SAN RAMON VALLEY -- Measure D, a $260 million school facilities bond measure, has officially passed by 1,205 votes.

The Contra Costa County Elections Division certified all election results Monday when it finished counting more than 60,000 mail-in and provisional ballots.

Property owners in the district can expect their property taxes to increase by an annual average of $27.75 per $100,000 of a home's assessed valuation. The tax increase will fund bonds that will finance 45 infrastructure and technology upgrades at district schools.

The measure needed 55 percent of the vote to pass and received 56.83 percent, or 37,380 of 65,774 votes cast.

Measure D opponent Mike Arata said opponents of the measure would not pursue a recount.

"The 1,200 vote difference is too big a statistical, process and expense hill to climb," he said.
