Building a Better Learning Environment – Facilities Master Planning Process Update

Sacramento City College and the entire Los Rios Community College District is in the process of completing a complex and thorough facilities master planning process. During the process, it has become clear that current identified priorities lean heavily toward modernization of Sacramento City College and District systems as opposed to constructing new facilities, with an emphasis on creating adaptable learning spaces. Upgrading existing facilities to become more flexible will enable Sacramento City College the District to do more with less by efficiently using current space. By building smarter and creating classrooms and other learning environments that can easily be reconfigured to serve additional purposes, Sacramento City College and the District can better adapt and respond to the needs of its faculty and student populations. A large component of the updated Plan will also cover actions that promote water and energy sustainability and conservation as Sacramento City College and the District strive to achieve a zero net energy target.

The final Plan will be made available upon completion.

Funding Campus Improvements

Los Rios will use a mixture of state and District bond funds to design and construct buildings outlined in the facilities master plan. Historically, the District has been able to leverage local bond funds by successfully competing for state matching funds. Over the past two decades, Los Rios has brought over $100 million in matching funds back to the Sacramento region through effective planning. We will continue this practice in the interest of being prudent with local resources.
