FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FULLERTON (March 13, 2015, updated March 26, 2015) – Following the passage of Measure J, Fullerton College is now embarking on a comprehensive planning process that will determine the location and sequencing of building and renovation projects on its campus.
As an initial step in this planning, the college is seeking input from the community. An open forum was held from 6-8 p.m. on March 23. Upcoming forums will be April 15 and 21. The April 21 forum was added to give the surrounding community another opportunity to provide input. At these forums, 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.
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 include: a parking structure, a performing arts center, a student services building, a maintenance operations building and renovations to Buildings 100, 300, 500 and 600.
Forums will be repeated:
- March 23, 2015, 6-8 p.m., Fullerton College, Building 200, Room 224
- April 15, 2015, 6-8 p.m., Fullerton College, Wilshire Auditorium
- April 21, 2015, 6-8 p.m., Fullerton College, Building 200, Room 224
Light refreshments will be served. Learn more and RSVP at http://fullcollbuild.eventbrite.com or 714-732-5054.
