Following the passage of Measure J, Fullerton College is embarking on a planning process that will determine the location and sequencing of projects on its campus for the next 20 years. As an initial step in this planning, the college is seeking input from the campus community and the community at-large at a series of open forums. The upcoming meetings are in follow up to community forums that took place in the spring.
The campus community forum will be on Oct. 20 from 1 to 2:30 p.m., and the community at-large forum will be on Oct. 21 from 6 to 8 p.m. Both forums will be in Building 200, Rooms 224-228. Members of the campus community are welcome to attend either meeting.
At the forums, faculty, staff and students are invited to give their input on proposed building locations and engage in a dialog with representatives from Fullerton College and the DLR Group, which is an integrated design firm providing architecture and planning consultation to the college. Architects will present findings and recommendations from community forums that took place in the spring.
Measure J was passed by a supermajority (55%) of the voters in the North Orange County Community College District on Nov. 4, 2014. The bond provides $574 million to NOCCCD for critical facilities needs such as upgrades to antiquated science labs, lecture halls, and classrooms, as well as technology and infrastructure to better prepare students for growing fields of study and high-skill careers, and expansions of veterans’ resource centers to train and re-train veterans as they transition into the civilian workforce. Facility renovations will happen on each of the District’s three campuses: Fullerton College, Cypress College and the School of Continuing Education.
At Fullerton College, those projects are currently projected to include: a parking structure, a performing arts center, a one-stop student services building, a maintenance operations building and renovations to Buildings 100, 300, 500 and 600.
Light refreshments will be served. Find out more by visiting the bond projects webpage.
