    Clackamas Community College
    BOND INFORMATION

    During a two-year public engagement initiative, the community asked CCC to update and modernize classroom space that would provide more opportunities for job training and education.

    The response is a bond measure for the Nov. 4, 2014, election. The bond would include projects that are the highest priority for the community based on a series of surveys and business focus groups.


    Clackamas Community College serves more than 30,000 students each year at three campuses and a number of community extension sites. The college provides affordable education and training to students seeking high-demand careers and transfers to universities. 

    The goals of the Nov. 4 bond measure are to:

    • Increase local access to affordable educational programs that would allow students to transfer to four-year universities or obtain training for family-wage jobs
    • Train students in high-demand careers, such as nursing, engineering and manufacturing
    • Update and modernize equipment, labs and facilities so students are adequately trained to meet current industry standards

    What would the bond do?

    The bond measure, with $16 million in approved matching funds from the state, would:
    •  Construct an industrial technical learning center with labs and classrooms benefiting electronics, automotive, manufacturing, welding, skilled trades and apprenticeships
    • Add science classrooms; modernize, renovate and furnish other college classrooms and facilities; update and modernize equipment and technology, especially for training in high-demand careers, including healthcare and engineering 
    • Replace worn-out electrical, heating, ventilation and plumbing systems; do deferred maintenance to reduce operating costs and/or extend the life of college facilities; and make improvements to address seismic and security concerns
    • Construct a new workforce development facility by replacing the 61-year-old building on Harmony Community Campus; purchase property and the remaining interest in facilities
    • Replace the student services center on Oregon City campus to meet current and future student needs
    • Refinance the college's current capital debt and finance bond issuance costs, site improvements and demolition

    What would the bond cost?

     The $90 million bond measure is expected to result in no increase in the college's estimated average annual bond tax rate of 19 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. The bonds would be paid off in 26 years  or less from the date of issuance and may be issued in multiple series.
