A citizens group has formed to support a San Luis Coastal Unified School District bond measure on the November ballot.
Amy Burton of Morro Bay, Brian Clausen of San Luis Obispo and Ann Dover of Los Osos have been named co-chairs of Central Coast Citizens for Measure D. Chris Delaney, a local certified public accountant, is serving as the group's treasurer. The leadership group is part of an all-volunteer, 20-member steering committee.
The bond measure is seeking $177 million for construction and renovation at district schools including upgrades for San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay High Schools, and renovation of facilities at other schools in the district.
"We have outdated, undersized, poorly lit classrooms designed over 50 years ago," said Ann Dover, co-chair of Citizens for Measure D. "Buildings are in disrepair. Roofs and plumbing leak and lack energy efficiency. We need to upgrade our learning environments and improve generations-old technology."
The San Luis Coastal Unified School District serves a total of 7,500 K-12 students in San Luis Obispo, Los Osos, Morro Bay, Avila Beach and unincorporated areas.
