Prioritized Projects

Prioritized Projects

The District will compile a comprehensive list of projects that should be considered as part of the proposed bond measure in order of priority, which will be presented to the Board of Trustees in early 2024.

The development of the list began in early 2023, with a comprehensive Facilities Condition Index (FCI) assessment completed for all facilities at each college. A preliminary list of project priorities was developed using the assessment and adhering to a set of guiding principles:

  1. Safety first
  2. Facilities Strategic Plan (FSP) goals
  3. New buildings providing a new service to outweigh replacement or renovation of a building that provides a service already being provided
  4. Buildings with ‘low’ scores should generally rank low
  5. Minimize swing-space construction

Each college provided feedback on the assessment in April and May 2023 and created an initial priority project list. Colleges may continue to shift the order of the projects as necessary. The amount of bond funding voters indicate they support may additionally impact campus decisions as a districtwide master list is finalized.

The finalized list is expected to go before the Board of Trustees in February 2024. Some identified priorities include:
