Measure B
2022-2023 Annual Report

Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee

Letter from Committee Chair

To: The Board of Trustees and Residents of the Marin Community College District

Marin County voters approved Measure B on June 7, 2016 for $265 million. This bond program’s purpose is to support the college in its work in providing modern, well-maintained educational facilities for the students of our community.

The Measure B-2016 Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) provides oversight for the general obligation bond program. The committee held four meetings during the 2022-2023 fiscal year.

The primary duties of the committee are to:

  • Review bond expenditures to ensure that proceeds have been expended for the purposes set forth in Measure B-2016
  • Inform the public concerning the district’s expenditure of bond proceeds
  • Present to the district’s governing board an annual report of the committee’s proceedings and activities of the previous fiscal year
  • Provide a statement indicating whether the district is in compliance with bond requirements

During the 2022-2023 fiscal year, major planning and construction activity continued for the new Learning Resources Center (LRC). Make‐ready work began in January 2023, with underground work such as shoring, grading, and ground improvements to prepare for the foundations of the physical building. Along with this, the Bolinas Field Station project progressed with planning and pre-qualification activities. Several community meetings were held to gather feedback on these important projects. Additionally, the public grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony for the Miwok Center took place on April 6th, celebrating another successful project funded by Measure B. Please visit the Featured Projects section of this Annual Report for more information on this year’s bond project activities.

The Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee reviewed Measure B-2016 activities throughout the 2022-2023 fiscal year. At these meetings, district and program management staff provided the committee with written and oral reports and presentations, as well as the financial and performance audit reports. Based on its review, the committee has concluded that the district is in compliance with the requirements of Article XIIIA, Section 1(b)(3) of the California constitution.

For more information regarding the committee’s proceedings, meeting minutes and agendas please visit the Measure B website.

The Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee thanks the community for their continued support.

Very truly yours,

Jason Lau, Ph.D.
Committee Chair
