The Coastline Community College District in Orange County, Calif., wants to place a $700 million bond on the November ballot, according to the Orange County Business Council.
The business council participated in a blue ribbon panel in June that discussed the community college’s intent of placing the bond on the ballot.
Over the next two months, school officials plan to reach out to stakeholders to garner support for the measure.
It will be the second time in eight years that the district has gone to voters with a bond measure. In 2004, voters approved the $330 million Measure C.
Coastline officials believe the bond has an excellent chance of passing if local community control is certain and they are well informed as to how the money will be spent, according to the Business Council.
