Measure E Projects at De Anza
Measure E is a $248 million bond approved in 1999 by voters in the Foothill-De Anza
Community College District, enabling the district to repair and rehabilitate college
facilities to meet current standards. Approximately $130 million was earmarked for
renovation and construction at De Anza.
The funds helped to pay for replacing aging roofs, plumbing and electrical systems;
refurbishing classrooms, science laboratories and restrooms; and constructing science
and high-tech computer labs, classrooms and school facilities.
Below are listed some of the significant Measure E projects at De Anza.
