Facilities Master Plan 2021-2026 Task Force

With Board approval of the FHDA Facilities Master Plan 2021-2026 in May 2021, the work of the task force is complete. No further meetings will be held.

Task Force Duration: 10/13/2020 - 04/22/2021.

05/03/2021 - The Board approved the Foothill-De Anza Community College District - 2021-2026 Facilities Master Plan (FMP)

4/22/2021 - College Council reviewed the presentation and approved the final De Anza Facilities Master Plan

The Facilities Master Plan 2016-2021 is due for an update. It is the role of the Campus Facilities team to oversee the development of the next five-year FMP. Following the passage of the Measure G bond in the amount of $898,000,000 on March 3, 2020, the FMP is being updated one year early.  The Campus Facilities team is part of the shared governance structure. Members are appointed by the various constituent groups. The Campus Facilities members and  advisory members form the core of the FMP task force.  The FMP task force also includes volunteers. On October 6, 2020  an email was sent out to the Academic Senate, Classified Senate, DASB, Equity Action Council and the administrators to request volunteers (in addition to the Campus Facilities Committee) to serve on the task force.  All names forwarded via the constituent groups were invited to serve on the task force.  The task force members were tasked with sharing their thoughts and ideas on the needs of the campus as a whole, looking forward over the next 10 – 40 years and not just to represent their own areas over the short term.
FHDA has contracted with Gensler an educational architecture, design and planning firm who guided and produced our current FMP (2016-2021) to work with us for the 2021-2026 FMP.

FMP Task Force Timeline

Meetings held on Tuesdays 2-4 p.m. Presentations are provided by Gensler and will be posted after the meetings once received by the college.
