LONGMONT, CO-The St. Vrain School District in this fast growing area north ofBoulder is only the state’s 11th-largest school district. On Nov. 6, it will ask local voters to approve a $353-million bond issue, the largest in Colorado’s history.

If approved, the district would use the proceeds to build 11 schools.

The largest bond issue to date was in 1992, when Jefferson County voters approved a $325-million bond sale. But Jefferson County is thestate’s largest school district.

Of the $353 million St. Vrain hopes to raise, $196 million would go for new schools. Another $19 million would be used to build a district swimming pool, event center and teen activity facility. A 5,500-seat stadium also would be built. Another $105 million is earmarked for renovating schools and rebuilding of an elementary school at a different site.

The referendum would cost the owner of a $250,000 home another $120 a year in property taxes.
