College to host open house
Special to the Tribune
Lake Tahoe Community College (LTCC) is hosting an open house on Thursday at 5 p.m. in the main building. The purpose is to inform the community about the LTCC’s recently passed bond measure, and to provide information and educate the public about what projects and new construction will be coming to campus. Food and refreshments will be served.
Measure F, the $55 million bond effort, passed in November. Bond funds will be used to upgrade and repair existing college facilities and infrastructure and will give rise to several new buildings in support of existing and future academic programs and student support services.
After 26 years of heavy use by students, staff and the community, the LTCC campus is showing its age. Classroom and lab technology is outdated, the aging HVAC systems are inefficient and costly to operate, and leaky roofs and deteriorating electrical, lighting, heating, ventilation and security systems are in need of repair or replacement throughout the campus. These problems have limited the quality of instruction, learning, job training, and career advancement. Measure F funding will directly address these matters, evolving the campus into a true destination college that draws students to the community and college.
With the passage of Measure F, LTCC’s Board of Trustees is seeking qualified, interested people to serve on an independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee (COC). The COC oversees the expenditure of bond money and acts to assure the community that funds are spent in the fashion outlined in the bond resolution. Those interested in serving on the committee, visit http://www.ltcc.edu/measuref for a PDF of the application. Submit the finished application in person to the Superintendent/President’s Office in the main building, or email to ShaferL@ltcc.edu for consideration. For more information, call 530-541-4660 ext. 210.
