WELCOME TO Measure C
Welcome to the Measure C website. We are excited to share with you the endeavors of the citizens of Coalinga and their accomplishments in supporting West Hills College Coalinga.
In the June 2008 election, West Hills Community College District was successful in obtaining authorization from the voters within School Facilities Improvement District No. 2 to issue up to $11,600,000 aggregate principal amount of the District’s general obligation bonds, pursuant to a 55% vote. The election was conducted under Proposition 39, chaptered as the Strict Accountability in Local School Construction Bonds Act of 2000, at Section 15264 et seq. of the Education Code of the State (“Prop 39”).
Measure C has provided financing for long-term construction and facilities improvement projects within the supporting communities of the SFID. Property owners are paying less than $25.00 per year per $100,000 of assessed valuation of their property.
School Facilities Improvement Districts (SFID) are an option for School Districts in California for specific projects within a School District. They allow a district to design specific “assessment” to address the special needs of the specific communities within their boundaries. Part of the SFID process requires specialized Land Surveying & Mapping Services to create these new Districts. School Facilities Improvement District No. 2 consists of Coalinga, Huron and the surrounding communities.
