Student Center:

The Student Center is currently in the Design Phase. Meetings have been held with the College’s Student Center Committee and Design is overall 95% complete. Working drawings have also been started and are in process. The current anticipated construction start date is summer of 2014 pending completion of the Dorm project. Subsequent meetings have been held with Bookstore to revise design. (See attached floor plan).



Dorm Modernization:

Working drawings are at DSA being reviewed for DSA code compliance. Hopefully they will be back by December so we can go out to bid. The first phase on the Dorm project is scheduled to start during the second quarter of 2013 pending TIL Center completion. The construction of the dorm project will run through the summer of 2013 for fall 2013 occupancy of Phase 1. Phase 2 will then follow for an overall project completion of January 2014 for Spring Semester use.

The Facilities Master Plan is almost complete. The plan will include past projects that have been completed using Measure A money, the current projects and those that are waiting approval. The next step will be to prepare a Facilities Master Plan covering 2017 and beyond.


Brock informed the committee that he and Dena are continuing to look at possible solutions to our landlocked situation. We do own the property where the old motorcycle shop was however it is too small to accommodate any of our current needs.


You may recall there were several drill sites that the college made offers on. Brock informed the committee that the college was able to purchase two of those sites.


  • Regarding Student Center Design; suggestion was made to increase size of staff dining; questions related to changing room instead of restroom off Bookstore; concerns related to location of copy room and access.
  • Vocational building is the next project on the states list. It needs to be connected to the campus.
  • The Technology Building could be moved up on the list since it will house more labs and classrooms.
