Thanks to Measure R-RR funding, scores of projects have been completed, including major infrastructure work, renovated classrooms and facilities, new academic complexes, and state-of-the-art athletic fields. Following is a partial list of completed projects along with descriptions, renderings and photos. These projects were either fully funded by Measure R-RR dollars or partially supported by state and other funding sources.

West Parcel Solar Project
date updated: 5/3/2018
This project will consist of the development of a solar power generation system on the area of campus commonly known as the "West Parcel," a triangular piece of land located west of Grand Avenue, south of the Temple/Amar intersection, and south of the “Christmas tree lot.” This ground-mounted system will generate two megawatts of electricity for the campus and will save the college a projected $480,000 in energy costs annually.
Site development will include the import of 140,000 cubic yards of soil from elsewhere on campus and conservation of a total of 17 acres of Venturan coastal sage scrub (gnatcatcher habitat) in two areas—the West Parcel and an expanded area of the existing Wildlife Sanctuary. The conservation lands have been set aside in perpetuity by a restrictive covenant.
Project Status: The college will no longer build this solar project, per a settlement agreement in April 2018. Read more in the Newsroom story about the settlement.
Project Funding: Proposition 39 Clean Energy Grant and Loan funds, Edison Rebate funds and Unrestricted General Fund.
Project Completion: N/A
