The Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District’s (GCCCD) construction bond program, funded by voter-approved Proposition R, a $207 million bond passed in 2002, and Proposition V, a $398 million bond passed in 2012, is providing for the dramatic transformations of the Grossmont and Cuyamaca colleges into state-of-the-art sites of higher learning.

Modern, energy-efficient facilities constructed under Proposition R now provide the infrastructure for high-tech instruction and learning as more students than ever look to GCCCD for wide-ranging general education, preparation for transfer to a four-year institution, and in-demand career technical course offerings. In addition to allowing for the construction of modern facilities capable of handling high-tech demands of the digital age, Proposition R construction has provided for more than 2,700 jobs over eight years, with one-third of the work going to East County businesses located within the GCCCD boundaries.
Proposition V will provide for upgrades to career training facilities for science, medical, public safety and other in-demand fields. Technology upgrades will be made throughout the District in classrooms, libraries and sciences labs. Under Proposition V, a Veterans Support Center will be built on each campus, and access for persons with disabilities or mobility issues will be enhanced at all facilities.

Proposition V projects will adhere to the 2013 GCCCD Facilities Master Plan, which outlines four key areas for facilities planning:

  • Provide long-range guidance for the development of new facilities that will be needed to support the projected academic program of instruction and support services;
  • Identify the needs for refurbishment, repair or replacement of existing facilities that will be needed to support current academic programs of instruction and support services;
  • Include and integrate current construction and maintenance plans; and
  • Describe the District’s plans for environmental sustainability.

The Facilities Funding Plan provides a list of future projects, as well as their estimated costs and funding sources. 

Laws governing the passages of Propositions R & V require strict accountability for the spending of taxpayer funds. The District’s independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) provides thorough public oversight through annual independent program and financial audits and a detailed annual report highlighting program progress and to-date expenditure status.
