This November, Mecklenburg County residents will be asked to vote on a bond package consisting of $290 million for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) and $210 million for Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC). CMS plans to use the money toward 17 projects that will relieve overcrowding, offer more academic options for students, and renovate, replace and improve existing facilities. CPCC’s portion will fund ten projects that will expand and modernize its facilities, provide technical training space, and add instructional classrooms and labs.
REBIC supports the bond referendum as an essential way to raise much-needed capital that CMS and CPCC need to keep pace with Mecklenburg County’s growth. We will continue to work with the Charlotte Chamber and other bond campaign partners in the weeks ahead to educate real estate industry members and the general public about the importance of voting YES for Education Bonds on Tuesday, November 5th!
