CSD Bond History

The November 2013 bond attempt ($15 Million)

CSD did not provide a list of projects but wanted a substantially larger new building than the square footage currently in use in the middle school. They also attempted to roll in the purchase of the ServPro building (an equally old building as the current middle school).

The May 2014 bond attempt ($9.4 Million)

This attempt included information to voters from the “Vote Yes” web site that listed many safety concerns that were debunked. Read here. There was also no compromise on the size of the building that CSD wanted. In fact, this bond attempt would have created two buildings.

The November 2014 bond attempt ($8.5 Million)

This bond again included a larger building – but this time they sidetracked the campus wide safety needs. This would have been a phased approach. Had this bond passed, they would have built a larger building and then returned to the voters to pass a bond for the safety issues.

The May 2016 bond attempt ($15.9 Million)

$11.9 Million + $4 Million Matching = 15.9 Million. This bond was just about 3 times the matching funds. CSD also applied for 1.5 million in additional seismic grant money (CSD was not awarded this money). The square footage in use at the current middle school as of bond time:  About 15,000 sf. Square footage for the original proposed building in the November 2013 Bond: 20,000 sf.

As of the February 2016 School Board meeting, it appeared that the new wanted square footage was 133,700 SF. We currently use 68,400 SF. This would have meant an overall expansion of over 65,000 SF more than currently in use. Select here for more details.
