Solano Community College Vacaville Center Project, Currently in Construction
The committee has completed Master Planning for this center. The cost estimates were based on the proposed programs and space requirements agreed upon at the time of the development of the District's Facility Master Plan. The Site consists of 60 acres. While proposed budgets have been developed, priorities at the District level are changing and the planning will need to take these changes into account. The project estimates also include the cost of Group II equipment for the space allocation defined in the project.
