Santa Monica College is looking for business owners in Santa Monica and Malibu who would like to serve on the Citizens Bond Oversight Committee, which oversees three bond measures approved by voters to fund capital improvement projects at the college’s campuses.

The application deadline for the committee is May 24.

To qualify, applicants must be at least 18 years old; must not be a college employee or official; and must not be a vendor, contractor or consultant to the college.

The SMC Board of Trustees will review all applications and make the final appointments. Applications are available by calling (310) 434-4402 or by going to and searching “bond oversight committee.”

The committee was established in spring 2002, as required by state law, to oversee the implementation of Measure U, the $160 million bond passed by 70 percent of Santa Monica-Malibu voters. The committee’s responsibility was expanded to include oversight of Measure S, the $135 million bond measure passed in November 2004, and Measure AA, the $295 million bond measure passed in November 2008.

The bond measures are funding a wide range of projects, including replacement buildings, seismic retrofitting, safety and technology upgrades, and more, officials with the college said.
