What is the bond measure that the College of Western Idaho wants to pass?

College of Western Idaho has placed a $180 million general obligation bond on the November 8, 2016 ballot. This will be the first time that the voters of Ada and Canyon County have been approached for a bond since CWI’s inception in 2007. The College has grown from 1,200 students in its first semester in 2009 to serving more than 20,000 students a year with projected continued growth. The bond will be used to expand the campus facilities in Nampa and build a permanent Ada County Campus in Boise to deliver more programs and serve more students.
