SALINAS, Calif. - Hartnell Community College District is proud to release the 2012-2013 annual report of the Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee (BOC) for Measure H - a general obligation bond measure. This independent committee represents the taxpayers who supported Measure H by ensuring that its funds are expended according to what the voters approved in passing the Measure.
The report is available to view or download at http://www.hartnell.edu/h/oversight/Bond_Report_201213.pdf. The Hartnell CCD expresses its appreciation to the Citizens' BOC for its commitment to fulfilling its duties in representing the interests of the taxpayers.
"We can't thank the residents of the Hartnell CCD enough for having faith that we would be good stewards of the taxpayers' money in making Hartnell College an institution of learning excellence," expressed Hartnell Superintendent/President, Dr. Willard Lewallen.
In 2002, the residents of the Hartnell CCD voted to pass Measure H, a $131 million general obligation bond measure. The purpose of the bond measure was to address education facilities needs within the Hartnell CCD. Over the life of the bond measure, the District has built many new facilities and has renovated and modernized many other facilities.
The result of these facilities projects has been a transformation of Hartnell College into a modern, attractive, functional learning environment. Visitors, community members, students, and employees remark that the main campus of Hartnell College now looks more like a university than a community college.
Additionally, the Alisal Campus and the King City Education Center are exceptional facilities serving the education needs of residents throughout the District. Everyone can take tremendous pride in Hartnell College as a key component in improving the quality of life for those who attend and are playing a significant role in the economic development of the region. The final facility to be built with Measure H funds is the 56,000 sq. ft. science building. Construction on this project is scheduled to begin any day now. The building is programmed to be occupied in January 2016.
