Building for the Future
I’m very pleased to inform you that City College of San Francisco is in a position to realize long-term goals for improving and upgrading existing College buildings and constructing new ones. Through the generosity of the citizens of San Francisco, who overwhelmingly approved education facilities improvement bonds in 1997 and 2001, the College continues to forge ahead on a number of district-wide capital projects illustrated in this publication. Totaling $245 million, the two City bonds enabled us to leverage our resources against those of the State resulting in an additional financial commitment of $135 million of State funding to support major CCSF facilities improvement projects.

We are moving forward to realize our dreams with a number of new buildings on the Ocean Avenue Campus including a joint facility with San Francisco State University. A ground breaking of our new Student Health Center will take place in June 2005, with similar dedication ceremonies being scheduled soon thereafter for the Child Development Center and the Community Wellness Center. Renovation work has started at the 106 Bartlett Street site of our Mission Campus and the College’s Downtown Campus. We are also finishing the architectural design phase of the new Chinatown/North Beach Campus. Facility improvements continue at the John Adams, Evans and Alemany campuses.

I wish to assure you that the College is making good on its commitments to improve its facilities district-wide. I’m proud to share this status report with you regarding our progress on the $195 million bond passed in 2001. We look forward to your favorable consideration of our new bond scheduled for the November 2006 ballot. It will enable us to complete the essential facilities improvements for the future City College of San Francisco, especially a new Community Cultural, Performing and Media Arts Center.
