Funding for a film production center, a space for students with children, improvements to facilities for students learning trades and a collection of other projects will be voted on later this fall during a Central New Mexico Community College bond election.
The college, which has more than 20,000 students, is asking voters for permission to borrow $84 million and issue negotiable general obligation bonds for a series of projects. If approved, the projects won’t raise taxes in the college district, which includes residents of the Albuquerque and Rio Rancho public school districts, said CNM President Katharine Winograd.
The bonds will be the primary source of funding for 11 future CNM projects worth about $111 million.
