CWI Bond

The College of Western Idaho is asking voters for $180 million to expand its Nampa campus and add a second, permanent Ada County campus in Boise.College officials believe the bond issue may be the largest educational construction bond in Treasure Valley history. As a bond issue, two-thirds of voters in CWI's district - Ada and Canyon counties - must vote in favor for it to pass.The bond would cost homeowners an estimated $22.31 each year per $100,000 taxable value of their property, after the homeowner's exemption is accounted for. For example, the owner of a house with Ada County's August median home-sale price of $253,000 would pay $35.31 for the bond if it existed this year.Follow this link for a Q&A on the bond, why college officials are pursuing it and what it means for students and landowners.
