  1. Facilities Master Plan Our current Facilities Master Plan (FMP) was created in 2012. The Plan was created to include updates through 2012 and future plans which would finish out the Measure A funds. A committee has been working to create a Strategic Action Plan (SAP) as a result of the Educational Master Plan (EMP). Section 4.2 found in the EMP Recommendations identifies a number of action items which the Facilities Committee will work closely on in the near future.


  1. Land Acquisition Plan The SAP recommendations request we develop a land acquisition plan to analyze the quality and quantity of current space and future needs as well as identify options and strategies for acquiring financial support.

  1. Welding Facility Taft College was able to secure a building located in the Industrial Park and has secured a lease with the Beard Family Trust. Some work is being done to properly vent the building for the welding classes and Instruction hopes the building will be ready to have some classes in the 2015 spring semester. (Included on the Intranet is a copy of the document Mark Williams submitted to the GC in September for their approval.)
  2. Total Cost of Ownership – Student Center Jose distributed a draft analysis of the TCO for the Student Union. The purpose of a TCO analysis is to make sure financial planning has included enough funds to cover running the building, updates, maintenance, and future modifications to keep the facility modern.
