Since 2013, City staff, consultants and a Project Core Team have identified desired facilities and program scenarios in the Civic Center Complex and conducted building structural assessments. The program and space needs for the Police Department and Campbell Library were identified as the highest priorities for the City through the Civic Center Master Plan efforts. A $50,000,000 general obligation bond measure (Measure O) was placed on the November 6, 2018 general elections ballot to fund a new police emergency operations center and improve the library. Measure O was approved by the voters by 69.5%.
Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee
The primary duties of the Oversight Committee are to review expenditure reports produced by the City to verify that bond proceeds were expended only for the purposes set forth in Measure O.
On November 6, 2018, City of Campbell voters approved Measure O with a ‘Yes’ vote of 69.5% by the citizens that voted in the General Election. Bonds issued pursuant to Measure O will generate approximately $50 million to construct and/or renovate City facilities to house Police and Library services. On August 5, 2020, the City issued the first series of Measure O Bonds at a premium of $23.1 million; $3.1 million over their par value. A second (and final) series of Measure O Bonds for $30 million is anticipated to be issued in August 2022.

- Assessing the parking implications of larger buildings and evaluating the feasibility of providing additional parking & including a parking structure – for the Civic Center complex;
- Addressing needs for replacing the City’s EOC as part of a new library or other component of the Civic Center complex;
