|GSI Supports Mead and CV School Bonds|
Greater Spokane Incorporated voted to support the Mead and Central Valley School District bonds that will be found on the voting ballots in February.
The Board of Trustees of Greater Spokane Incorporated (GSI), the Spokane region's Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Council, voted to support the Mead and Central Valley School District bonds that will be found on the voting ballots in February.
GSI recently completed an analysis of the financial impact of the bonds, and determined that the local bond and state match dollars will result in a nonrecurring construction impact of $323 million. The projects will generate more than $2.8 million in local tax revenue and $8.3 million in state tax dollars during the construction period. Approximately 817 new jobs will be created as a result of the construction.
"GSI fully supports the bonds. The modernization of school facilities is crucial to support education, the recruitment of companies, and our overall quality of life," said Rich Hadley, President & CEO of Greater Spokane Incorporated.
GSI works in partnership with the k-12 and higher education systems as it creates the next generation of highly skilled and educated workforce. An educated and skilled workforce is vital to the success of businesses throughout our region.
