Tarrant County College has launched a new website through which Tarrant County residents can follow the progress of the College’s $825 million bond program that voters approved in November 2019. The purpose of the bond program is to enhance technology and facilities essential to educating and training the region’s future workforce. The new website also is designed to help vendors interested in submitting proposals to find information about the RFP process.
The new website will provide a real-time dashboard to include details about the District’s various bond-funded renovation and construction projects, including investments being made on each project, start dates and projected completion dates. “It was important to develop a website specifically for our constituents to track the progress of our bond program to demonstrate our commitment to being a transparent, data-informed and community-centered organization,” said TCC Chancellor Eugene Giovannini.
TCC has retained a project management firm to ensure the bond projects are built on-budget and on-time.
With the 2019 bond passage, voters did not experience an increase in property taxes. This is the first bond package election for TCC since 1993. Since 1993, annual enrollment at TCC has almost doubled, increasing by more than 45,000 students.
