Construction Bond Information Night

Central Valley School District Superintendent Ben Small will present informational meetings regarding the district’s upcoming $69.6 million construction bond upon which voters will decide in February.

Tonight’s meeting will be held at Chester Elementary School, 3525 S. Pines Road, at 6:30 p.m.

Tomorrow night's meeting will be held at Evergreen Middle School, 14221 E. 16th Ave., at 6:30 p.m. On Wednesday, the meeting will be at Opportunity Elementary School, 1109 S. Wilbur, at 6:30 p.m. Thursday’s meeting will be held at Greenacres Elementary School, 17915 E. Fourth Ave., at 6:30 p.m. There will also be a meeting on Nov. 23 at 6 p.m. at Ponderosa Elementary School and Nov. 29 at 6 p.m. at Liberty Lake Elementary School, 23606 E. Boone.

The meetings will discuss the district’s need for expanding and remodeling several elementary schools and middle schools as well as the construction of a new elementary school at the intersection of Mission and Long. The project is estimated to cost $102.4 million and the district expects around $32.8 million in state matching funds.

If approved by voters, taxpayers in the district can expect an increase of 65 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value on their property taxes.

At least 60 percent of the votes, a supermajority, is needed to approve the construction bond.
