About Measure MM
Measure MM is a $455 million general obligation bond approved by voters in 2016 to modernize aging facilities and upgrade instructional technology.
The measure will provide for several key improvements, including:
- Upgrades to the Veterans Center to enhance facilities and services which provide job training, job placement, counseling and support services
- Upgrades to career training facilities for science, health care, technology and skilled trades
- Modernize instructional technology for improved student learning in core subjects like math, science and technology
- Improve access for students with disabilities
- Repair or replace leaky roofs, worn-out floors and restrooms, old rusty plumbing and faulty electrical systems
- Update science centers and labs to allow for state-of-the-art courses in biology, chemistry and physical sciences
All Measure MM funds will stay in the MiraCosta community to support our local community college and students. The measure has qualified MiraCosta to receive state-matching funds for certain projects.
Measure MM received nearly two-thirds approval; 55 percent was required to pass the measure. The cost to taxpayers will be approximately $15 per $100,000 of assessed value annually.

Serving Our Veterans
Our local community college is one of the most important veterans services institutions in California. We provide job placement, job training and counseling to approximately 1,800 Navy, Marine and other military veterans and their families every day.
The college recently partnered with the Veterans Association of North County and Carlsbad-based ViaSat to create a new electronic assembly course that will prepare folks for jobs as electronic assemblers at advanced manufacturing companies.
The Veteran Business Outreach Center (VBOC) helps veteran business owners get certified to bid on government contracts; offer counseling and one-on-one assistance in developing business plans, financial forecasts and marketing plans; and help veterans get small business loans.
