On April 7, residents of the 11-county area served by CVTC were asked to vote on a referendum authorizing the College to create and expand our facilities. The facilities improvements would target programs that are in high demand and impact citizens across our region, including transportation, public safety, manufacturing, technology, and community partnership.
