If the bond is passed, what would be the cost to taxpayers?

The district estimates that the proposed $27.5 million dollar bond, if passed, would not increase the current tax rate.

If passed, the Bond would maintain the current rate property owners in the Redmond School District are paying of $2.31 per $1,000 of assessed value.

State Matching Funds

The State of Oregon has awarded a matching funds grant of $7.6 million to help fund Bond projects. The District would only receive the grant if the bond measure passes.

Oversight

An independent, citizen-led Bond Oversight Committee will be established to oversee the use of bond funds if the bond passes.
