Proposition S​

The project consists of land acquisition and construction of a new building to consolidate the current programs at the César E. Chávez and Centre City campuses. The 67,924 square foot facility houses 22 classrooms for vocational training, English as a Second Language (ESL), Adult Basic Education (ABE), high school equivalency preparation classes, Business Information Technology (BIT), Parent Education and Emeritus (age 55+) programs. The new building also includes a multi-purpose room, administrative offices, and space for a Small Business Incubator. Underground parking provides 149 spaces, including preferred parking for carpools and high efficiency vehicles. The design is on track to obtain a LEED Silver certification.
Concurrent with the construction of the new classroom building, a new parking structure was constructed adjacent to the campus with 320 spaces to accommodate additional parking needs.
Sustainable Features:
  • The energy efficient design exceeds state building efficient standards by at least 14%.
  • Low-flow and waterless plumbing fixtures reduce water consumption by over 40% as compared to a typical building.
  • A modular wetland structure captures and filters storm water. These structures look like slightly raised planters located near storm drains. Runoff is filtered by vegetation, improving quality before it enters the storm drain system.
  • Easy access to public transportation. Bicycle storage and changing rooms are provided.
  • Drought tolerant landscaping and high efficiency irrigation reduce landscape-related water use by at least 50%.
