College of the Canyons trustees dissolved the Measure C Citizens Oversight Committee this week.

All of the money from the $82.5-million, voter-approved bond measure has been spent.

Local voters passed Measure C on Nov. 6, 2001, so that the Santa Clarita Valley’s only community college could embark on a number of construction projects.

Those projects include the Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook University Center, a 50,000-square-foot building on the Valencia campus where students can earn bachelor’s and graduate degrees through university partners.

Other projects included the creation of a science laboratory building to enhance classroom and study space for students, as well as the expansion and upgrades to the college’s physical education center.

Because of state law, COC trustees appointed the seven committee members in 2002 to ensure that bond revenues were spent only for the purposes authorized by law and on the projects that are specified by the bond measure.

Now that all of the projects have been completed and the money has been spent, the citizens committee is no longer needed.
