Fairfield-Suisun School District trustees heard an overview Thursday of Measure J projects that have been completed and the final projects that need to be completed in coming years.
Measure J, a $249 million general obligation bond that’s being repaid through property tax assessments, was approved by voters June 7, 2016, with the third and final bond sale occurring Feb. 20, 2020. The presentation comes at a time when the school board is placing another property tax measure to finance future projects on the November ballot.
The Measure J projects started with the replacement of the synthetic tracks and fields in the stadiums at all three comprehensive high schools in 2016. The district has completed several projects and is in design for most of the final projects of the bond program.
