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.

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.
