4) Discuss Possible Upgrades to Gavilan Sports Complex

Ron Hannon distributed a handout, "Gavilan College Sports Complex Upgrade Project, November 15, 2005." Ron reviewed the history of and relationship with the City of Gilroy concerning the Gavilan College Sports Complex to date. He noted that bond money was not earmarked for sports facilities. The improvements that are needed will have to be paid through fundraising efforts. Ron reviewed the purpose and three phases recommended for project improvements.

Ron answered questions and received comments from the Committee members.

The Board asked that Ron discuss this project at the December Board meeting as an information item. The next step would be to ask the Board to take action at the January Board meeting. The action would be the authorization to proceed with the Sports Complex project.

Ron also discussed a very tentative concept concerning the development of a Gavilan Sports Stadium. This project would also need to be paid through fundraising efforts.

5) Review and Disposition of Draft Facilities Master Plan

Joe Keeler noted that additional discussions for building user groups were added to the schedule. He also pointed out that all comments made at the building user group discussions and also those submitted in writing, have been recorded and addressed by the project management team.

This report was presented by David Cartnal and Casey Michaelis. Please refer to the attached notes for the detail of this report.
