FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE PORTERVILLE, Calif. – (April 25, 2018) – The community is invited to participate in an upcoming meeting to provide feedback on Porterville College’s Facilities Master Plan, which provides a comprehensive framework for addressing the needs of the college facilities for the benefit of students, dedicated faculty and supportive service staff.
The meeting will take place at 11 a.m. Monday, May 14, in the Student Center on PC’s campus.
The Facilities Master Plan also will assist in aligning the college’s Educational Master Plan with campus improvement and building projects that will be funded through the Measure J Bond. In November 2016, Porterville and its surrounding communities voted on and approved Measure J, which is providing $44 million to repair and upgrade the college’s facilities. After celebrating the 90th anniversary of the college last year, a new chapter is being written at PC.
“PC’s focus is on building and maintaining a sustainable infrastructure that provides for an inspiring place to teach and learn,” PC Vice President of Finance and Administrative Services Arlitha Harmon said. “The Educational and Facilities master plans provide a roadmap to aid the college in meeting student and employer demand for higher education. As major facilities improvement projects will be underway, we want to ensure that the community has a voice in the outcomes”.
Community members who are unable to attend the May 14 meeting are encouraged to complete PC’s campus experience survey at www.portervillecollege.edu/facilityneeds. The information collected at the campus meeting and through the survey will shape the legacy of PC.
