Bond Measure E
In November 2004, voters in the Yosemite Community College District approved Measure E, the $326 million general obligation bond for the repair, upgrade and new construction of Modesto Junior College and Columbia College facilities and the expansion of college education centers in Patterson, Oakdale, Turlock and Angels Camp.
Facilities Master Plan
In August 2002, the Yosemite Community College District Board of Trustees commissioned staff to begin the process of developing a Facilities Master Plan for the District. Over the course of 16 months, committees representing all employee organizations and college and District personnel were established to plan the effort. The plan was later revised in June 2004.
The Yosemite Community College District will provide periodic updates regarding the Measure E bond program. Measure E Updates are sent to all staff to keep the campus community current on the progress and status regarding Measure E.
Citizens' Oversight Committee
The Committee's responsibility is to oversee the use of Measure E funds and to inform the public concerning the expenditure of bond revenues. The committee is comprised of a representative each from a college support organization, community college student, business organization, senior citizen organization, taxpayers association and at-large community representatives.
Program Management Plan
Kitchell produced the Program Management Plan (PMP) as a guidance tool for the implementation of the Measure E Bond Program. The PMP was developed by meeting with faculty and staff for each project and validating the program requirements of each funded project in the Facilities Master Plan. After these meetings, a resequencing occurred and was approved by the colleges to prepare the new program schedule.
The Program Management Plan reduces the program from a twelve-year program to a nine-year program. The PMP outlines the goals, scope, budget, schedule, and program for each project.
