MiraCosta College’s Community Leaders Open House and Tour
Community Learning Center (CLC)
1831 Mission Avenue, Oceanside
Monday, October 25, from 4 to 5:30 p.m.
RSVP by October 17 to firstname.lastname@example.org
The event will include a tour of the newly constructed 10,770 square foot Student Services Building at the Community Learning Center Campus and release of the District’s Annual Report.
The Student Services Building serves as the home for essential student support services, including Admissions and Records, Counseling, Testing Services, CARE, and the Student Success and Support Programs. The new building, along with a dramatic new monument sign at the entrance to the campus, provides a welcoming new gateway for the Community Learning Center.
The student gathering area opens to a plaza within a quad, providing a physical connection between the new building and the existing facilities to help unify the campus. The quad will allow for large events and includes bike racks, a seat wall, tables, and a campus information kiosk.
The $12.3 million facility is highly energy-efficient and includes several sustainable design strategies:
Additional projects at the Community Learning Center Campus funded by Measure MM include the renovation of the A and B buildings, (now known as the 100 and 200 buildings, and a site improvement project. Buildings 100 and 200 comprise nearly 39,000 square feet and will house the campus library, tutoring services, the California Adult Education program, classroom space, and faculty offices. The $13 million project is scheduled to be completed this month.
The site work project also includes demolition of the former Building C to create space for critically-needed parking and improved landscaped areas for campus use. This project is in the design phase currently, with construction planned for the summer and fall of 2022.
These projects are funded as part of MiraCosta's Measure MM, a $455 million general obligation bond approved by voters in 2016.
The program and construction manager for the capital improvement program is Kitchell Capital Expenditures Manager (CEM), in association with Element Consulting, Inc., and Vic Salazar Communications.
Detailed information about all of the District's Capital Improvement projects is available for public review through the Capital Improvement Dashboard at miracosta.edu/measuremm. The Dashboard provides build-out details, financial performance, and project schedule performance.
