July 15, 2021 -- Business representatives from Santa Monica and Malibu interested in serving on Santa Monica College's (SMC) Citizens Bond Oversight Committee have until next Friday to file their application.

Applicants to the seven-member committee must be representatives of the local business community, but other residents of the district can apply for future openings.

Applicants must be at least 18 years old, must not be a college employee or official and must not be a vendor, contractor or consultant to the college, college officials said.

The committee was established in spring 2002 as required by State law to oversee the implementation of Measure U, the $160 million bond approved by 70 percent of Santa Monica-Malibu voters.

The committee’s responsibility was expanded to include oversight of Measure S, the $135 million bond measure passed in 2004; Measure AA, the $295 million bond measure passed in 2008, and Measure V, the $345 million bond measure passed in 2016.

"The bond measures are funding a wide range of projects, including replacement buildings, seismic retrofitting, safety and technology upgrades," college officials said.

Among the projects funded is a new state-of-the-art math and science buildings on the main campus, a job training building on two of SMC’s satellite campuses and improvements to the main campus.

The bonds also are funding the replacement of 64-year-old Corsair Stadium, as well as ongoing efforts to make the college more sustainable, officials said.

Members of the committee are appointed for a two-year term by the Board of Trustees, which will review all applications before making the final appointments.

For more information on the application process, contact Lisa Rose, the committee’s coordinator at or call 310-434-4402.
