    The bond, set at $89.206 million, will support projects and initiatives that have been identified through a yearlong master planning process. The regents' decision to go forward with the bond vote was unanimous, according to the news release.

    According to the AC release, AC contracted with Parkhill, Smith, and Cooper to help develop a master plan for all seven of the campuses.

    Through this study, the group identified seven areas for the college to focus:

    • Development of a First Responders and Public Safety Academy
    • Student on-boarding and directional wayfinding,
    • Technology improvements
