Document Description
State Center Community College District’s proposed First Responders Campus Project consists of developing and operating new facilities to provide instruction and training for police, fire, corrections, EMT and paramedic programs at a single special-purpose campus. The project is located on the western 20.0 acres a 39.21-acre parcel situated at the northwest corner of Willow and North Avenues in Fresno County. The project includes eventual annexation to the City of Fresno and buildout and installation of public utilities infrastructure necessary for the project’s operation. Facilities planned as part of the project include approximately 61,600 square feet of academic building space and approximately 116,300 square feet of space for specialized site facilities. The academic buildings consist of single-story modular structures which would house facilities such as classrooms, breakout rooms, conference rooms, administrative offices, restrooms, lounges, locker rooms, and storage space. The specialized site facilities include a scenario village, physical training areas (including a running track and turfed recreation areas), a 38-foot-tall portable burn tower structure, a burn box, a grinder pad, a driving pad, maintenance/facilities yard, and vehicle storage. The campus would also include asphalt-paved parking areas, landscaping, and an onsite stormwater retention pond. The campus is planned to accommodate up to approximately 270 students at one time and be staffed by up to 50 employees, including administrators, faculty, and support staff. Operational hours would range from 4:00 am to 10:00 pm on weekdays throughout the year, with most activity on the campus taking place during morning and afternoon hours and more limited activities occurring during evenings and weekends. If approved, the project is expected to begin construction in early 2022 and begin operating in late 2023.
