Document Description
The 2019 Facilities Master Plan Update to the 2015 Master Plan is a long-range plan for the development of facilities to support GCCD’s vision, mission, and goals. In 2015, the District prepared the GCCD 2015 Facilities Master Plan to reflect GCCD’s projected instructional and programmatic needs. The 2015 GCCD Master Plan outlines capital improvements through 2025 and proposes construction of new buildings, renovation, modernization and additions to existing facilities, demolition of existing buildings, and landscaping enhancements. Improvements are intended to update existing technological and program services to meet increasing needs of students and faculty. The 2019 Facilities Master Plan Update plans for expansion of instructional space, acquiring land to expand the Garfield Campus, expansion of the Montrose Campus, and various other campus upgrades in addition to what was included in the 2015 GCCD Master Plan. It recommends site and facilities improvements for three GCCD sites: the historic Verdugo Campus, the Garfield Campus, and the Professional Development Center. It addresses the growth in enrollment anticipated over the next decade. It describes college development strategies to support the Strategic Goals of the GCCD Educational Master Plan and the 2013 Garfield Campus Master Plan and positions GCCD to maximize funding and partnership opportunities. The Proposed Project includes elements listed in both the 2015 GCCD Master Plan and the 2019 Facilities Master Plan Update that are not currently underway or have not already been completed. An overview of the Project updates for the three campuses is provided below: Verdugo Campus: The GCCD 2019 Facilities Master Plan Verdugo Campus improvements would result in 228,853 square feet of renovation, 52,443 square feet of new construction, and 170,387 square feet of demolition. In addition, the Proposed Projects at the Verdugo Campus would add 650 parking spaces to the campus. Garfield Campus: The GCCD 2019 Facilities Master Plan Update Garfield Campus improvements would result in 43,090 square feet of renovation. Montrose Campus: The GCCD 2019 Facilities Master Plan Update Montrose Campus improvements would result in 21,559 square feet of renovation and 17,611 square feet of new construction. In addition, the Proposed Projects at the Montrose Campus would add up to approximately 100 parking spaces to the campus.
