Portland voters are one step closer to seeing another construction bond proposal from Portland Public Schools.
Board members agreed at their meeting Monday night on a $482 million bond plan. It would modernize Franklin, Grant and Roosevelt high schools and Faubion elementary school.
Dozens more schools would see new science labs, new roofs, and improvements for accessibility and seismic safety.
The bond would add $220 a year to the property taxes of a home assessed at $200,000.
The board intends to formally put the bond on the ballot in August.
Portland voters narrowly rejected a larger bond proposal in May of last year.
