2022 Election

Hanover School District 28 is posing a bond question (4B) at the 2022 (El Paso County Consolidated) General Election - November 8, 2022.

Hanover School District is asking the taxpayers to allow the District to acquire up to $13.8M additional debt financed via bonds and to fund these bonds by extending the 2002 Bond Approval.
 
The proposed debt would fund the following changes (for more details refer to the District Master Plan):
– Infrastructure changes to improve the health and safety at both schools
– expansion of Prairie Heights Elementary school (essentially doubling the size of the school)
 
Our plan is to fund the majority of these changes through a BEST grant (~70% funded through the state) and only to fund our required match (~30%) through bonds.
This proposed bond would not increase taxes above that allowed by the current 2002 Bond Approval (basically the District is not proposing to increase your taxes).

The language of the bond question on the ballot will be:

WITHOUT IMPOSING ANY NEW TAX, SHALL HANOVER SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 28 DEBT BE INCREASED UP TO $13.8 MILLION, WITH A MAXIMUM TOTAL REPAYMENT COST OF NOT MORE THAN $25.125 MILLION; AND SHALL THE TAXES AUTHORIZED AT THE DISTRICT’S BOND ELECTION IN 2002 BE EXTENDED AND AUTHORIZED TO BE USED TO PAY THE DEBT AUTHORIZED AT THIS ELECTION IN ADDITION TO THE DEBT AUTHORIZED AT SUCH PRIOR ELECTION; FOR CAPITAL NEEDS OF THE DISTRICT INCLUDING:
