AnEugene School District Bond Issue proposition was approved on the May 21, 2013, election ballot in Lane County, which is in Oregon.

This measure authorized the Eugene School District 4J to increase its debt by $170 million through issuing general obligation bonds. This money would be used to replace or renovate four school buildings and provide technology, instructional material, safety and security improvements across the district. The property tax levy rate of the district would increase by an estimated 24 cents per $1,000 dollars, costing about $42 per year for homeowners with homes assessed at median value of $174,000. Under this approximate tax rate, the debt would be paid in 20 years.[1][2]
