CCC’s Campus Buildings To Benefit From Senate Bill 338

On Thursday, February 5th, Governor Ted Kulongoski signed into law Senate Bill 338, the “Go Oregon” state stimulus plan. This plan authorizes $175 million in bonding to fund projects that will make needed repairs to schools, colleges, transportation infrastructure and address deferred maintenance projects across the state. The projects will create jobs for Oregonians at a time when the unemployment rate continues to climb. Included in this “economic stimulus package" is $1,875,000 for Clatsop Community College (CCC), providing funds for previously postponed maintenance, renovation and construction projects; projects that are meant to stimulate the local economy through job creation and retention.

“This is great news! These funds will allow us to make significant improvements on facilities not currently part of the Jerome Campus Redevelopment Project,” says CCC President Greg Hamann. “We are grateful to Senator Johnson and Representatives Witt and Boone, whose strong support of the College and our community has once again reaped real benefit for the people of Clatsop County through jobs creation today and improved educational opportunity for the years to come.”

As a result of this funding for Clatsop, there will be improvements in a variety of campus buildings including Patriot Hall, the Art Center, Badollet Library, Allied Health Sciences Building, MERTS I, and the Performing Arts Center.

“The majority of work will be to improve the energy efficiency and maintain the structural integrity of these College buildings. New roofs, lighting and energy efficient HVAC systems will improve our facilities, resulting in a better learning environment for our students,” says Lindi Overton, Vice President of College Services at CCC.

For more information, please contact the President’s Office at 503-338-2425.

Clatsop Community College is an affirmative action, equal opportunity institution.
