FAIRFIELD — The planning stages for Measure Q will begin this week for the $348 million bond voters passed in November for Solano College.
The Solano Community College Board of Trustees will meet at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday for a board study session that will center around Measure Q. They will meet at in the Board Room in the Administration Building at 4000 Suisun Valley Road in Fairfield.
It’s the first chance for the public, as well as two new board members, to see how the college will go about spending the bond money. Administrators have laid out some areas they hope to see improved, but have also tied it in with the college’s Facilities Master Plan.
The coming months should shed light on exactly what projects will be funding and with how much money. A citizens advisory committee will be picked at some point in the process.
Three agenda items have been dedicated to the measure, however no additional information about the content was provided by the college. Included is a talk from Rob Barthelman, vice president of STV/vbn Architecture, specifically about the Facilities Master Plan.
Also on the agenda is a discussion about legal and financing, led by Kerrigan Bennett with Stradling, Yocca, Carlson & Rauth. Finally, a report will be given on the support structure by Yulian Ligioso, vice president of finance and administration.
Measure Q was dubbed the “Classroom Repair, Safety and Job Training Measure.” During the election, proponents said the college planned to use the money to refurbish an aging Fairfield campus and improve both the Vacaville and Vallejo centers. Measure Q passed with 63 percent of the vote.
