New Monument Sign

New Monument Sign in Design for MiraCosta College Community Learning Center
A visual and physical change is being drawn up for the Community Learning Center Campus of the MiraCosta Community College District (MCCCD). Design work has started for a new monument sign that will serve as a visually impressive gateway to the North Oceanside campus. Funding for the project is provided by Measure MM, the $455 million bond measure approved by district voters in November 2016.
"The Monument Sign is a stand-alone structure," said MiraCosta Facilities Director Tom Macias. "We see the new sign as an important step in our effort to improve the student and visitor experience on campus. It's going to be a recognizable landmark for years to come."
The construction of the new monument sign will be completed by the end of August 2019 and is one of many improvements planned at MCCCD's Community Learning Center.
A new Student Services Building is also currently in the design phase. Construction for that project is anticipated to start in September 2019, and be completed by September 2020.
