and rehabilitating aging facilities and infrastructure;
* and, constructing and equipping classroom buildings, science labs and student support facilities.
Facilities improvements to be funded by Measure G were identified following more than two years of work by Citrus College faculty, staff, students, independent facilities professionals, and community residents. The result of their work is a comprehensive Educational and Facilities Master Plan.
To be implemented over the next eight to ten years, the
Educational and Facilities Master Plan provides a cost-effective "road map" to achieve high quality instructional facilities required to accommodate future academic and enrollment needs of our communities.
Laws governing passage of Measure G require strict accountability for the spending of funds received as a result of voter-approved bonds. These include annual independent audits and public oversight. An independent Citizens' Oversight Committee (COC), comprised of local senior citizens, homeowners, and taxpayers, among others, has been appointed to monitor expenditure of all Measure G funds and to keep the public informed of the progress of the Measure G.
This website will provide the public with information about the status of the bond funding and the work of the Citizens' Oversight Committee.
