COLLIN COLLEGE BOND PASSES

May 6, 2017 – Today voters approved Collin College’s $600 million bond proposal to facilitate a long-range plan to accommodate the projected population growth in Collin County over the next two decades.

“We are grateful for the community’s support of our vision for the future,” said Dr. Neil Matkin, Collin College district president. “Our master plan will now become a reality, allowing us to serve more students, residents, and businesses than ever before.”

With the passage of the bond issue, the college will address several priorities over the next five-to-seven years. Several new facilities will be built, including a public safety training center already under construction in McKinney. Other projects include a technical center in Allen, a campus in Wylie, educational centers in Celina and Farmersville, and an information technology center at the Preston Ridge Campus in Frisco.

“This is a win-win for Collin College and the community,” said Dr. Bob Collins, board chair and founding member of the Collin College board of trustees. “The programs and facilities included in the master plan will enable us to truly serve all of Collin County in the future.”
