  • Bond Measure 3-447 Highlights

    In November 2014, voters in the Clackamas Community College district approved a $90 million bond measure that is being used to update and expand college classrooms and labs and modernize equipment to meet industry standards. Passage of the bond also results in CCC receiving $16 million in state matching funds, which will be used to support the Industrial Technical Center and Harmony West. The CCC Foundation is also raising an additional $5 million in 2016-17 to supplement the bond.

    The bond measure was developed after a two-year community engagement process, asking the community what they most valued and needed from the college today and in the future. The bond projects address the requests during this process. Career Technical and Transfer Degrees were identified as the top two areas for strategic improvement.

    Clackamas Community College has 27 buildings on three campuses in Oregon City, the Harmony Community Campus in North Clackamas and the Wilsonville Training Center. These projects would allow students to complete a two-year degree at any of the three campuses. Implementation of the bond projects includes opportunities for students, area businesses and local workforce.

  • Projects

    Project 1:

    Harmony West

    This project will replace the 61-year-old former Oregon Institute of Technology building on the Harmony Community Campus in Milwaukie. The new facility will allow CCC to continue to grow its Health Science, workforce development and general education offerings in the North Clackamas area.

    Project 2:

    Industrial Technical Center

    Construction of the Industrial Technical Center on the Oregon City campus, complete with labs and classrooms, will benefit electronics, automotive, manufacturing, welding, skilled trade and apprenticeship programs. Manufacturing, CNC Machining, Mastercam and microelectronics will be key tenants in this building.

    Project 3:

    DeJardin Science Addition

    The DeJardin Science building on the Oregon City campus will receive an addition and improvements to the existing facility. Along with the renovation and modernization of the remaining building, classrooms and facilities will provide modern science labs for students. Programs benefitting from the expansion include Water & Environmental Technology, High Purity Water, Nursing and Health Science. The expansion will also improve access to science labs, which is critical to university-bound transfer students.

    Project 4:

    Student Services/Community Commons Building

    This project replaces the current Student Services/Community Commons building on the Oregon City campus. The new student and community centered facility will allow CCC to co-locate critical support services such as veterans services, disabilities resources and career coaching in one convenient location. Helping students stay in school and on track with their career and academic pathways is a major priority for CCC.

    Project 5:

    Facility and Campus Upgrades

    Upgrades and renovations to existing facilities are expected to result in cost savings to the college through increased efficiencies.

  • Bond Project Goals

    • Increase local access to affordable educational programs that would allow students to transfer to four-year universities or obtain training for family-wage jobs.
    • Train students in high-demand careers, such as health sciences, engineering and manufacturing.
    • Update and modernize equipment so students are adequately trained to meet current industry standards.

    Citizen Oversight Committee

    The Citizen Oversight Committee will receive regular reports on all bond-related projects, ensure the bond projects reflect the community's input, and advise on public engagement strategies. Meetings are always open to the public.
