EUGENE, Ore. -- Close to 100 people showed up to the 4-J School District for a bond measure community forum. 

The meeting was for community members to give input before the board takes action on a proposed bond measure that could go to voters this November.

Community officials said a $350 million bond would cost the owner of a median home an extra $13 a month. The money would go to new schools, building repairs, safety and security, and technology advances.

One community member told KEZI 9 News that this bond is important for the future.

"I think this is a huge investment in our future,” said Jamie Hock, school counselor and parent. “It's not just looking at having these beautiful pretty buildings and all of the fancy equipment, it's really about having a safe environment where kids and the family and community can feel safe."

An open work session will be held on Aug. 8. On Aug. 15 a decision will be made whether or not to add the proposed bond measure to the November ballot.
