General Obligation Bond C

General Obligation Bonds are the primary way to fund capital improvements at New Mexico higher education institutions and come before voters every two years. In 2012, General Obligation Bond C would provide funding to renovate aging infrastructure at higher education institutions across the state. The passage of GOB C would not raise taxes.

What does General Obligation Bond C include for NMSU?

The NMSU system would receive $24 million; $19 million will go toward the renovation of Hardman and Jacobs Halls on the Las Cruces campus. Of the remaining funding, $2 million will go to Doña Ana Community College for infrastructure renovation, and $1 million will go to each of the campuses at Alamogordo, Carlsbad, and Grants.

Why does Hardman Hall need renovation?

Hardman Hall is 38-years-old and contains classrooms and lecture rooms in which most every NMSU student will take a class. It also houses the Student Success Center, which helps provide services to students to help them develop skills needed to excel in College. Hardman Hall is in need of renovations to greatly improve the learning and teaching experience, and bring it up to 21st-Century technology standards.

Why does Jacobs Hall need renovation?

Jacobs Hall is 49-years-old and holds many of the university computer labs. The building was first built as a music building, and its spaces are not conducive to learning and teaching.

Will property taxes go up if GOB C Passes?

NO.
