Upcoming Construction Projects at Hartnell College to be Discussed at Community Meeting on April 23

April 12th, 2004

Upcoming construction projects at Hartnell College - including a $21.6 million Learning Resource Center (library) and a $17.2 million parking structure - will be discussed Friday, April 23, at a campus meeting that is open to the community.

The "construction update" meeting will be held at 1 p.m. in the board room of the Classroom/Administration Building (CAB).

The purpose of the monthly meetings is to keep community members, Hartnell faculty, staff members and students informed on the progress of construction projects and campus upgrades, which were funded by the successful passage in 2002 of the college's $131 bond measure and other state funds, according to Hartnell College President Edward J. Valeau.

On hand for the presentation will be Michael Maas, who is working with Hartnell as a consultant in planning, funding and environmental issues. His firm has managed more than $3 billion in capital construction projects throughout California.

In addition to the construction of the library and parking structure, the College over the next several years - will build additional classrooms, renovate existing buildings, upgrade technology systems, update safety equipment, and bring the College into the 21st century.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the library and parking structure will be held Tuesday, May 18, from 2-5 p.m. on campus.
