FULLERTON (September 29, 2015) – The community is invited to an open forum on Oct. 21 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Building 200, Rooms 224-228 at Fullerton College to discuss projects funded by Measure J.

With the passage of Measure J, Fullerton College is embarking on a construction and renovation plan that will span more than 20 years. This meeting is in follow up to community forums that took place in the spring.

At the forum members of the college’s surrounding community 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.

Parking is free starting at 5 p.m. on Oct. 21. No citations will be given, and guests are welcome to park in any lot on campus.  Light refreshments will be served. Learn more and RSVP at fcbuild.eventbrite.com  or (714) 732-5054.
