San José Evergreen Community College District
Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee
2020-2021 Annual Report
Letter From the Committee Chair

At Evergreen Valley College (EVC), the new Student Services Center design work continued to progress. This is a multi-part project consisting of a new student services building, a new entry road, a new student parking lot, a new administration building, and a new pedestrian plaza. Construction on the Language Arts building was also under way, and is estimated to complete in Spring 2023. This project encompasses building a multi-story classroom and office building, and will allow for a better pedestrian connection from the central green to the student parking lots to the north of campus.

The Committee wishes to report that, to the best of its knowledge, San José • Evergreen Community College District is in full compliance with the responsibilities as described in Article XIIIA, Section 1 (b)(3) of the California State Constitution, which address bonded indebtedness incurred by a community college district.

Respectfully submitted,

Leo Cortez
Committee Chair

To: The Board of Trustees and Citizens of the San José • Evergreen Community College District

The Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee is pleased to present its 2020-2021 Annual Report on the District's two general obligation bond programs. In November of 2010, the voters demonstrated their confidence in the District and passed Measure G-2010, a $268M general obligation bond initiative. In November 2016, the voters again supported the District by passing Measure X, a $748M bond initiative. These bond measures, established under Proposition 39, have the common goal of improving and equipping the teaching environments to better serve our students' needs. The Committee and the District wish to thank the community for their continued support of our students.

During the period that this annual report covers (July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021), the District continued to be faced with unique challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. The District was able to take the appropriate steps to safely continue the planning and construction activities of the bond program. As such, the Committee transitioned its meetings to Zoom and continued its work as well.

At San José City College (SJCC), construction activities progressed on the new Career Education Complex. The complex will house classrooms, labs, instructional support spaces, offices, and shared spaces to support student life. In addition, the Student Services Resource and Drop-in Center project completed in Summer 2021. This project provides a welcoming, student-owned area for students accessing student services, including a diverse range of furniture pieces as well as technology.
