Specific Bond Work Scope List

Tax Impact from 2023 Bond

If approved, residents are expected to pay $90 annually, or $7.50 per month, for a home with an estimated value of $200,000.

The physical environment shouldn’t get in the way of a child’s education. Lakeshore’s maintenance staff and administration use the district’s sinking fund and general fund wisely to meet the needs of the buildings and students. However, many large ticket items cannot be covered by the sinking fund alone, and are reaching the end of their lifetimes. 

The bond money is needed to maintain a quality education for all students, and to maintain the voter’s investment in public education.
