Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee

On March 2, 2004, the voters of the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District approved a historic bond measure designed to implement a capital improvement program for Chabot College in Hayward and Las Positas College in Livermore. On June 7, 2016, Measure A, the $950 million bond measure for Chabot and Las Positas Colleges, passed with 65% voter approval. Measure A will be used to upgrade aging classrooms and technology/science labs for career education to prepare students, veterans and workers for good jobs and university transfer, remove asbestos/retrofit buildings for earthquake safety, acquire, construct and repair sites/facilities/equipment, and improve campus safety/security.
A Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee is a requirement of Prop. 39 after the passage of both Measure A and B to review the expenditure of funds from the Proposition B general obligation bonds to ensure that bond revenues are expended only for the purposes described and that no bond funds are used for any teacher or administrative salaries or other operating expenses.

No employee or official of Chabot Las Positas Community College District, and no vendor, contractor or consultant of the District, nor the immediate families of any of the aforementioned entities, shall be appointed to the Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee.
