  Committee Resources: Steve Kinsella and Joseph Keeler

1) Call Meeting to Order: Trustee Tom Breen called the meeting to order at 4:10 p.m.
2) Approve Minutes: Minutes and discussion notes from the January 17 meeting were approved unanimously. MS (Dover/Smith).
3) Comments from the Public: No comments from the public.

4) Status of Measure E Projects and Time Lines

Joe distributed and discussed a handout, "Gavilan JCCD - Interim Housing Options". The handout analyzes and costs out four (4) different options for swing space. Option # 3 in particular involves the installation of portables, utilizing two existing Occupational Ed (OE) lecture spaces, and permanently building and placing MIS and Administration of Justice (AJ) in the OE building. Option # 3 is what the renovation team is recommending the District pursue.

A second handout, "Group I Projects - Phasing Plan," illustrated Option # 3 by providing an area layout and timelines. With these timelines, it is estimated that the OE would need to be vacated by December 2006. In addition to costs, Joe indicated that the health and safety of students and staff and noise during construction is of primary importance. Those issues will be taken into consideration when determining staging areas and pedestrian and traffic flow.

Joe also discussed how it is important at this point to have staff do a deep cleaning of their areas. April 7 has been designated as "spring cleaning" day. A handout was provided that identified the process for having surplus items picked up for disposal. After the clean up, it will be determined what space is available in existing buildings for interim housing.

Joe discussed various other issues concerning campus projects; i.e., water tanks and pumps, members of the renovation team, and CEQA issues as they relate to the development of the golf course property.

5) Next Meeting Date

The next meeting will be arranged as needed.

6) Adjourned Meeting adjourned.

Please help keep Gavilan College a litter-free campus and preserve its park-like setting.
