With a needed 55% voter approval for each measure both passed handily with each measure receiving well over 60% of the votes.

Measures I and N from the San Francisco Examiner:
Five schools in Belmont would get new classrooms, repairs to leaky roofs and other improvements if voters approve two bond measures on the November ballot totaling $70 million.

Measure N would give the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District $35 million to spend on facilities at four Belmont elementary schools – Nesbit, Fox, Central and Cipriani.

Measure I, a companion measure, would generate $25 million for Ralston Middle School. Both need a 55 percent majority vote to pass.

Measure I would cost property owners about $11 per $100,000 of assessed value annually, and Measure N will cost about $27 per $100,000, according to the school district. *With the median price in Belmont at $850,000 right now that would mean an additional $110.50 per year.

Measure N only impacts Belmont schools, so voters in Redwood Shores would not be affected.
